Description:

This is my proposal for a new KMenu. I find the previous ones excellent and you can see how I copied some of the elements in each (I hope no one is offended). However, I find that the Windows XP start menu is a little too busy and the current KMenu is falling behind in the eyecandy business. My proposal calls for a menu with one column of options. It also allows for theme designers to theme the KMenu the same as their window decorations and styles. I feel it should all be integrated. Isn't this what KDE is about? Allowing for themes and not a standard look that is best for all. I feel that this is the easiest proposal to implement based on current KDE GUI practices.

I added a second screenshot which kind of shows a translucent effect. I haven't had time to make it look perfect, but hopefully you get the idea.

Due to complaints, I have updated it to hug the screen edge. Also, I have eliminated the large buttons at the bottom. Those who said they were too large are right.

Let me know what you think about the integrated run command. I for one would find such a feature useful.

People talk about "innovation." How would making the menu like XP make it innovative? Also, what about Kroupware? I think that a second menu should be built to support the mail and scheduling. In the future, I will provide a screenshot of what I am describing. Also, what purpose does the time in the KMenu serve? Of course it should be an option under an applet system (as seen in the most recent screenshots). However, I see no purpose for items that are currently in the kicker.

I liked the look of this one better (the color of the selected item and the way the submenu comes of out it, great !):

Can't you mix both of them ?

would be cool to se a launcher in the menu
(first screenshot)
to be innovative, i think icons, which are most used should be bigger, than others!
i don't no if one should change their order but size is ok.

 More innovation ;)

I'm glad that there are people who want a new start menu, however, I think it needs more innovation. I mean this is the same menu with more/different graphics.

What I want is more functionality. The menu is very messy, it would be helpful if it could be grouped better, maybe a couple of main categories, and I like the two-column part of the XP menu. ^_^

 graphics

rendering common elements of the desktop really needs to be kept in the widget style IMHO. this will keep things looking and working consistently. this means largely sticking to already existing widgets.

you are correct that many of the pseudoscreenshots so far mostly consist of new graphic treatments of the menu. such a graphical facelift should be handled by the widget theme.

there is a link to some work that i started during 3.1 and will finish for 3.2 ... i put it aside for 3.2 to take care of more pressing issues for 3.1 ...

the source and screenshot are a bit old. i've got some slightly newer work on my HD at home.

the design is not meant to create a new popup menu widget (how will it look consistent with the given style, otherwise) but there is quite a bit of graphic design to be done on it. the focus is REAL usability and functionality.

A change of layout and style of the existent kde menu is welcome :). and imho this one is cute and more usable tan the default. However ... (ahem)

However, i think a menu should be built based on "less clicks and mouse movement for common applications/groups". As Eugenia mentioned in her reviews, most menus look cluttered and some have multiple entries for the same thing. Therefore, i dont think it's worth just adding plugins in the menu and a nice frame. Probly a redesign... any volunteers.. :) ?

The screenshots look really nice. But I'm not sure about the baloon style in a menu. It gives the feeling of a (really big) tooltip :) That;s why i'd go for a "Dynamic menu" style. The frame circleing the parent entry and the submenu looks cool and is probably quite easy to implement. although i'd be curious to see a concept on small fonts (let's say 11pt) and left-right nested cascades..

in conclusion: new menu for kde? definately, but not just for the sake of eyecandy.

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
