very nice work...however I would like to change the Kubuntu button to KDE and link it to KDE-Look.
I checked both /usr/share/apps/kicker
and ./kde/share/apps/kicker
But cant find the button image, or the config file to change the URL.
Can you point me in the right direction?
Thanks
Scott

How to compile this from source?
The source you gave contains a lot of stuff I already have (like, kicker, klipper, kate, omfg, whole kde (or a lot of kde))

My kickoff menu doesn't show anything in the recent application tab, only documents are listed there.
I guess it is a configuration problem, but I can't figure out where to look, any suggestion?
thanks!

Thanks for the package! I tried, used it for 3 days, and found that its slower to use, then the normal KDE menu. Looks like there is no way to customize this thing.

Sorry, but I don't know how I can use KickOff. I downloaded the .deb and installation was OK. I don't know how can I start it.

(sorry my english)

As a general rule you should right-click your Kicker panel and select "Add applet" option. If there is no such option, you will have to use the "Unlock panels" option first. Hope this applies to Kickoff, too..

The source link you gave above is no more maintained by the kickoff developers since november. Also the package provided here is the old version of kickoff...

The right address is:

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/work/suse_kickoff_qstyle/

This new version fixes a lot of issues mentioned here like the resizing of the button, is more configurable and simply runs better...

For those who want to build it from source, take a look here and download the ArchLinux PKGBUILDs, there is everything included:

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=52160

The PKGBUILDs are just scripts and are pretty easy to understand, and it should be no problem to adapt the build process for other distros...

Good Luck and have fun :)

It would be very nice if you make this one in many sizes like small or tiny or big to meet others needs....that would be very nice..

Or if you can make it to resize auto with the size of the kicker i dont know if that can be happened but if can be.. it would be very nice also ....


thanks

I tried a precedent version on Debian Etch, it did not work...

As far as I remember, it missed a version of gcc (not sure of myself), the one hold in the debian testing repository beeing not the latest one...

I'll be glad to reinstall this package to give you the exact librairy missing, but it was quite messy the last time, i needed to reinstall kicker in order to get back my applets and stuff.

I'm a newbie, but if i can help to compile it, i'll be glad... I really like this menu.
