KDE 3.5.1 right click on menu items doesn't pull up submenu


Not sure where the option is buried in KDE to change around my ability to edit the menu entires, and etc, from the submenu you could access by right clicking on a menu entry. Now a right click just launches the program. Can you point me to what option I need to change to get this back?

I dunno..I've never actually done that. As long as I remember, it's always worked like it opens the selection with right/left click. It's Gnome that does the right-click-menu-thingie, not KDE these days...

Isn't there an actual menu-editing application in KDE? Like Alacarte in Gnome?

You can try and go to settings->desktop settings wizard on the start bar. Set the Desktop behavior to KDE or Microsoft Windows. I like using the windows settings because it keeps all the same actions I have been used to using for so long, like maximizing the window when you double click on the Title Bar. This should hopefully solve the problem.

Desktop Settings wizard is nice, thanks for pointing it out, but no it didn't fix it. And yes there'a KDE menu editor, but I especially liked right clicking and selecting run as root for a few apps. Made it easier than alt+f2, etc.
