Description:

kded-appmenu is a kded module able:
- To display your application menubar at top screen
- To display your application menu using a title bar button (used by kde-workspace patch)
- To enable krunner-appmenu to works using kded-appmenu (as this)

To build it:
$ tar xvzf kded-appmenu-*.*.tar.gz
$ cd kded-appmenu-*.*
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
$ make
$ sudo make install

You can activate menubar with:
$ kwriteconfig --group "Menubar style" --key "MenuBarStyle" "TopHorizontal"

You can activate menu export for krunner-appmenu with:
$ kwriteconfig --group "Menubar style" --key "MenuBarStyle" "Others"

To reload kded conf:
$ qdbus org.kde.kded /modules/appmenu org.kde.kded.reconfigure


Just enable kded module at login with:
$ qdbus org.kde.kded /kded org.kde.kded.setModuleAutoloading appmenu 1

Then run kded module:
$ qdbus org.kde.kded /kded org.kde.kded.loadModule appmenu

You can also use systemsettings to configure kded-appmenu but you need to patch kde-workspace with appmenu.diff

If you want menu button in title bar, you also need to patch kde-workspace with appmenu.diff available here:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/kd/kdebase-workspace-appmenu/kdebase-workspace-appmenu.tar.gz

To build it:
$ tar xvzf kde-workspace-*.*.tar.gz
$ cd kde-workspace-*.*
$ patch -p1 < appmenu.diff
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
$ cd kcontrol/style
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ cd ../../kwin
$ make
$ sudo make install

I can't download the patch for kde-workspace, is the site down? Any news on if this will be integrated on upstream?

I use the appmenu plasma applet and I don't need the additional toolbar which kded-appmenu shows. How can I disable it? If turn off the kded-appmenu, the plasma applet does not work.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately this works only until a new application is started - then the toolbar comes again. Can someone else confirm this?

Unfortunately, what links all these appmenu* widgets/plasmoids is showing drop-down menus not in plasma theme but with windows color/style. Take, f.i, the screenshot of "kded-appmenu": File|Edit|View|... are in classic workspace plasma theme, but "New Window, New Tab,..." clash. Classic dolphin menu attached to a plasmoid: very ugly, imho.

Since this is a common situation, or there is a limit in plasma that prevents a full plasma appmenu or all appmenu* developers are reimplementing the same code, with little new touches.

So, thanking you for your work, can I ask if you plan to work on a full plasma themed appmenu?

libdbusmenu-qt send us a QMenu, that's why we use a QMenu :)

Having a 100% plasma menu is an idea, but after KDE integration (hope for 4.10) and IMO, plasma menu are a pain to use.
