Description:

Lancelot is an ALI (application launcher interface) for KDE 4 designed to provide a place from which all your jobs begin. It provides quick access to applications, places, documents, contacts and system information.

It is a part of KDE since 4.2, so you should have it in your distribution's package repository. It should be in kdeplasma-addons package.

You should contact the author of the package. liblancelot should be included in the package like it is in the code repository. There is a possibility that the package maker have separated lib from app though.

 big+small icons looks confusin

 
 by maarizwan on: Sep 11 2008

my friend Mr. Lancelot :)

loved lancelot, the no click browsing is very nice. Have 2 requests:

1. Icon sizes - big+small = ugly

But one visually disturbing thing is the "Big icons" apart from small icons (as in the first screenshot. and it is difficult to distinguish "sub-menus" from "shortcuts"

Please allow (to enable/disable description) which could set the icon size, as, big+small icons are visually difficult to work with.

please also allow different/custom icon sizes for consistent looks. (like kicker of kde3 custom size but for icons)

2. Menu appearance - menu popup please not at the center of the screen.

could you please allow the menu to popup just like when we click on the lancelot icon, instead of at the center of the screen when alt+f5 is pressed.

Please click on lancelot icon and we can see the menu appears just above the icon,

Please press alt+f5 and we can see the menu appears in the middle of the screen, which is rather unexpected.

thanks so much for lancelot, it is very nice to have it. your efforts are worth the trouble.

Thanks.

1. I don't get the reason behind 'big+small icons are visually difficult to work with'. They make the categories visually different from applications, which in turn makes them have higher usability.

2. This would be a technical problem because the menu itself have no idea where the applet is located. This is due to the fact that you can have more than one applet in different locations on the screen, or you can have none at all, but you always have only one menu application running. (Or you could have a AWN-dock plugin that launches Lancelot etc.)

I try Lancelot menu and is very nice I like it, but when I add a custom icon in Lancelot launcher Applet, in particular a wide icon, I notice the icon is stretch. I can do some thing about this? Or you can do some thing about this?

Thanks

Wide icon as in not-really-an-icon? :) Well, the icons should have the same width and height in general. You could modify the image - canvas size or something like that in Gimp.

Well... not without some significant effort.

You could have it installed on your system* and make shortcuts (or even make a kicker applet) that invoke Lancelot through the d-bus.

For example, to show it in the top left corner, you'd have to call:
qdbus org.kde.lancelot /Lancelot show 0 0

* please note that although you wouldn't need to use KDE 4.x, you would still need kde4libs and workspace libraries installed.
* the other thing to note is that I don't know whether the Contacts section would work with older kmail and kopete. (maybe the d-bus interface has changed)

I was just wondering if there were any specific instructions to observe when upgrading from earlier versions?

Thanks!

I just went for it - compiled the new version and installed following directions.

Upgrade went fine, no weird issues or problems.

Not a lot of very obvious difference, but I think it's a tiny bit faster than 1.0.

Thanks again!

 Using with openbox + pypanel

Very good menu ! thanks

I'm using qt4/kde4 applications with openbox + pypanel (+idesk).
It is a very fast desktop but needs a real menu like Lancelot.
Is there a way to use it with kdelibs but without plasma ?

Thanks

This is cool :)

Well, you don't need to *use* plasma in order to use Lancelot. You need to have kde4libs, latest libplasma and taskmanager library from kdebase.

To invoke (open) Lancelot manually, just call
qdbus org.kde.lancelot /Lancelot show 0 0

(replace 0 0 with the position where you want it to pop up - according to your screenshot, it could be
qdbus org.kde.lancelot /Lancelot show 0 1024
to show in the bottom left corner.
)

Cheerio!

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
