Description:

Only(?) for OpenSuSE 10.2 !

This K-menu kickoff button is made as replacement for the chameleon that's in your kicker if you use the new SuSE-kickoff (like KBFX) instead of the classic KDE-kickoff.

It works without KBFX !

This button is made for a kicker-size of 58 pixels or for the setting "big".
The button will be scaled, if your kicker is smaller, but then it won't look very nice.

Maybe I've written some mistakes in the ReadMe ... forgive me, I'm german ;-)

HAVE FUN !!

KDE 3.5.7

1) for the first time I tried this set it crashed my system
2) for the second it didn't work (normal KMenu icon showed up)

because of (1) I removed the set, but I have to admit icons look good. Thank you for your work.

What do you mean with "it crashed your system"?
I can't imagine that changing an icon only in your user folder (/home/YourNAME/.kde/share/apps/kicker/pics/) can crash your system, so can you explain?

AFAIR it prevented me from logging-in to the system.

Thank you for your reply.
Still i can't realize how this could be ...
If the file kmenu_basic.mng in your /home/YOURNAME/.kde/share/apps/kicker/pics directory is broken, the system will use the kmenu_basic.mng under /opt/kde3/share/apps/kicker/pics (i only tested it with OpenSuSE 10.2 and Xorg 7.2 / 7.3).
AFAIK the KMenu has nothing to do with logging in and out ...
But hey, wait 'till today evening, i'll upload another cool one, it's an animated 3D-button i'd made a few months ago, but hadn't upload ....

Looks very good! I will use it! ^^
How did you made them? I don't like a "big" kicker so it would be nice if I could scale them with a program, or maybe you could do this? ^^

And don't worry about you English, I'm German too, and I think there are so much Spanish and French (and other) people here, who also don't speak good English, they won't notice a mistake ; )

I used the good old GIMP ...

I had to make theses buttons from scratch, 'cause I've had no template and the GIMP doesn't opens mng-files on my system, but he can create some (mng-pictures are animated png-pictures like gif).

All these buttons I will make for a kicker size of 48px, too (setting normal, default or resp. standard) ... but I have less time, 2 kids and they ask for their dad ;-)
