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 48 pixels or for the setting "default".
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 !!

I didn't know that it works for kubuntu, too ... resp. that kubuntu has a k-menu-kickoff like the new SuSE-kickoff, too.
(I mean the menu that looks a little bit like kbfx)

Maybe you should explain how you did that, so that other users can change/use it, too on their kubuntu systems?

i simply copied and renamed kmenu_active.mng to kmenu_active.png

Oh thank's, I didn't know that it's such easy to use them in kbfx, too!

But if you rename them to png, they will not be animated any more, right? As I know, png only uses the first frame?

In the readme file you say:

FIRST, MAKE A BACKUP OF THE ORIGINALS !!!!!!
/opt/kde3/share/apps/kicker/pics/kmenu_basic.mng
/opt/kde3/share/apps/kicker/pics/kmenu_vertical.mng
/opt/kde3/share/apps/kicker/pics/kmenu_flipped.mng

As root, copy the 3 new pictures
kmenu_basic.mng
kmenu_vertical.mng
kmenu_flipped.mng
into the folder
/opt/kde3/share/apps/kicker/pics

It can be done this way, but there is another way. You can make the button available to one user only by creating a pics directory in your ~/.kde/share/apps/kicker directory and copy the files there, then remove the K Menu and add it back to the panel - it works just ok for one user only.

So for example if your home directory is /home/user then you have to create directory /home/user/.kde/share/apps/kicker/pics and copy the files there

Oops ... ok
sorry, but I didn't read exactly what you wrote.

That's a good idea and you're right, that it works for only one user if you save the pics under "~/.kde/share/....."

Thanks a lot !
That's better than the root-method !

Hello @Hedron,

yes, that's right - it's possible, but note that other users on your system won't see the kickoff icon if they don't have the mng-files in "~/..." , too!

I've already said that in

48px is the default kicker setting in my (german) suse distro. If I change my kicker to a smaller size, the icon is too big !?

No, I mean: you can use *this* Kickoff-Icon for kickers smaller than the default-size, too. My Kicker is only 24 pixels wide and still your icon fits. Resizing kicker *after* installing the icon does not work though, its size would stay the same.

Und noch mal ganz kurz auf Deutsch: Deine Beschreibung legt nahe, dass dieser nur für 48 Pixel breite Kicker geeignet sei - stimmt aber nicht! Ich hab einen 24 Pixel breiten Kicker und Dein Icon funktioniert trotzdem super (ich weiß allerdings nicht, wie es sich mit den anderen Größen verhält). Was jedoch nicht funktioniert, ist das ändern der Größe nach dem Installieren, da bleibt das Icon so klein wie zuvor (was aber nicht wirklich ein Manko ist).

Yes, you're completely right.
I've changed my description and the ReadMe yesterday and I've updated the files.
Thank you for your help!

Deutsch...
Ich hatte dich schon richtig verstanden, aber als ich die Größe meines Kickers änderte, war da nur noch ein viertel von dem Button zu sehen. Als ich das allerdings später nochmal gemacht habe und dann mit der Maus über den Button ging, hatte er die richtige Größe, sieht aber skaliert nicht mehr so toll aus, was ich nun auch in die Beschreibung aufgenommen habe ... sowas blödes, ich achte sonst eigentlich auf alles, ein richtiger noob-fehler =)
Vielen Dank für deine Hilfe !

Looks good, works good - what more could we ask for? Nice thingy!

But: it actually *does* work with bars smaller than 48 pixels, like my superslim 24-pixel-bar... your description sounds as if one needs a default-size kicker to use it, which does not seem to be the case.

Thank you and keep it up!

Kickoff packages also exist for Kubuntu and other distros.

Oh thanx, I didn't know that.
I've only seen a portage of the new kickoff for CRUX (?) ...
