Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2005-07-07 09:09:58 CEST
Several customers have asked me about this, so I think it's time to create a bug
for this: Would it be possible to add "kicker" icons via TLDC? That is, icons in
the "start menu bar" at the bottom. 

It seems like these icons are controlled not by individual files, but the file
~/.kde/share/config/kickerrc. That will make this functionality a bit harder, I
guess. OTOH, it's probably fairly simple to add icons to this file, if they are
not already there. 

Here's an example, from the launcher I have on my kicker menu:

CommandLine=-k sv brie -d signum -g 1024x768 -K

Or, perhaps there is or will be a XDG standard for these types of "launchers"?

Initial time estimation covers investigaions on how this works and how it's
supposed to work if there's an xdg standard coming.

As far as I can see, and Ossman agrees, there's no XDG spec for this kind of

Gnome hides information about its launchers deep down inside gconf, and includes
information such as the position from one of the ends of the bar, in number of

The information in kickerrc is different if you add a link to an existing
application. Here's what it looks like:


I wonder what the 'FreeSpace2' parameter is about.

Ugh. I get a bad feeling of this bug. Having to fiddle both with gconf and a KDE
configuration file, both of them with a format that has no format spec.. urk.

Hmm.. testing.
