Description:

This plasmoid shows a menu of the installed applications, similar to Lancelot but much simpler. The purpose of the simpleness is to have a faster plasmoid which also loads faster. The plasmoid also has a list of favorites and you can search applications by application name. There are "Lock Session", "Leave" and "Switch User" and other similar buttons. Other features:
- the number of visible columns can be changed (between 1 and 4);
- the favorites section can be hidden;
- the favorites list can be locked;
- the size of all visible icons can be changed;
- closing and opening the menu remembers its state (configurable);
- change launcher icon;
- configure which "leave" buttons are shown (or show none at all);
- the favorites list can be reordered using drag-and-drop;
- the menu items can be dragged and dropping them on a panel or on the desktop creates a shortcut there.

The plasmoid can be completely manipulated with the keyboard only except for the buttons at the bottom wich must be clicked with the mouse. The menu can be browsed with the arrow keys and PageUp and PageDown, a favorite can be added with the + or = key and removed with the - key, to search an application by its name, just start typing the name.

This plasmoid is entirely written in QML + JavaScript.

Note: this plasmoid requires KDE 4.8.0 or higher. For correct resizing of the "Leave" buttons, KDE 4.9.0 is required.

Bugs I don't have control over (because of limitations in Qt or Plasma):
- make configuring the plasmoid's icon more elegant by showing the current icon on the button that launches the "Change icon" dialog and by removing the text field holding the icon's name (only possible when KConfigXT finally supports Icon)
- provide a command line to open/close the menu
- maybe add "Recent Documents" section (below Favorites?); there is no Plasma DataEngine for this, so I cannot do it
- allow to modify the ordering of the "leave" buttons (must find a way in
KConfig XT to do this)




Changelog:

version 1.6 (2013-07-31):
- do not show the "Add favorite" and "Remove favorite" buttons in the search menu when the favorites are locked
- the "Add Favorite" and "Remove Favorite" buttons are not visible anymore if the favorites section is hidden
- dragging an application from the menu to the panel or the desktop creates a shortcut there
- the favorites can be reordered using drag-and-drop

 Difficulty to add or remove favorites

 
 by sylvainsjc on: May 20 2012

Opensuse 12.1 KDE 4.8.3 on desktop - keybord FR

I see the need to use + or = to add and - to remove but it does not work.

I succeded with Dolphin but I am unable to remove it now from favorites: (

An idea ?

You can also add and remove favorites with the mouse. Move the mouse cursor to the right side of the menu item. If the item is not yet in the favorites, an "Add favorite" icon will appear. Clicking on it adds the item to the favorites. If the item is already in the favorites (this also holds for any item in the Favorites menu itself), a "Remove favorite" icon will appear (in the Favorites menu also a "Move favorite up" and "Move favorite down" icon appear if there is more than one favorite). Clicking it removes the item from the Favorites list.

In any distro that doesn't mess with KDE (such as Arch Linux) the menu itself is focused when you open it, so you are also able to use the +, = and - keys. You can see that the menu is focused when the search field is focused. If, when you open the menu, the search field is not focused, then focus it by clicking in it. Then you will be able to use the keys to browse the menus, add and remove favorites. Also don't forget to submit a bug report to your distro that the popups of the plasmoids should receive focus each time they are shown.

It's Ok. because I use a 24" screen, I hadn't seen that there were options on the right side of each application and I was looking rather to slide or use the right click

Thank you, it's a great job

This has been discussed again and again in the comments. IIRC this is the fourth time that I have to answer this question. So go reading the previous comments.

tl;dr
STOP USING BROKEN PLASMA THEMES!
Non-broken themes include (but are not necessarily limited to) air, glassified, produkt.

Not sure what you mean here. If you mean that there should be a page with "Home", "Trash", ... like in Kickoff, then that is not going to happen. The purpose of this plasmoid is not to have a Kickoff clone, but to have a simple, usable application launcher. You can always add Dolphin to the Favorites, then you will have easy access to your home directory.

No need to read 6 pages of comments for this, reading the comments on the current page is sufficient to see the answer to this question.

 Git repository?

 
 by ArthurTaborda on: Jul 4 2012

First I would like to thank you for this amazing plasmoid. I am now studying QML and this is helping me a lot. I took the source code unzipping the .plasmoid file, but it would be nice if it had a git repository to send some fixes if I find any... And I am also interested in provide translation for portuguese and spanish.

If you have modifications to the plasmoid, you can send the modified plasmoid by email to me, then I will merge the modifications myself. If I see that you contribute regularly, then I will setup a git repository somewhere, but currently I do not see the need for that. It would be nice if you could provide the Spanish and Portuguese translations, please read the file README_TRANSLATIONS.txt which is included in the plasmoid file (which is actually a zip-file with extension .plasmoid).

Git helps a lot in open source projects like Appmenu. If just one person is developing, I agree that git is not very necessary, but in a case of a open source project that a larger number of developers want to help, a git repository is very helpful. It's easier to just make a pull request than compiling, find your email (I didn't find), send via email and wait for reply.

I dit the translation already, I need your email to send :)

If you add the plasmoid to a panel or to the desktop using the GUI and in that GUI hover the icon of the plasmoid, then you will see my email address. It is also in the README_TRANSLATIONS.txt file that I told you to read. It is also in README, metadata.desktop, the .js file, the French .po file and most .qml files. The command "grep -r @ ." also helps.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
