The chances of putting custom programs up there will be slim. If you wanted to, you could just edit the menu and put two programs up top that you want.

The top favourites I may include though.

About the Firefox icon. Does Firefox have an icon in your Kmenu (usually Internet->Firefox)? The icon is pulled from there so if you change the icon in the Kmenu, it should update the default browser thing - Jul 11 2006
Thanks for sharing the ebuild.

It's been awhile since I've used Gentoo, but I believe it should have:

need-kde 3.5

line? Perhaps not, I haven't used Gentoo for awhile. - Jul 10 2006
Haha, thanks for the info. I've fixed the error! - Jul 10 2006
- Right click on the panel and choose "Configure Panel"
- Go to the "Menus" tab
- Put a checkmark next to "Bookmarks"
- Click "Apply" and "Ok"

- Right click on the applet and choose "reload configuration"

Hope this helps - Jul 10 2006
Haha, I hope this works for you now.

Give the beer to yourself, I have been putting off updating this for a long time. - Jul 09 2006
That's somewhat misleading. They used a Button that acts like a menu, while I'm using an actual menu.

The problem with the button solution is that there's no such thing as a button group with menus. They act as individual buttons, not as a menu. (see Konqueror's Bookmark Toolbar). This has been fixed in QT4. - Jun 06 2005
I understand now, just some preset settings to make the menu have a predefined look.

Hmm, I guess it could be done, but I'm not sure how much of the code would have to be re-written -- styling wasn't even a consideration when I started. I'll add it in the RFC part of my TODO and if I hear lots about it, I'll do it. - Jun 05 2005
I don't know what you mean. Could you please elaborate? - Jun 05 2005
What version of kdebase do you have?

It's erroring out because it can't find a library file that's installed from kdebase. - Jun 05 2005
I think I have this issue fixed, could you try 0.2.1 and see if the problem is gone?

Thanks - Jun 05 2005
According to that output, the menu should be running? You clicked on the Programs menu right?

If it only crashed the first time, like was described a few posts below, I've begun working on finding the problem - Jun 02 2005
The Network Folder menu is only shown if you have enabled it in "Kcontrol->Desktop->Panels -- Menus"

Thanks for the heads up that it won't run on first login, that should help narrow the places to look for problems. - Jun 02 2005
Sorry about that, I thought I had fixed it. I'll download SuSe one of these days so I can test it in the future. - May 31 2005
Could you guys do this for me please?

in Konsole:

kill -9 `pgrep kicker` && kicker --nofork

--then add the applet and share with me the output.

Thanks. - May 31 2005
There was a problem in my last release with a person running a CVS build and it would exhibit the exact same behaviour.

I won't support CVS KDE installs because if you grabbed from HEAD (or whatever it is now) it's a moving target. I'm sure you understand. - May 31 2005
Sorry, I couldn't fix the bug. I thought I did, but after further testing I couldn't.

Just thought I'd let you know that it wasn't fixed, sorry. - May 30 2005
I have worked on it again, and I still can't figure out how to do that. Trust me, that was what I wanted to do. Either QMenuBar is bugged or I'm too stupid to figure it out. It's most likely the latter. - May 30 2005
Most Used Apps may be enabled for version 0.3, but not this release. I've entered a self-imposed feature freeze to deal with bugs and performance right now, sorry.

I assume you have the menu at the bottom of your screen? I believe the next version will fix it.

A few more days hopefully. - May 16 2005
version 0.2 should be released in a few days and I think I may have that fixed... I'm still baffled by automake, but I think I've solved the problem. - May 16 2005
The size is determined by the font size. Setting a smaller font will shrink the whole menu. - May 16 2005
I believe we'll disagree about the Run command. Run in my opinion a last resort. It is used when there is no menu item for the application they want to use. Using the Run command when there already exists a menu item may actually take longer in most circumstances. Click on run, move hands to keyboard and type....

For others who know the program (binary name) they want to run, they could probably use their whole desktop with just a run command. And in that case, ALT+F2 is faster than any menu could ever be.

Obviously I don't have any usability tests on menu use, but it makes sense to me. However, I'm always open to ideas. Thanks for sharing your opinions and backing them up with an argument. If I hear a bit more about this issue or it becomes a frequent topic (like customizing Actions|Desktop, kmenu icon) I'll be sure to make it configurable....

Your ideas on Trash are good as it'd make the item somewhat useful. Thanks - Apr 05 2005
If the suggestion below works, that's great, but if not, try exporting these env var's

export WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6=1
export WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5=1

...With that said, I've never used suse so I'm not sure if those var's will do anything.... - Apr 04 2005
I disagree with the run command. Actions->run never made much sense to me, but Programs->run did. I run a program, not an action... *shrug*

The Trash I/O slave is actually in the file... I just commented it because it just seemed so useless and I didn't have a way to configure whether or not to show it... (menu_desktop.cpp line 115).

Just because the existing kmenu groups all those items in actions, doesn't necessarily mean it's a good thing. - Apr 04 2005
I had thought about doing that, but in the end decided against it. I didn't want all the actions menus to be in Actions.... In the next release or two, it will allow you to configure it and I'll enable every possible menu item in kicker/menuext - Apr 04 2005
what version of the auto tools do you use? I built it with automake 1.6 and autoconf 2.5 - Apr 04 2005
First, the kmenu image ought to be part of the Programs menu button.
Believe me, that was the plan but for some reason a menuitem in the menubar wouldn't display an icon for some reason. I'll get back at it though.

The configure script didn't find my KDE installation prefix, which is the standard for KDE - /usr/kde/3.4
Did you pass configure the correct --prefix command?

Thanks for the comments! - Apr 03 2005
* In desktop, Can be the item for Media a submenu? It would be more functional if it shows the media drives.
* An option to remove the K icon

Thanks, will add those.

* Configure the items shown in the menus Actions & Desktop
Indeed, I wanted to do this but quickly discovered how sloppy the configuration interface became with so many options for so many menu items so I left it out. I intend to do it, just not sure how to implement the config dialog.

Right now I'm trying to solve a crash bug but after that, I'll start working on those features. Thanks for the input! - Apr 03 2005
I can't reproduce and the only error I found in the files that I can see was the header file with an improper define (menu_programs.h line 22 should be MENU_PROGRAMS_H) but that shouldn't cause the crash.

I'm going add some more debug statements with ifdef's... something I should've done to begin with.

Thanks for the info - Apr 02 2005
hmm, could you guys do me a favor?

try doing this:

remove the applet from kicker

in konsole type this:
kill -9 `pgrep kicker` && kicker

then re-add the applet and crash it. Obviously I can't reproduce it, so I'm wondering if it'll give you any information. - Apr 02 2005

Compiled it fine after creating the moc stuff, but the configuration options don't show up in the control center after choosing flatKnifty. I get a blank space where I should see the config options.

Just a heads up, I ran into some compile problems where *.moc's wheren't generated.

I don't know what it all means, or why it happened, but I did fix it by manually creating the moc's. Example:

if /bin/sh ../libtool --silent --mode=compile g++ -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I./../../lib -I/usr/kde/3.3/include -I/usr/qt/3/include -I. -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT -D_REENTRANT -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -Wundef -Wall -W -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -ansi -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 -D_BSD_SOURCE -Wcast-align -Wconversion -Wchar-subscripts -O2 -Wformat-security -Wmissing-format-attribute -fno-exceptions -fno-check-new -fno-common -MT nvidia.lo -MD -MP -MF ".deps/nvidia.Tpo" \
-c -o nvidia.lo `test -f 'nvidia.cpp' || echo './'`nvidia.cpp; \
then mv -f ".deps/nvidia.Tpo" ".deps/nvidia.Plo"; \
else rm -f ".deps/nvidia.Tpo"; exit 1; \
nvidia.cpp:39:22: nvidia.moc: No such file or director

---- (then it would error out) ----

$ cd kwin && moc nvidia.h -o nvidia.moc && cd .. && make

The same would happen with kwin/config/config.moc

I'm using qt-3.3.2, kde-3.3.0_alpha1 if it means anything to you... Just a heads up really as this is all over my head.. thanks for the amazing work you're doing! - Jun 23 2004

Hmm, well I'll keep playing with it since I assume by your response the behaviour I am experiencing is not normal.

I have used BAB to preselect BM and then created child panels to no avail... I'll keep at it but I've restarted X quite a number of times lately...

Thanks for the help :) - Jun 11 2004
Great work!

Unfortunately I can't have my child panel's with the brushed metal look.

Each child panel comes out with a stippled background whereas the main or parent panel has the brushed metal look.

Could someone let me know if their child panel has a brushed metal look and if so, whether they had to do something special?

Thanks in advance - Jun 10 2004

I can't edit... I forgot to mention, the changes above assume you have the facilities already defined... but if you don't, a little bit of hacking should work in the filter directive - Feb 07 2004
Hey, a great collection! I had to make some minor adjustments to work with the tmessage.theme though...

First, I changed the text property's width to 570 since long lines were running outside of the background image...


Secondly I ran into permission problems with tmessage as well, but if you use syslog-ng, you shouldn't be chmod'ing files.... just make a new log for you to tail.

edit /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf

Add these lines:
source src { unix-stream("/dev/log"); internal(); pipe("/proc/kmsg"); };

destination messagesusr {file("/var/log/messagesusr" group("wheel") perm(0640)); };

filter f_messagesusr { level(info..warn)
and not facility(mail,news,cron); };

log { source(src); filter(f_messagesusr); destination(messagesusr); };

Then change the theme to tail /var/log/messagesusr

This of course assumes you're in group wheel... Hope this helps someone... - Feb 07 2004
