A Menu Proposal

A Menu Proposal

This mockup is meant to be a concept for a menu system which would combine the ideas behind the efficient KDE 3.x K Menu and the multi-functional Kickoff while providing visual integration with Plasma.

An explanation of the design:

- Favorite programs use larger icons and are located at the bottom for easy access.

- The folders for programs would operate in a similar manner as the traditional K Menu. To reduce the problem of wide, narrow rows, submenus would appear as close to the mouse cursor as possible without overlapping any text or content.

- Dimmed icons for different categories of the menu (pictured: Places, Recent Files, Information, and Power options) are shown surrounding the user\'s account picture. On mouse or keyboard focus, the relevant icon would be changed to its full brightness.

- On click, category buttons would change the main panel view to correspond with the option selected by the user. The default \"applications and favorites\" view could be restored by typing [Escape] or clicking on the user icon.

- The user\'s icon is shown at the top, along with their username. When hovering over a category icon, this text would change to reflect the content the user has focus on.

- Typing with the menu open would automatically start a search, while the main view could be restored by either clicking on the user icon or pressing [Escape].

Great idea...
I really like this mockup, and I'd wish this implemented as soon as possible..
I don't like kickoff menu, and I think KMenu 3.x needs improvements..
This concept is really nice.. good job dude.

Very nice design. Looks slick, efficient, in line with the KDE4 style, and I especially like the layout of the dock with the menu button as a centre and natural divisor. There is no good reason the menu button must always be in a left corner. I hope this menu will be implemented!

The reason for the button being in the corner is so that you can, "fling" the mouse to the corner and not miss, instead of having to aim precisely with the mouse. I know I make use of that...

I do really like this general look. It's very professional.

- "I'm the normal one, it's everyone else that's odd."
"That's self-contradictory; that would make it normal to be odd, and your being normal makes you odd compared to everyone else."

You know you can put the menu button in the center of your panel in KDE 3 too...

Nice compact idea, I really like this one.The current menu is too big and doesn't have options for unchecking things like recent documents, computer.

Hope someone brings this to reality.

BTW, is the calendar applet in the background also a mockup, if not where can I find it ?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
