Creating and migrating a menu

I’ve created a custom menu of commonly used apps for adding to the main panel similar to the windoze quick launch

I want to maybe make a script for adding the same menu to other user accounts, or just do it manually by copying over the necessary files

Looked up some info on how menus are created by installations and identified the files that making my menu created

I’ve got the following files:


(There are also .directory files for submenus of my Menu in desktop-directories)

/home/user/.kde/share/apps/RecentDocuments/My Menu.desktop


I wasn’t able to find those last two files anywhere other than in RecentDocuments

From what I’ve read on the files needed for a menu, My Menu.desktop at least I would’ve thought should be somewhere other than RecentDocuments, but I’m damned if I could find it anywhere

I copied all the files relating to the menu I made from the user’s folders I created it in to another user’s folder in the corresponding locations and set the permissions accordingly

Obviously there’s something more I need to do because the menu isn’t there when I log into the account

Anyone have any ideas what I need to do here to get the menu loading?

I seem to be developing a habit of asking questions people don’t know the answer to … either that or I’m asking them wrong

The last one I asked that no-one really answered I eventually solved by uninstalling and reinstalling the app around fourteen times, that approach isn’t gonna apply to this one though

Probably end up being a case of either keep doing it the long way round or do a load more reading and playing until I eventually figure it out myself … it’s all good fun
