KDE Menu Items

Hi All,

Well i've just got Slackware running with not many dramas at all, although Ive got a couple of questions.

Im using Mozilla as my browser, which is great, although sometime when I view web pages, the text is so small that I have to enlarge it. Is this just something I'll have to get used to because some sites are designed primarily for Internet Explorer?

And secondly, with KDE, I'm slowly removing some of the packages that were installed in setup opted for a full install), although the menu items to not get removed as well, and I have to go in manually each time after uninstalling the package.

Is there something in KDE where it deletes invalid links etc etc?


Edited : Also, with removing packages, is it safe just to delete the folder that stores the program? As I cant find some of the programs I want to uninstall in the Package Tool

I'm sure you can do that in the console (CLI) with ls to see what's there and then
$rm oldfile.c
A group of files can be removed either of these ways:
$rm badfiles*
$rm badfile1 badfile2 badfile3

Removing a directory, without confirmation, can be done as follows:
$rm -rf tree/
need to search? use grep (string)
and such to delete what you don't want. If you run into permissions problems you may need to do it as root -- don't be on line if you do that or use SUDO.
