Setting up a kiosk with xfce looking for way to completely disable desktop right click menu, any ideas?
Settings Manager -> Desktop -> Menus Tab
That only removes the applications menu right?
I would like to remove the entire right click menu, so no menu appears when right clicking on desktop.
You can disable the menu by setting the desktop icons to none, in the last tab of desktop settings.
This will also eliminate your desktop icons, though.
I haven't been able to disable the menu, but not the icons.
I actually would have a use for the menu and the icons, just not the applications menu and the desktop settings.
Where is my yesterday post? o0
You can't disable desktop right click menu in kiosk mode.
Don't start xfdesktop in /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc
Thats odd, since thats exactly how I have set up mine...
Although I'm not really running in kiosk mode pre-se (i'm not using a kioskrc file). As I understand, in xfce 4.8 the kioskrc file does not work (I could not get it to work, at least), but you accomplish a similar effect by locking the xfce-perchannel-xml files in /etc/xdg/xfce/xfconf (ubuntu).
I have yet to try disabling xfdesktop. What about setting the desktop background without xfdesktop? Are there any other effects?

Does xsetroot not works?
Ok, I'll try that (also in xinitrc?)
So, no other side effects? Does it make a big difference performance wise?

hm... no desktop icons, no desktop menu, set desktop wallpaper within xsetroot...
If you want to disable the right click menu in xfdesktop you'll need to compile it with ./configure --disable-desktop-menu
