KDE Context Menu This simple mouse action plugin for Plasma Desktop 4.4 allows to launch the favorite applications konsole and ksnapshot. I did some small modifications to the application launcher plugin written by Christoph Feck (many thanks!). This is distributed under the LGPL 2+ license, see the header text in launch.cpp and COPYING for details. 1. Building You need KDE 4.4 or later incl. some devel packages. E.g. under a default installation of SUSE Linux 12.2 issue the command yast -i cmake libkde4-devel And you'll have what you need. To build and install call sh setup.sh 2. Restart KDE Before being able to use the plugin, you need to restart KDE. 3. Configuration After restart, click on desktop with right mouse button, and select "Desktop Settings". Choose symbol "Mouse Actions" in the settings dialog, and click "Add Action..." button. Then click on this button "Input Here..." with the mouse button that should invoke the favorites menu (I use left button). Then in the combobox next to this button select the "KDE Context Menu", and hit OK. You should now be able to invoke the favorites menu by clicking on the desktop with the button you specified in the settings dialog. Thanks and enjoy!
