Thread: Questions on changing some of the KDE4 UI

    Default Questions on changing some of the KDE4 UI

    I have some questions on a few aspects of the KDE4 user Interface I would like to change/edit.

    First, How do I add/change the Actions menu from the context menu (Right-Click on file/folder menu)?

    Reason: I use peazip for 7zip, but when selecting multiple folders, I'd like to just Right-Click and Open with peazip! (Something 7zip allows you to do in Windows) Plus other stuff I'd like to add...

    Second, (and this might be a long shot, if even possible) Is it possible to replace the GTK+ file browser in GTK+ applications like Firefox, VMware, Pidgin, etc with the KDE4/QT file browser?

    Reason: I don't like gnome (no DE wars please) and I'd rather use KDE's UI when choosing where to save/open files. I know how to change Firefox's file picker, but it's still not KDE4/Dolphin. Firefox in Windows doesn't use GTK+ file picker, it's explorer! I think I did find an app for gnome to replace QT file dialogs with GTK+. Is there an app to do the opposite for KDE?


    P.S. Using KDE 4.1 in openSUSE 11.0

    1) You can enhance Actions menu with so called "Service Menus". There are many of them: KDE-Look Service Menus

    In your case this one will work: Extract And Compress

    Read the general instructions here: How To Service Menus

    2) For KDE file dialogs in GTK apps you can try KGtk: KGtk (Use KDE Dialogs in Gtk Apps)

    People haven't found success with it under KDE4 yet, though.
