K Menu Gnome (source)

Description:

This project is officially discontinued. Only kept for the record.

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

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 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.

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

K Menu Gnome is not compatible with the menus of heavily customized distributions such as SUSE, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, or UHU-Linux.


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




Changelog:

Release 1.2.3

* Excluded CantorPart from Lost & Found
* Excluded fedora-lxappearance.desktop from Settings
* Emptied Electronics directory in fedora-administration.patch to avoid conflict with FEL electronics-menu
* Updated/added Arabic, Assamese, Bengali, Breton, Chhattisgarhi, Crimean Tatar, Dhivehi, Dutch, Galician, Guarani, Hausa, Hindi, Icelandic, Igbo, Indonesian, Italian, Latvian, Low Saxon, Marathi, Punjabi, Romanian, Serbian, Sinhalese & Yoruba translations

It will be fixed in the next release. Meanwhile here is a workaround for Kubuntu:

sudo su -
cd /etc/xdg/menus
ln -s applications-merged kde4-applications-merged

There are no GNOME apps on the Kubuntu live cd, so you might want to create a fake launcher:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=GNOME Placeholder
Exec=kwrite
Icon=emacs
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;Utility;

Save it as gnome-placeholder.desktop and copy it into /usr/share/applications. Log out and log in again.

 Gnome Menu KDE?

 
 by clydejsn on: Apr 22 2008

I have a Gnome desktop w/some KDE programs with the same menu bar clutter. Is there a reversal that would add a KDE section as opposed to Gnome?

 Broken KDE4 menu icons

 
 by simontol on: Jul 30 2008

Once installed I have broken icons in my KDE4 menu.
How can I restore old menu?
I've tried to uninstall the package but doesn't work...
I've also tried to remove the menu and add it again to the panel and to rm -rf ~/.kde4

Did you use kmenuedit?
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=714095

Looking around in ~/.config/menus and moving all the files and subdirectories from there into a backup directory might help.

You may as well look into ~/.local/share/applications and move all the *.desktop files out into a backup directory.

Log out and log in again.

 Gentoo

It should but you will need to do it manually:

1. Find the xdg/menus directory used by KDE. When I last used Gentoo, it was in /usr/kde/3.5/etc/xdg/menus but now it may be elsewhere.

2. See if KDE's xdg/menus directory has an applications-merged subdirectory and copy the kmenu-gnome.menu file from the kmenu-gnome-1.0.0/xdg folder into it. If there is no such subdirectory there then create it. (Some distributors use kde-applications-merged or kde4-applications-merged instead of plain applications-merged.)

3. Copy the *.directory files from kmenu-gnome-1.0.0/desktop-directories into KDE's desktop-directories folder. When I last used Gentoo, it was in /usr/kde/3.5/share/desktop-directories but now it may be elsewhere.

4. If you are using KDE3 then copy all the icons into KDE3's icons directory. If you are using KDE4 then you only need to copy the hicolor icons.

5. Copy the kmenu-gnome subdirectory (only the subdirectory, not the whole kmenu-gnome-1.0.0 directory) into /usr/share.

KDE4 may be slow to update the menu. Restart X or reboot the computer to speed it up.

I have just tested it with Sabayon 4.1:

tar -xzf *kmenu-gnome-1.0.0.tar.gz
sudo su
cp -r kmenu-gnome-1.0.0/icons/hicolor /usr/share/icons
# Regenerate icon caches:
rm -rf /var/tmp/kdecache-*/kpc
# Create directory:
mkdir -p /usr/kde/4.2/etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged
cp kmenu-gnome-1.0.0/xdg/kmenu-gnome.menu \
/usr/kde/4.2/etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged
cp -r kmenu-gnome-1.0.0/desktop-directories /usr/share
cp -r kmenu-gnome-1.0.0/kmenu-gnome /usr/share

Log out and log in again.

I followed your guide and it worked.
I have KDE 4.2 and the directories were simply /usr/share/desktop-directories and /etc/xdg/menus

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
