If you are using or used or care about KBFX , We are sure, you are wondering about the progress KBFX. We haven't forgotten you or the project. We will add some most requested features to KBFX
and 100's of bug fixes reported on our bug tracker and release KBFX for KDE3 as soon as we can,

For KDE4 we will use the Raptor-menu Menu engine, the interface nookie has designed this time is really a NextGen, unbeatable and breath taking. so stay tuned for that. so we will fist finish raptor menu engine (http://www.raptor-menu.org) then move on to KBFX for KDE4.

We are also doing PlexyDesk, I'll add a project entry after I make this posting . PlexyDesk is a
modular desktop render. PlexyDesk will introduce a new and an effective way to use your desktop, yet keep the classic metaphor intact.visit us at http://www.plexydesk.org or #plexydesk at
freenode , we would like to hear from you

Thank you.

KBFX is an alternative to the classical K-Menu button and it's menu.
It improves the user experience by enabling the user to set a bigger (and thus more visible) start button and by finally replacing the Win95-like K-Menu.
But if you still want the old menu, because you're used to it, it is still available as an option in KBFX.
We recommend, however, that you give the Spinx bar a try.

Hi all,
KBFX now has been moved to KDE Extragear.
Expect a lot more new features in our next release for KDE3.
In the meantime we are coding KBFX for KDE4 too, so we are a bit busy now.
But that DOES NOT mean that we won't support you and the KDE3 version.
Very soon we will implement the keyboard shortcuts support in KBFX....
Just stay tuned ;)

Love you all ;) :-*

PhobosK and the KBFX Team

"KBFX Silk" (

Hello everyone,

After a long silence from us now we are happy to announce that finally the
stable release of KBFX is ready.
We made a lot of changes to the KBFX Configurator and to KBFX Menu itself.
However we were not able to implement everything you proposed and everything we
wanted. So some of the features (see the TODO list in the source files)
in "KBFX Silk" ( are still not ready. We are sure that they will
present in the next stable release which will be due just after KDE4 is
released. The menu itself, however, is fully functional.

Thanks to all of you who gave us ideas and who tested the prerelease versions of

When you download and install this version you may report the found bugs at
http://bugs.kbfx.net or in an email to phobosk(at)mail.kbfx.net

We wait for your opinion and reports.

Take a look at the renewed sections "How To?" of kbfx.net:

We advise all the KBFX theme authors to have a look at the article "How to
create themes for" at http://www.kbfx.net/staticpages/index.php?page=howto0493
in order to transform their themes from the old format to the new one ;)
And look at all the documents in the doc folder of the sources.
For additional help on install see here:

All the best from your KBFX Team. :)

P.S. Soon we will release the highest rated on Kde-Look KBFX themes as a package containing 20 themes. We just wait for their authors to transform them into the new theme specs.

Note: Things to be considered before installing "KBFX Silk"

1.) To configure and compile "KBFX Silk" you need Cmake >= 2.4.2 from http://www.cmake.org

2.) To configure, compile and install "KBFX Silk" simply run ./build.sh

3.) Before the install of "KBFX Silk", please unload and uninstall any previous version of KBFX.

4.) After the install of "KBFX Silk" please relogin KDE.

5.) If you need file searching capabilities in KBFX, please download and install Strigi
from http://strigi.sf.net

6.) To enable Strigi support in KBFX, please pass "--strigi" OR "-s" option to build.sh
i.e: ./build.sh --strigi

2.) User's Guide http://www.kbfx.net/siraj/KBFXslik.pdf
3.) Strigi Install Guide http://www.kbfx.net/siraj/strigi.pdf


The Skin Spec for KBFX Silk has undergone radical changes!
Many of the themes on kde-look.org might not work!
We encourage theme authors to update their skins or make new ones.
For help on that see here:

Thank you.

 where am I

 by janet on: Feb 5 2007

Is there a way that the kbfx menu can show the user where he is in the menu? Something like a progress bar or percentage? I just looked a the typical Debian submenu all Debian based distributions have which holds *all* installed applications (in submenus - but in kbfx in a long long long scroll list) and wondered how long I still have to scroll... For those long menus it also would be very convenient to have a slider the user could grab with the mouse to quickly go to far away places in the scoll list - just like the browser scrollbar sliders for websites.

And now I'll be quiet for the moment ;).

Want excellent hardware recognition? Get KANOTIX! Also want an easy way to install Debian Sid? Get SIDUX :)

Never thought about that... well maybe will be a good idea... I've just added it to the TODO list of KBFX.
Thanks for the proposal

You don't mention what distro you use but your problem is that you have to install the development packages of KDE - that means usually libkde dev and kdecore dev. Anyway the names depend on the distro

No, I haven't compiled it with strigi support unless it was done automatically. Nevertheless "Ctrl-Alt-S" clears the menu instead of launching the program I have assigned to that shortcut.

I hope this shortcut for strigi will be customizable because I don't want to change my shortcuts.

I'm using Slackware 11, and I have compiled and installed succesfully current version of kbfx. When I apply changes, nothing happens, except the taskbar (kicker) dissapears for a second.
After that the old kmenu is still present.
Version of KDE is 3.5.4

Usually the problem is that you have not added the KBFX applet to the pannel you want. KBFX is a kicker applet like "Clock", "Lock and Logout buttons" etc. so before you see any change you need to add KBFX to the pannel by right clicking on the pannel and selecting "Add applet to panel"

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.
