Is the openSUSE KDE menu part of the official KDE?
 
I can't seem to find much on the specifics, but I'm curious about the openSUSE KDE menu. I like it - a LOT.

I would like to know if anyone knows if this is going to (or has) been included in the main KDE code base.

Best answer I can give you is to burn a few liveCD distros that use Kde and try them out. From my own experience, most of the Kde menu is the same, but Suse does add some of it's own stuff to it, like YaST and the utilities you access through YaST.

I don''t believe so. You can add the regular kmenu if you miss it.

I would sure love to see the KDE menu found in openSUSE committed to the KDE codebase. I'm not sure how many people out there like like it or hate it, but I am a big fan of it, and it has kept me going back to SUSE for that reason.

if you mean the start button thing in suse, it's package 'kbfx' and included in every distro (belongs to meta-package kde-extras I think but not sure).

Actually the SUse KDE menu is called kickoff.

Oooh, kickoff looks very Vista-ey. I think I'd like it if it were terminologically (hey it seems to really be a word!) more linux-esk. Now those are some really make up words in those sentences! :D

I have a decent KDE setup that I just customized yesterday on my Gentoo system. I think the biggest thing lacking is indeed some kde menu customization, maybe I'll give this "kickoff" a try. I switch between XFCE4 and KDE, snappy and somewhat sexy vs very sexy.

Thanks for the links!

ok, sorry then, I admit that I haven't used a recent suse.
It does look somewhat similar to kbfx though.
