Description Markus Grob 2008-02-23 23:14:03 UTC
Version:           4.0.1 (using KDE 4.0.1)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

In the "new" app launcher, you could copy entrys with a rightclick, but in the old app launcher, the right mouseclick starts the programm behind. I wish this, for the old menu too, because I don't like the new style ;-)

I'm not sure I completely understand this entry.

By "app launcher" do you mean the "Run Command" window? Or the k menu in the panel?

Right mouseclicking on ... which, the application entry? And would start the program behind what?
Comment 2 Markus Grob 2008-02-25 22:45:17 UTC
No, if I choose the widgets, there I have the entry application launcher. I think, the name should be kmenu. I could place it on the panel and use it to start programs.

In KDE 3.x or the new kmenu, you have a little menu (move to desktop, move to panel...), if you choose a shortcut from the startmenu. The traditional menu has nothing from this. If you click on a shortcut, the application is launched like by pressing the left mousebutton.
Comment 3 Aaron J. Seigo 2008-02-25 22:54:06 UTC
thanks for the additional explanation.

for others: the request is for a context menu on the entries in the Application Launcher Menu applet, as there is in the full kickoff applet.
