I'd like to make apps menu more fine-grained by introducing submenus ==Internet== ===Web=== *Konqueror *Akregator ===File download and sharing=== *aMule *KTorrent *KGet ===Communication=== *KMail *Kopete *Konversation *Kontact *Knode ===Connectivity=== *KPPP *KRDC *KRFB *<monitoring apps?> ==Multimedia== ===Play and Manage=== *amarok *k3b *<tag editors> *<videoplayers> ===Create and edit=== *Kino *Audacity ==Graphics== ===View and Manage=== *Okular *Gwenview *Digikam ===Create and edit=== *Krita *Kolourpaint *Gimp ==Education== *Blinken ===Lingustic=== *KHangMan *KWordQuiz *Parley ===Math=== *KmPlot *KAlgebra *Kig ===Science=== *KStars *Kalzium *KTurtle ==Office== *Okular *Kwrite ===Groupware=== *kontact *KOrganizer *KTimeTracker (remove from menu -- present as plasmoid) *Kalarm (remove from menu -- present as plasmoid?) *KAddressBook *<Syncing apps> *<other kdepim apps> ===OpenOffice.org=== *<openoffice apps> ===KOffice=== *<koffice apps> ===Desktop publishing=== *scribus *kile ==System Tools== *Konsole *KSysGuard *KSystemLog *Strigi search *KSnapShot *<backup app> *<Accessibility apps> ==Configuration== *<...> ==Engineering== *kompare ===Programming=== *KDevelop *KCachegrind *<Version control tools?> ===Web-development=== *Quanta ===Translation=== *Lokalize ===CAD=== ===Math=== Alternatively, instead of 'Office' we could use 'Desktop Publishing', putting 'Groupware (Kontact)' into 'Internet' +merge 'Graphics' to 'Multimedia': *Multimedia *k3b **Music ***Play and Manage (amarok, tag editors) ***Create and edit (Audacity) **Video ***Play ***Create and edit (kino, etc) **Graphics ***View and Manage (Gwenview, Digikam) ***Create and edit (Krita, Kolourpaint, Gimp) Special entry in .desktop files determining the priority *The order is important (Menu-Priotity field) *apps with Menu-Priotity below some constant could be visually separated by the line *A lot of apps may be hidden, we should decide how to do this (Menu-Priotity threshold) *If category has only 1 item, the item should be displayed instead of category *'Utilities' category isn't needed at all. For example: -'root terminal' should be in System *Plasmoids: **charselect should be callable from anywhere but K-Menu **kcalc I like the way desktop widgets are displayed in Mac OS X Critisism I recieved from kde-devel@ so far: > .... submenus are bad. They do not seem very usable to me, > especially when the structure is not evident: ... so it's better to look through all 10-20 entries (possibly in in each category) before finding app that you need? > This breaks traditional alphabetical order... alphabetical order is of small value when user doesnt know the name of the app he is looking for. remember, the menu is for newcomers, experienced users use 'Search' field anyway.
