These button are proof that Kicker looks good with Rectangular buttons!
kbfx is the applet similar to a 'Start Button' but we can make it more beautiful and attractive! KDE artists are you reading this ;)?
These buttons are created for 'Small' panel size! but can be used on Normal too. (you can resize it ;)
If you have better kmenu button or can create one please do make nice buttons for kbfx!
get kbfx from http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=24898
