Description:

K Menu with Gnome folder and extra icons for KDE 3.2 or later.

If you install both KDE and Gnome then K Menu will become a mess with overpopulated submenus. Some distributions try to solve this by hiding many Gnome apps in KDE and most KDE apps in Gnome. I do not like that. I want to access Gnome apps in KDE and KDE apps in Gnome. So this is my attempt to both maintain desktop interoperability and unmess the menus.

Why should one install both KDE and Gnome at all? You might share your machine with somebody who prefers the other desktop, or you might be a desktop junky like I am.

To download it, fedora users:
# yum install kmenu-gnome

This applies for fedora users.

How to recover the old menu?? I did the following but couldn't get to have the old menu:


1. rpm -e kmenu-gnome
2. rpm -e --nodeps kdelibs
3. yum -y install kdelibs


but no success :-(

Please let me know a way!!

K Menu is not always refreshed immediately but there is trick to speed it up by running 'kcmshell icons'. Highlight an alternative icon theme then go back to the icon theme you are using and click on the Apply button.

Thanks for the trick. This is going to be quite useful in future..indeed :-)

I installed it and have to say it is a very good idea. However, it changed all my submenus. It would be nice if you could add this gnome submneu, without changing the original k-menu.

Yes, it does a little bit more. Heavily biased towards KDE ;-), K Menu Gnome puts apps that require neither KDE, not Gnome into $CATEGORY/More. E.g. Kopete is listed in Internet but Gaim, its GTK alternative, is listed in Internet/More.
