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.

 add a drop shadow

And I'd like to see a strong optional drop-shadow for the start menu. Yes I know that KDE 3.1 will have drop shadows for the menu, but what about a stronger drop shadow for the start menu? What do people think?

 Re: integrated Run..

If you did integrate the "run command", it would have to be optional. I really like such things as the icon that reflects what you type in, and the advanced options in minicli (the current run command box.)

 AA Fonts

How did you get those AA fonts on KDE? The ones that KDE has now look ugly. GNOME2's were like that as well, but apparently RH has patched their GNOME, so you can optimize AA for laptop displays, etc...

 I like the idea.....

The title at the top, IMHO, should be
filled with information that is useful
like user name(login level), RAM
available, Linux kernal version, KDE
version, date. That way it's kind a
quickie referance area. Then have
last used apps, if you need that, I,
personally, don't use that feature.

Then nice organized (properly) menus
with sub menus. One of my biggest
gripes about KDE is that the menus are
so disorganized. Graphics belong to
their own catagory, Multimedia is
Sound and Vision stuff, not Artistic
stuff. There are too many areas in
the menus system that are out of
whack to put here.

Your idea is wonderful and I agree
that the menu should be intergrated
into the "look and feel" of KDE. It's
an area that Windows, before XP, had
left out of themes.

Just my 0.02 cents......

 one thought

It looks great, out of all the ones I've seen on kde-look.org recently this is by far the most effective.
One question, can we get some code down so that it can be used. I really like the run feature builtin to the menu. I would like very much to see this be distributed.

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.
