    Exclamation Kickoff vs. Lancelot which one do you prefer?

    i do not like Kickoff menu in kde. i recently informed about Lancelot menu.
    i want to know is it better than Kickoff menu (in terms of user interface, user friendliness and running without problem and bug in openSUSE 12.1)?
    how can i install it in openSUSE 12.1?
    thanks

    Did you try the classic menu style for Kickoff, it's more like windows ladder menu? [unlock widgets, right click button, select classic style]

    The great thing about Opensuse is you can choose which one works for you. So to answer your question which do YOU prefer?
    You Like Lancelot? Use that! You like Kickoff? Use that!
    It doesn't matter what is the preferred by most here it's your set up do it your way.

    The package "plasma-addons-lancelet" is part of the standard KDE install.

    Become 'root':
    $ su -

    (1) # zypper refresh && zypper install plasma-addons-lancelot

    (2) # yast2 > Software > Software Management
    [find the package and install]

    i installed lancelot but it has a small problem:
    when i forward into more than one menu in lancelot (for example: lancelot menu>>>applications>>>system>>>configuration), how can i backward? i click on "system" thumbnail above the lancelot menu but it does not work (but in kickoff it works). i should add that when i click on two level before (for example in above situation, when i click on
    applications) it back one level (come from configuration to system) but if i click on system it does not back.
    how can i solve this problem?
