Is there a way to hide the KDE 4.3.5 menu until its needed?


I installed the new Frugalware 1.2 via USB and that went well. I wanted an LXDE menu, as I don't like the "style" of the KDE menus, and the KDE menus seem slow, too.

The problem is that after installing LXDE, I have the LXDE menu from what I'd call the start button, which I like, but the KDE menu is now covering the entire screen on all desktops, and there seems no way to minimize it. I doubt I'll have to use it often, but don't want to lose all access to the programs on it. I haven't checked to see if all the programs are on the LXDE menu, but I noticed that Gfpm (the package manager) is now missing from the menu. Not sure if anything else has disappeared.

Any suggestions? n Is there a way to minimize or hide the KDE menu?

Thanks...

LOL, I didn't know that. I like that the packages are very up to date compared to debian lenny, which is a distro I also like, along with its derivative Knoppix.

I fixed the problem by reinstalling without KDE. I got XFCE instead, and will now add LXDE.
