Question 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'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.

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. :-)

Bump.

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

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?

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.
