    Default Kde kick off alternative

    Hi was wondering if there was a hood alternative to kick off I could use. On a pc I can bear kick off but I am spending my time mostly on a laptop lately.

    Is there a good alternatvE I could use?

    You can switch it to the classic menu style
    To do unluck the widgets then right click the kick off icon

    Edit:
    I am used to the xfce menu and I always switch the kde kick off to the classic menu style
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    Yeah classic is definitely better than kickoff . It looks with kde 4.8 and plasmoids this might be a little bit solved found this little guide http://www.thepowerbase.com/wp-conte...ktop-1_001.png . Saw also a screencast for kde HUD in 4.9.

    I found this AppMenu QML much more to my liking than the KDE Kickoff default- or menu-style:

    I can recommend Lancelot (I think it is pronounced Lauch-a-lot), that I am using on my Laptop.

    I like it a lot. I could not get used to its default "click-free"-usage option, but since this is an option, it is easily deselected.
