Tasty Menu

Submitted:  Jul 2 2006
Updated:  Dec 13 2007


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

 Great idea, but...

 by dasein on: Oct 25 2007

In a previous posting, I complimented Tasty Menu on both theory and implementation.

I still think it's a great idea, but have found a couple of implementation issues in v1.03 that render it nearly useless.

The first is admittedly an annoyance, but it's a constant annoyance. The kicker icon-and-text "flash" at seemingly random intervals. It's impossible not to be distracted by it.

The second issue is even more troublesome. There *seems* to be some sort of mondo memory leak happening. The very first time that I had Tasty running overnight, I woke up to find that *something* had eaten nearly 2GB of RAM. One naturally suspects the most recently installed app, right? So I uninstalled Tasty, and the problem disappeared. (I'm running Mandriva 2008, BTW, 64-bit.)

I hope these issues can be resolved, because I still think Tasty is a damn fine idea.

 memory leak

I have discovered the reason regarding the kicker problem.
Tasty Menu eats all of my phisical memory, 1 GB, plus 1.4 GB swap.
Debian ETCH, but it must be reproducable on other systems.

Yep, I'm running Mandriva 2008 Free, 32-bit, and have this problem too.

i think i've found the point where the leak occurs...
i'm starting to think it must be a problem in kdelibs... i don't think i will be able to totally remove it, but i think i've found a way to drastically limit it

It at least have been drastically removed. with 1.0.3 I couldn't run kicker with tastymenu for a day without having kicker eat up all my memory.

With 1.0.4 it has now been running for days and doesn't really show up in top.

Maybe it is time to try get it into debian proper.

First, thank you for this very useful application!

I have some wishes:
1. It would be good, when the search box is cleaned every time I open tasty menu.
At this time, I have to clean the box every time, before I can search for an application.
2. would be great to be able to set the start position of the window. When the start button is positioned on the right side of the kicker, the menu is cutted on the right wall of my desktop. See my screenshot on http://www.ruinelli.ch/downloads2/tasty_menu.png

I can't seem to find the sources for buttons.h (it is generated by some pics according to create_buttons.sh, but these pics aren't shipped. And uic doesn't generate endian-safe files (so powerpc builds will be kind of screwed up here)

All the files generated from the .ui files does also seem to be already in the tarball and not regenerated on build time - isn't that also a problem?

- who is considering making official debian packages

I hacked the build system to get buttons.h built at build time instead of using a preshipped one.

- and tastymenu is now on its way into debian unstable.

 strange about box

I've just installed 1.0.4 - the about box looks a little peculiar, some text isn't readable:
And it's not only in the german translation.

 some apps missing

Hello :)
I discovered that in version 1.0.4 icons of KColorEdit and KRuler in Graphics disappeared. At the same time, those icons are avaliable in classic K menu and when I install TastyMenu 1.0.3 everything works fine too :)
I also noticed that Karbon14 is now both in Office and Graphics, while in Kicker Menu and Tasty 1.0.3 it appears only in Office.
I'm using Kubuntu 7.10 i386 with all avaliable updates.
Greetings :)

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.
