    Default KDE 4.8.5 - Application launcher for user scripts

    Hello.
    Is it possible and if yes how to install a second copy of kickoff or lancelot or any application launcher for personal use ( I mean with no relation with which one installed and used by the system ).
    I am searching an application launcher for my shell programs that I would like to start from a GUI menu.
    Help is welcome.
    Thanks for helping. JCD

    To open the widget browser we need to Right click on panel ==> Navigate to Panel options ==> Add Widgets,check whether quick launcher is available here
    or ==> Get New Widgets ==> Download New Plasma Widgets. This tool will allow us to add more widgets to the desktop.

    Nothing that look like a stand alone app launcher.

    Since i use GNOME, I know how to do this in GNOME . I am sure that there should be some hidden widget that can do this for you.
