start main menu command in kde

i am a new user of suse.
some time start menu goes missing from my desktop so i had to logout from session and then re login…
is there any commnad which can start main menu ?


This shouldn’t happen. (I have assumed you mean kde4)
At any time you can right click on the desktop and add a widget, add a application launcher.

I would be more interested in solving the issue properly. Perhaps you need to start with a new .kde4 folder?

Actually this happens when KDE crashes on the logout. On the next start the previous state is restored, when there was no Start Menu (it’s called K Menu ;)).
First quit from the applications in the System Tray then add the K Menu to the panel and re-log.
Go to System Settings > Advanced > Session Manager, make sure that the option Restore previous session is selected.
Good luck.
