Thread: How to add custom links to KDE4 desktop menu?

    Default How to add custom links to KDE4 desktop menu?


    Is there a way to put other menus and scripts to desktop menu?
    I'm sure there was a solution for this on xfce and I've seen terminal option in fedora kde.

    Depending on to what extent you want to modify it:

    KDE 4 Service Menu Editor

    Edit the right-click menu. - Administration - KDE-Forum.org

    You could've found it yourself. I've just typed "kde4 edit right click menu" in Google. Fedora introduced this modification by modifying a piece of source code and making custom compilation.

    Apparently I need to recompile to add what I wanted to.
    There are options to configure "contextual menu plugin" but no options to add custom commands.
    The app you linked is for dolphin service menus and the second link is from 2008, there's no ~/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc in KDE4

    Start Konqueror - Settings - Konqueror Settings. Under Filemanagement you'll see "Services". Here you can download new services, appearing in the context menus.

    Thanks, but this is a solution to add links in file manager menu, not desktop menu.
    I wanted to add bash scripts or *.desktop links to this one :



    This next image is from fedora, it wasn't clear to me how they managed to add "Konsole" there :



    As Krysiul said, they modified the source, I wasn't sure if there was a way to do it via config files so I asked.
    Cheers

    Yeah, I know, I posted it because it contains information about the menu's immutability of some kind and this Mouse Buttons action thing

    BTW it's strange that modyfing right click menu is such a big deal in KDE. One could think that it isn't a problem at all as start menu is easy to modify via configuration files.
