Doh. I'll correct these things soon. Looks like something distracted me while
I was looking for Felipe's full real name ;) Don't know why I haven't double
check this file.

I decided to remove Debian's artwork and set gNewSense theme default.
It wasn't necessery, I just wanted to avoid redundancy.  After removing
debian.tiff the "diff" file for sources is slightly smaller (no uuencoded tiff
inside). Currently it's ca. 350kb.

This menu is generated with update-menus command. It uses layout defined
in /etc/X11/WindowMaker/menu.hook (there should be "menu.hook" in your
WMRootMenu file). The script should automaticaly insert gNewSense name
in titlebar. Maybe you have used WindowMaker in the past and changed WMRootMenu
(maybe using I'm not sure but can you look at WMRootMenu in

Unfortunatelly, there is another problem. Somehow I included different
gNewSense theme which uses different background image (not available in the
package). I'll fix all this problems as soon as possible. Looks like RERO 
syndrome ;/ Package definetly needs more polishing.
