Change the KDE Menu icon


How do I get rid of the star icon that is where the kde icon should be on the KDE start menu?

Thanks

AFAIK, there are two options:

1) Change the source & recompile.
2) change the actual icon in /usr/share/icons (+ /crystalsvg maybe?). So keep the name the same, but change the icon.

The same thing goes for the "show desktop" icon. The icon is called desktop-mdk.png, and is somewhere in either /usr/share/icons or /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg; forgot which place exactly.

Here's what I did:

Navigate here:
/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/menuk-mdk.png

Rename menuk-mdk.png to menuk-mdk-bak.png

Navigate Here:
/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/kmenu.png

Rename kmenu.png to menuk-mdk.png

The folder 32x32 might depend on the size of your startbutton.

restart kde

note: There are several sizes depending on your default menu size ie: 16x16, 32x32 etc...
you may have to change the menuk-mdk.png in those folders as well.

Thanks kencaz that worked like a charm. Now do you know how to remove the word menu from over the icon?
