-------------------------------------

K Menu with Gnome folder and extra icons for Slackware 12 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 be sharing your machine with somebody who prefers the other desktop, or you might be a desktop junky like I am.

Menu Structure

KDE apps are left where they are. GNOME apps are moved into Gnome. Applications that require neither KDE, nor GNOME are moved into $CATEGORY/More.

Installation:

1. Save as kmenu-gnome-1.2.3-noarch-12.tgz
2. installpkg kmenu-gnome-1.2.3-noarch-12.tgz
3. Restart X and run kappfinder to update the K Menu.

Known Issues

K Menu Gnome only works as expected with an unmodified K Menu. If you have already edited your menu with KMenuEdit or added Windows applications to the menu with Wine/Crossover/Cedega then you should only install K Menu Gnome if you know how to handle menu customization conflicts. Per-user menu customizations are stored in ~/.config/menus.

Disclaimer

This is not compatible with Zenwalk. To build a Zenwalk package, grab the source and run make-zenwalk-package.sh.


I am no longer a desktop junky so this is the last release of K Menu Gnome. It was fun while it lasted.

First of all thanx for this. This sounds great.
I don't see the gnome dir in KDE though.
I have Slackware 11.0 with FreeRock Gnome 2.14.3.
If anyone has had the same problem I would appreciate some help as I'm new to linux.
Thanx in advance.

Freerock Gnome installs its applications.menu into /etc/xdg/menus, which overrides KDE's /opt/kde/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu. K Menu Gnome fixes this but you need to run kappfinder after you have installed kmenu-gnome.
