Tasty Menu is a K-Menu replacement for KDE 3.x series aiming to provide the maximum usability and flexibility.

It provides three columns where you can always have all your favourite applications in handy.

Key features:
-One column for all your favourite applications and two columns for browsing all the installed programs
-Search engine for the applications
-Optional integration with Kerry Beagle or Strigi
-Highlighting of recently installed applications
-Fast user switching
-Drag and drop support

Debian sid package:
Centos package:
ALT linux x86-64


-builds with newer gcc
-fixed paint glitch with fake transparencies

-fixed a typo in the config dialog

-Now all the applications should be displayed again
-Brazillian portoguese translation by Ewerton de A. Dutra

Very tiny fix:
-fixed the about box
-some fixes in packaging
-now it's installed in the right directory (for example in /usr/lib/kde3 instead of /usr/lib)

-updated French translation
-updated Slovenian translation
-fixed a crash on lright mouse button click on search field
-the old memory leak should be somewhat mitigated

-Fixed a bug that occurred when clicking on the search result if the menu mode was "recent/most used applications"
-Polish translation by Tomasz Argasiński
-Some fixes in the Slovenian translation
-description text shouldn't become too little

-Slovenian translation by Matija Šuklje
-Fixed a little build problem

-Menu and tooltip no longer steals mouse and keyboard input
-Better management of the tooltip
-No separators when the list is in alphabetical order
-Finnish translations by Tommi Nieminen
-Not having particular problems, released it as 1.0
-French translation by Laurent Hilsz

-Rearranging the items of the left column by drag and drop works again
-the layout should be a little bit more polished
-Updated Ukrainian translation

I consider this pretty much feature complete at least for now, so it's the time to approach the fatidical 1.0 :)
-Search field should be a lot faster
-Only strings with at least three characters are being searched (necessary for the speedup)
-Corrected a bug that prevented to search into application descriptions

Ukrainian translation by Motsyo Vitaliy

-"Add to desktop" option in menuitems
-Drag and drop from menu to desktop
-Option to set different icons sizes in the three columns
-the button text label should always be of a visible color
-most used/recently used applications list updates in realtime
-clear most used/recently used applications list
-(warning1: deleting one list deletes also the other)
-(warning2: if you use opensuse you must have kickoff reverted to classic kmenu in order to use the recently used/most used lists)
-updated russian and german translations

another little bugfix release:
-Spanish translation by Jesus S Fernandez Prieto
-button background goes highlighted even if kicker doesn't have neither a background pixmap or transparent background
-menu icon (including on mouseover effect) changes immediately when the user sets a new icon
-highlighted button background also when kicker has no transparency or backgound image
-searching should be a little bit faster (still far from optimal)

-German translation by Jannick Kuhr
-Drag and drop enabled only in "Favourite applications" mode (otherwise it destroys the favourite list!)

-Favourite applications list can be rearranged via drag and drop
-new installed programs notification should be more reliable (some inspiration from Kickoff :P)
-it finds also programs installed by other users
-old programs shouldn't be no more erroneusly listed
-updated russian and italian translations
-when there is only one search result, pressing enter executes it (and the search terms are cleared)
-added button to clear the recent documents list
-application descriptions can be removed also from the left column
-easier to start a program with a single mouse click when the tree is collapsed
-groups with only one item can be configured to be shown
-items can be ordered alphabetically (with applications after the groups)
-better managing of the button size (especially within a vertical panel) and when the menu text is disabled the button is exactly square
-the button icon is highlighted on mouse over according to the global settins
-in the search results the tree is always open

-Russian translation by Yurkovsky Andrey
-corrected a possible compilation problem
-application descriptions are hidden also from the first column
-button width updated again when the text label is turned off

-configurable button text label
-configurable menu button pixmap
-item descriptions can be turned off
-optional "save session" entry under the user button
-configurable popup text
-the button no longer appears on mouse over, instead the background becomes lighter on mouse over and darker on mouse press
-when the user clicks on an empty area the last item is no longer activated
-Italian translation

 keeps on blinking

Tasty menu is certainly the best kde menu in my opinion, far from the default one and better than kickoff. I really love it. Nonetheless, I have noticed a really irritating feature: it keeps on blinking very often. Could this be fixed ?
My system : opensuse 11.0 + kde 3.5.10 + tastymenu 1.07.
Thanks for all.

Do you have a fully transparent kicker? Try coloring the kicker a little - does tastymenu still blink? Mine doesn't.

Want Debian Sid with spices? Get sidux at sidux.com - it simply works :)

 More on flickering

 by drautzburg on: Jan 1 2009

On my sytem (debian, using kde 3.5.9), there is another strange effect, which gomes and goes with flickering:

when I type in a search, the search results appear after the 3rd letter (I believe this is what is intended), but after about half a second they disappear again and I am left with an empty list of search results.

The behavior seems to be the same with 1.0.6 from debian and 1.0.7 compiled by myself. (BTW the 1.0.7 version claims it is a 1.0.6 - small glitch).

Now at least with my self-compiled version the problem seems to disappear when I check "override alt+F1.." in the "Configure" dialog. I even reset the Shortcut via "Configure Global Shortcuts" to Ctrl+Space while leaving the Alt+F1 option checked. Still no flicker, no disappearing search results and Ctrl+Space brings up tastymenu. I havent tried this with the precompiled version though (I deinstalled it).

I tried this a couple of times back and forth and the behavior was consistent, i.e. unchecked->trouble, checked->no trouble. Still I am not sure if this is really a workaround. The flickering had been gone before and reappeared out of nowhere, so maybe tomorrow it'll be back.

But the fact that search results disappear when flickering is on, was very consistent in the past.

Maybe this rings some bells?


I also took the liberty to remap the return key so it clears the search text, rather than launching a program in case there is only one search result. This way (and with Ctrl+Space launching tastymenu) I can operate tastymenu more easily from the keyboard.

346 return false;
348 // DTZ
349 menu->searchLine->clear();
350 return true;
352 QListViewItem *listItem = NULL;

Some more observations:

After typing in a search and the results being displayed, I close tastymenu. When I start it again, I see it in the state I left it, i.e. the search string is still visible and so are the search results. Good.

However when I actually launch anything, the next time I pop up tastymenu, it stills shows the search string, but no search results, which is inconsistent. Those search results seem to be quite fragile.

Another thing I noticed, is that just hovering the mouse over a category in the middle panel brings up this category in the right panel. No big deal, but confusing. I would have expected that this takes a click. Likewise in the left panel (search results). Hovering the mouse over a section heading collapses or uncollapses the items below.

My feeling is that tastymenu processses events it should really ignore.

 Background / XF86menuKB

 by pierat on: May 24 2009

Tasty is great, but there are two things I haven't found out yet:

1. Can I set the background to something else then plain white?

2. There are some extra key on my keyboard. How can assign the key XF86menuKB (keycode 168) to open Tasty?

 Kicker on right screen side

I think I found a small bug: when you place the kicker panel on the right side of the screen, you can't place Tasty on the button of the panel, because it will open the menu downwards, outside the screen.

Sorry: I just confused left/right. (Must be getting older...)

I meant the left screen side. But the effekt stays the same: Tasty opens the menu downwards, outside the screen, when you place it at the bottom of the kicker panel.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
