Thread: KDE Application Bar

  1. #1

    KDE Application Bar

    On the KDE application bar (kind of like Windows Start Menu), is there a way to customize the text displayed, and the order that items are shown? i.e. instead of showing 'WWW', is there a way to get it to show 'Internet Applications'? Thanks!

    Yes, there is a menu editor in kde. It should be listed on your KDE menu. I think the executable is kmenuedit. I am not a KDE user though, so I am not sure there.

    One of the KDE users around here will know. Everyone seems to be on vacation today.

    Yeah, you would think that folks were on vacation when it took around 9 hours for the first person to read the topic. I was quite surprised! So, kmenuedit...I will give that a try. I am just really being anal. I figure that since I don't know enough to do the video capture stuff on Linux, I may as well learn something piddly to pass the time!

    You said that you are not a KDE user... is there any reason for that? I am not yet sure what the differences are. I was under the impression that they were just different environments, like windows desktops or something. Do they have different apps? Does one run faster or...?

    Re:KDE Application Bar

    I prefer Gnome. Been using it since it's early beta days. Just a personal preference I happen to like it better then KDE.

    From the most part KDE apps will run under Gnome and Gnome apps will run under KDE. Although I don't use KDE apps at all. The "toolkits" use to write KDE and Gnome apps differ. KDE uses QT. Gnome uses GTK2.

    A lot of differences really.....

    i like KDE, and like JimH said, it is all personal preference. i initially found it easier, and nicer to look at than gnome. customize customize customize. I also use Enlightenment, which is pretty cool too :P
