KDE Gnome Desktop Menu Edits (right click on desktop)
 
I would like to manually edit the menu that pops up when I right click on my KDE and/or Gnome Desktops. Curious if anyone can point me to the text files used for those menus. I have found them in Xfce4, Enlightenment, and Flux, but cannot find them for KDE or Gnome.

Any help would be appreciated.

Jim

I've been interested in this for a while, I don't know how though, so I eagerly away someone's reply :-D

I'm running Fluxbox so I'm not sure 'bout what you're asking.

I can walk you through editing the KDE main menu (ie "Start Menu" like menu) if that's the menu you mean.

They mean the right-click menu, IE: Right-click on the desktop....

In KDE, right-click on the desktop and select Configure Desktop... from that menu. Click on Behavior and change the Right Button from Desktop Menu to Custom Menu 1 or 2. Edit to your heart's content. :-)

Best regards,

Bump.

Does anyone know how to do this in GNOME? It is hugely important for productivity.

To edit the menu in gnome, install alacarte

Thanks for the tip. I installed alacarte (it removed smeg which was installed by default in Ubuntu), but I can't find a way to edit the desktop popup menu in alacarte either... Please advise?

See, I got a reply in Ubuntu forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=228371 :)

Last time I used Gnome I had to actually open alacarta from the menu rather then right clicking and selecting alacarte. Then I was able to make far more changes to the menu.
