KDesktop Menu


KDE Improvement

KDesktop Menu

KDesktop Menu

KDesktop Menu

Link:  http://
Minimum required   KDE 3.5.x
Downloads:  5671
Submitted:  Apr 3 2005
Updated:  Jul 10 2006


KDesktop Menu is a replacement menu for use with kicker (KDE). It was inspired
from the Gnome menu applet.... heavily.

- KDE 3.5
- QT 3.3


su -c "make install"


Please read the TODO file for information of planned features as well as my requests for comments on suggested features.


Currently a bug exists when KDeskopMenu is placed horizontally on the bottom of the bar. On first click, the menu pops up at an incorrect position.

If it crashes, configure with --enable-debug=full and then start kicker in konsole.


0.3 - July 09, 2006
ADD: Display the KDM user face icon where the "Switch User" icon is displayed.
ADD: Storage Media expands to show all in media:/ (Filters out hdd/nfs/smb)
(rossoft, kde-look.org)
CHG: Make the Switch User information more human readable.
FIX: Crash bug when trying to edit the menu in certain instances
FIX: Make compile and work with KDE 3.5.X

0.2.1 - June 05, 2005
FIX: Applet crashed on start when the kicker session was brand new.
CHG: Re-created the build system files in hopes of solving the undefined
macros problem

0.2 - May 30, 2005
ADD: Actions and Desktop menu's contents mostly configurable.
ADD: Actions Menu now uses all possible menu extentions.
ADD: KMenu icon can now be disabled.
CHG: Remove need for KInstance in About stuff...
CHG: Reworked the class inheritance to speed up compilation.
FIX: The location of the menubar on a bottom horizontal panel.
FIX: Minor bugs were fixed.
FIX: User Switching wasn't working when 2+ sessions were already started
FIX: Many code clean ups.

0.1.2 - Apr. 03, 2005
FIX: Infinite loop caused if the user has disabled the Side pixmap in
kickerrc. What a typo heh

0.1.1 - Apr. 02, 2005
ADD: More includes and debug statements, looking for the cause of a crash.

0.1 - Apr. 02, 2005
Initial release.

 No other options

This is definitely the greatest improvement I have found on this site. It made me love KDE again and stop thinking about gnome!

Still, I have a problem. I feel that I don't have all of the options enabled in my Kubuntu Edgy. In actions, I can only find "switch user" "save session" "lock session" and "logout", while in the Desktop menu, "Personal folder" which doesn't work, "Documents" which opens my home folder and "Media".

Have I done something wrong during compilation?

Keep up the good work!

 How to start

Everything seemed to compile OK, but I can't figure out how to launch the new menu bar. Forgive me if I missed something obvious.

I got the same problem here.
Did you discover how to launch it?

Hmm, I had to install libkonq4-dev in order to compile it, but then it was only a matter of adding the "KDesktop Menu" applet to Kicker.

Quitting wastes efforts.

 icon instead of text

 by janet on: Mar 25 2007
Score 50%

Is there a way to replace the text with icons? It really does not look good on huge kickers (mine has a heigth of 72) and takes up too much width.

Want an easy way to install Debian Sid? Get sidux :)

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.
