How to add KDE menu to DroplineGNOME menu!


I use sometimes in Slackware 10.2 DroplineGnome. I use also KDE. Therefore I missed the KDE menu in Gnome (some useful KDE programs I had to start manually therefore).

Now I was able to merge both menues (KDE and DLGnome), KDE menu is included in Gnome and I use the crystalsvg-icons for KDE entries.

I did as root in a terminal:

Copy the entries of KDE to GNOME with

Code:
cp -R /opt/kde/share/applications/kde/* /usr/share/applications/
Then

Code:
update-desktop-database -v
to update the database.

Copy the menu-icons of KDE to the directory which GNOME uses

Code:
cp -R /opt/kde/share/icons/crystalsvg/* /usr/share/icons/gnome/
Then

Code:
gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/gnome
to update the database.

Now all KDE entries are in GNOME menu and they show the icons of crystalsvg. Other KDE styles are possible by copying another icon-directory out of /opt/kde/share/icons/ to /usr/share/icons/gnome/.

It works for me and may be also for interested GNOME/KDE-users ...

Fluxx.
