Configuring ksmoothdock to replace KDE Kicker Panel.


I installed KDE 3.3.1 and ksmoothdock-.35. I like the ksmoothdock and would like to use it over the standard taskbar (I believe it is called kicker.) I researched this at kde-forum and came up empty. They recommended that I edit "panel.desktop" file and add this:
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Hidden=True
It works great, the kicker taskbar does not appear. However, the kde button on the ksmoothdock can pull up the K-Menu. I researched some more and discovered that when this kde button is click the command "dcop kicker kicker popupKMenu 0" is executed.

From the looks of that command, the ksmoothdock is dependent on the kicker panel (This is the program I am trying to disable on bootup.) loading on bootup.

Is there some other command I can use to to pullup the K-Menu?

It is not necessary that I use ksmoothdock. I would like to have something similar that would solve this dilemma. There has to be someone out that uses this program or something like it that knows how to sove this.

I posted a suggestion in your thread in KDE-Forum. Instead of getting rid of the main kicker panel, you can reduce its size to 1%, remove all the components on it, hide both the left and right "hide" buttons, and make it transparent.That will make the kicker panel totally invisible, as if you got rid of it.

I'm actually surprised that nobody has mentioned this method before.
