Expandable KDE Launcher [Solved]

Postby TheConsaw » Mon Dec 28, 2009 16:32

hey guys, loving 5.1kde, thanks a lot,
so i made the move from being a gnome linux novice
my quick question is, it it possible to have the sub-menus in kde's launcher expand without me having to click, i see there is classic menu option and this works, but i find that menu very small, i like the big bulky menu....now if i could just tweak it..!

any ideas thanks in advance

also while i'm here ,
how can i enable disabled fonts in
Code: Select all
eselect fontconfig list


thank you

eselect <module> help . i.e. eselect fontconfig help:

disable <target> Disable specified fontconfig .conf file(s)
<target> Target name or number (from 'list' action)
enable <target> Enable specified fontconfig .conf file(s)
<target> Target name or number (from 'list' action)
list List available fontconfig .conf files


so your looking for: eselect fontconfig enable <#> (what ever # from eselect fontconfig list)

I don't know if what you ask is possible in Kickoff, but it is possible with a substitute for Kckoff called Lancelot. See the thread Review in Linux Format magazine (Christmas 2009 edition) for links to a demonstration video and a HowTo for installing Lancelot.
