Description:

Simple Menu is an intentionally minimal launcher widget for Plasma 5. Powered by the same powerful backend as Plasma 5's bundled launchers, its UI is similar to the fullscreen Application Dashboard, just in a small, floating window. In addition to the application grid and filtering, it supports favorites, search and basic system actions.

NOTE: Simple Menu requires Plasma version 5.9 or higher and KDE Frameworks version 5.34 or higher.
Last changelog:

Changes in v1.0.12 2 years ago

* Menu entries are now always sorted alphabetically. On future Plasma releases this will include the category list on the right of Simple Menu.
* The search field now has a placeholder text.

Could you explain what side margins you want to remove and why?

that's why: Looks like a piece of crap. at least option should be left in the settings.
In the same way, an option can be added to hide the logout button and others. and Must be included in the full screen option.
You can also add an animation for transitions between the application pages.

I was asking to understand what margins you even mean - but you decided to be aggressive and mean for some reason. Huh.

Maybe I'm dumb, but I really can't figure out which margins you mean o_O
Yep, about the possibility to hide some buttons - that's right, but everything else ... What does that mean?

Hi! Can you add mod with 6*6 or 6*8 grid? That will be more usable on portrait screens.

Or maybe a values in config to manualy set size of grid...

I've hacked the code a bit to get 4x4. There are about 4 places to alter, but it's always hard to remember which. I skip minor updates, so I won't have to do it often.

Maybe I could just rotate when the screen is?

Nope, i dont think that's a good idea. Now it fits perfectly by wide, but i think it will be more productively increase a grid size for show more apps at the same time.

Thank you for the update, is there a way to lock the menu to only change on click? I realize this last update was probably to quickly fix the crash.

Sorry, could you explain what you mean with "is there a way to lock the menu to only change on click"?

I think he's talking about how the categories change on mouse-over. The Application Launcher (Kickoff) has an option to enable/disable switching tabs on hover.

I'm not the one who was asking for the feature, but it is nice to have. I really appreciate this menu though. It's so quick and easy to navigate.

Is there a better place than this comments section to report bugs?

Currently there isn't any, sorry. Once I find the time I want to put Simple Menu through kdereview and make it a proper KDE project, then it will receive a product category on the KDE bug tracker.

Could you add option to disable floating mode and set offset to 0?

I'd prefer not to add options that change the design a lot (better to make a seperate widget).

Changes in v1.0.12 2 years ago

* Menu entries are now always sorted alphabetically. On future Plasma releases this will include the category list on the right of Simple Menu.
* The search field now has a placeholder text.

Changes in v1.0.11 2 years ago

* Launching apps by touchscreen tap now works.
* An item's highlight decoration now stays in place when opening its context menu.
* Resource usage optimizations for an even faster and lighter menu.
* Minor bugfixes.

Changes in v1.0.10 2 years ago

* Fixed "Add to Favorites" not working as of v1.0.8.

Changes in v1.0.9 2 years ago

* Fixed a bug causing system action buttons to stay highlighted when the mouse pointer leaves the area.

Changes in v1.0.8 2 years ago

* Made switching categories by hovering them optional. You can now turn it off in the settings.
* Custom panel button images now work better. They're smoothly scaled, and square images are automatically rounded to crisp sizes just like normal icons are.
* The UI for setting custom button images now uses the regular icon picker dialog (it supports custom images in recent releases of the KDE Frameworks libraries) and you can also set a custom button image by just dropping it on the config area.
* Speed optimizations to make the menu open faster and speed up switching of categories.
* Fixed hovering a menu item interfering with arrow keyboard navigation on newer versions of Qt.

Changes in v1.0.7 2 years ago

* Fixed arrow navigation through the search results after entering search terms not working.
* Improved arrow navigation while searching: Previously, it was necessary to arrow down into the results after entering search terms before horizontal arrow navigation through the search results would work. This was changed, so that e.g. arrow right will now immediately move to the second search result, for a more friction-free search and launch experience.
* Tab and Shift+Tab can now be used to cycle through the search field, the system favorites (Shutdown & co) and the category list.

Changes in v1.0.6 2 years ago

* Fixed triggering context menu actions.

Changes in v1.0.5 2 years ago

* Speed optimizations to open the menu faster.

Changes in v1.0.4 3 years ago

* Fixed menu appearing on the wrong monitor in multi-monitor setups.
* Fixed crash when opening the context menu for search result items.

Changes in v1.0.3 3 years ago

* Fix favorites on Plasma 5.11 and support the new globally shared favorites and unique per-activity favorites.

Changes in v1.0.2 3 years ago

* Made sure initial arrow key press always selects first item.
* Polished search experience: First search result is selected while searching, no longer requiring extra key presses to launch.
* Fixed auto-hide panels not staying open while Simple Menu is open.
* Support for the panel icon size hint in Frameworks 5, prevents panel icon getting too large in wide panels.
* Fixed panel icon missing mouseover highlight effect.
* Now requiring KDE Frameworks v5.34.
