Will do soon! Jan 22 2018
Hope you saw I added this in v1.0.8! Enjoy! Jan 22 2018
The multi-screen issue was fixed a few updates ago - make sure you're running the latest Simple Menu. Jan 08 2018
I was asking to understand what margins you even mean - but you decided to be aggressive and mean for some reason. Huh. Dec 04 2017
Maybe I could just rotate when the screen is? Dec 03 2017
Could you explain what side margins you want to remove and why? Dec 03 2017
Ah, I see! Sure, I can add this in a later release. Nov 03 2017
Sorry, could you explain what you mean with "is there a way to lock the menu to only change on click"? Nov 02 2017
Cheers :) Nov 02 2017
Currently there isn't any, sorry. Once I find the time I want to put Simple Menu through kdereview and make it a proper KDE project, then it will receive a product category on the KDE bug tracker. Oct 26 2017
I'd prefer not to add options that change the design a lot (better to make a seperate widget). Oct 10 2017
The repo is linked as the website already. Sep 29 2017
No problem, I will add this option for you in v1.0.4. Sep 25 2017
You can arrow down to the results and then arrow right. Aug 26 2017
Meta to open and close works fine for me (Simple Menu 1.0.1, Plasma 5.10). Note there was a fix in this are in 1.0.1. Jun 01 2017
2. sounds more like a bug than a missing feature, I'll have a look.

Currently there's no issue tracker, sorry. Jun 01 2017
Did you actually get Simple Menu from the store? That code is not in 1.0 or 1.0.1. Feb 27 2017
The entire source code is in the Plasmoid package, but you can also use the git repo linkes from this store page - Feb 21 2017
It's open source code, so of course you can modify it :) It's a bit beyond the scope of this forum to teach how though :/ Feb 13 2017
The layout is reflecting the idea that most people just launch their favorites most of the time, which are fastest to reach this way. People don't browse categories that often (even search is often done by keyboard). Feb 13 2017
Sorry! You need to ask your distribution. Feb 11 2017
Hmm! This should actually already work. Can you try with long press on a favorite? Feb 11 2017
You can just use "Get New Widgets" in the "Add Widgets" sidebar to download Simple Menu from the Store! But on the command line you can use the "kpackagetool5" utility. Feb 09 2017
As mentioned in the description, this widget really needs Plasma v5.9, sorry! The error is about new v5.9 API it's using :). Jan 30 2017

Never say never! To tell you the truth I don't want to go over board on adding features/settings to this, especially right away. But I'll collect feedback for a while and when something comes up a lot, I might well add a knob to tune it to someone's liking later. Jan 30 2017
I added the following features to the launcher backend to support the Simple Menu UI:
* Efficient support for pagination
* Make showing the Power / Session category optional
* Added a mouse wheel signal to a UI utility that's used in the Simple Menu UI structure to support switching pages by mouse wheel
* Support for offsets in positioning Plasma dialogs

These things can be done in applets, but only by using C++ and/or forking the launcher backend code (also in C++), thus requiring compilation - making it impossible to put the applet on the KDE Store for now. It's better for resource usage to contribute to the launcher backend upstream; also the more featureful API will enable other widget authors! Jan 30 2017
Simple Menu uses the launcher backend code in Plasma Desktop, and needs API/features new in v5.9. I wanted to wait with the release until v5.9 is out, but someone working on a new Look n Feel package for v5.9 asked me if I could release it a bit early so they can test. Jan 30 2017

Yeah finally! Sorry for the long long wait. Mar 06 2016
It's been ported for a while, but I need to make a release still. Jan 14 2016
Probably Qt 4 vs Qt 5 Jan 13 2016
Thanks! Nov 28 2015
Can't think of a way, sorry. Dec 28 2013
Good luck and thanks for the compliments :). Aug 03 2013
You've most likely configured things in a way that causes Yakuake to be run twice at logon - when Yakuake is already running, trying to run it again will just open the window. Most likely you've set KDE to restart all apps at logon that were running at logoff and additionally added Yakuake to autostart. Aug 03 2013
In the "Configure Notifications" dialog in 2.9.9 or in the general config dialog in older versions. Nov 02 2012
Thanks :).

Unless anything requires a bugfix release first, the next one will be the big 3.0 with the new skin engine and, provided we can get the last needed bits on the Konsole KPart side in place, session management. Oct 20 2012
Sorry, that's a hack and doesn't fit into the design concept of Yakuake. May 24 2012
Hmm, well, detaching is not impossible to do, but I'm a bit wary of doing it because it's a big departure from the current Yakuake concept. It's also a fair amount of work. I'll think about it, but don't expect fast action. May 24 2012
Thank you! Apr 01 2012
Oh and make sure Yakuake isn't running while you edit the config file so your change isn't overwritten. Feb 27 2012
Open $KDEHOME/share/config/yakuakerc (whre $KDEHOME is $HOME/.kde or $HOME/.kde4 depending on your Linux distro) in a text editor and remove the line specifying the skin. Feb 27 2012
Unfortunately it's technically not possible at this time to move a terminal from Yakuake to a Konsole window. Aug 08 2011
I'm very sorry, but I have no interest in adding code specific to Compiz to Yakuake. You're saying that Compiz already has some sort of KDE compatibility codepath - most likely its compatibility with KDEs Sliding Popup effect is just outdated right now, not supporting the new animation duration parameter added in KDE 4.6. I'd suggest talking to the Compiz devs to enhance that so Yakuake works too. Jul 06 2011
Hi tobaj,

please read this recent comment on the current state of session save and restore support: Jul 05 2011
That this doesn't work is a bug in the Konsole KPart component, which Yakuake embeds to display terminals - the profile configuration dialog is part of the KPart as well.

Cool! Aug 30 2011
You have to use KServiceGroup and related classes. Have a look at the Kickoff or Lancelot code for how they do it. Aug 29 2011
Why are you using a bundled copy of something called qtxdg to parse menu data instead of using KDE's in-memory binary database of menu contents? (From a casual look at the source tree a while back.) Aug 29 2011
