Yes, I am aware of that little dialog. But this functionality relies on lxqt-globalkeysd being running. That's not a big deal per se, its memory footprint is ridiculous by nowadays standards. But then I will have to keep an eye on two sets of key bindings: openbox and lxqt-globalkeysd, and double check that they do not overlap...

I all for keeping things simple so...

As an example, regular lxpanel from the original lxde comes with an lxpanelctl tool, and by invoking it this way the menu popups inmediatly:

$ lxpanelctl menu

The xfce regular menu and the xfce whisker menu both have a similar command line tool.

That's what I am after.

Thanks anyway, your answer is much appreciated :)

I think that the default binding is alt+f1.  You can configure this by
right clicking on the apps menu and choosing 'Configure "Application
