Hi people,

Somehow I lost my Kmenu from my desktop and I have no idea how to get it back.
I'm running VL 5.8 SOHO final.  Even though it isn't necessary, it is handy as the devil.

appreciate your help

reb,

I don't normally use KDE, but I logged in to see if I could find a fix for this.  First, I right-clicked on the icon for the Kmenu and selected "Remove K menu menu."  Naturally enough it disappeared.

Then I right-clicked on a blank section of the panel, and I got a menu.  The top item was "Add applet to panel."  I selected that.  Then I got a dialog box which presented me with a list I could scroll through.  The 11th item down was "K Menu."  I selected that,clicked to button at the bottom of the box which said "Add to Panel" and it added the K Menu to the panel.  Then I had to right click on the icon for the K Menu to get another menu which let me move it to where I wanted it (all the way to the left).

I'm using VL 5.9 Standard with KDE 3.5.8 installed, so you're system may be different.

I hope this helps.
