There are many possibilities, mostly I use hotkeys and icons on the desktop, however the frequency of starting applications through kicker icon is not low.

So it might be better to add "More than the offered" option in the poll.. ;)

I'm not sure what i use the most. But I definitely don't use gestures and I don't use a kicker command applet or start X programs in yakuake (though I use yakuake very often).

One application has a hotkey (ksnapshot), two applications I start via special keys on my keyboard (amaroK and kjots). I have some icons on my desktop and some icons in my kicker. The K-menu I don't use very often. And via konsole? Only when a program misbehaves.

Well, I guess the most applications I start either from Alt-F2 or directly via a file.

I mostly use Run dalog, standard it is set on Alt + F2 but I think is clumsy so I moved it to F12.

I'm a "quick launch" fiend, in both linux and windows, for apps I use all the time like gaim, firefox, konsole, amarok... :-p

Anything that isn't used enough to get a quick launch icon is launched from the K menu or from konsole. However, I may have to start using Alt-F2...somehow I had never heard about that little trick! ;-)

I start apps mostly through kommando and Run dialog. Through K menu only when I install new application.

normaly i would use alt+f2 but not since katapult 3.1 was released- i'm still waiting for a better version, but this one is good enough for now. i also use a lot of shortcuts for most used stuff. kde apps menu, only to search for something in a certain category, definitly not mouse gestures. yakuke is probably the app that i use the most, but not for lauching applications.

 Kicker and ALT+F2

 by Maxilys on: Feb 7 2006

But I voted for Kicker. All the most frequently used apps are on a docker-like panel. ALT+F2 is a shortcut to enter URIs for Konqueror that aren't directly accessible from one of the quick browsers or my bookmarks --in a Kicker panel of course.

When I want to test a new app, I open a Konsole to see all eventual error messages. If I like what I see, I add a new icon in my docker panel and that's it.

The K Menu is the last option when there's absolutely nothing else to do.

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.
