Menu -> Preferences -> Openbox -> "How to edit menu"

Basically you need to edit `~/.config/openbox/pipemenus.rc`

Re: Adding items to Graphic section in OpenBox menu

It depends upon how your Root Menu (~/.config/openbox/menu.xml) is set-up.  If it is an ordinary static openbox menu, then enter Pinta as an item in the Graphics category.  See Lxlinux - Openbox Menu for more information.  If your graphics category is part of a dynamical submenu, then it should automatically appear if there is a .desktop file for it in /usr/share/applications.

But the default Graphics menuitem is populated by a pipemenu reading the pipemenus.rc file, which is a very different method.

Re: Adding items to Graphic section in OpenBox menu

As damo said. Here's an example where you can see I have modified some things from the defaults. Just make sure you put a space between each item and that the item is surrounded by single quotes:

# pipemenu.rc holds the applications which appear in the Openbox pipemenus
#
# Edit the arrays to add or remove package names, making sure there are spaces
# between each entry.

# Multimedia pipemenu (bl-multimedia-pipemenu)
MM_APPS=( 'vlc' 'mpv' 'audacious' 'smplayer' 'asunder' 'easytag' 'winff')
MM_EDITORS=('mhwaveedit' 'audacity' 'openshot')
MM_UTILS=('xfburn' 'gtk-recordmydesktop' 'volti' 'handbrake')

# Graphics pipemenu (bl-graphics-pipemenu)
GRAPHICS_APPS=( 'mirage' 'gimp' 'blender' 'inkscape' 'mandelbulber' 'viewnior' )
GRAPHICS_SCROTS=('xfce4-screenshooter' 'scrot' )

# Browsers pipemenu (bl-x-www-browser-pipemenu)
BROWSERS=('chromium' 'iceweasel' 'google-chrome-stable' 'opera' )
