kde-contextmenu is a program that allows you to change the menu you get when you right-click onto the KDE desktop.

kde-contextmenu is simple and extendable.

To set it up:

  • install the needed dependencies, e.g. for SUSE Linux 12.2 open a console and issue
yast -i cmake libkde4-devel
cd
unzip Downloads/kde-contextmenu-master.zip
  • build and install it, e.g.
cd kde-contextmenu-master
sh setup.sh
  • this should install everything
  • log out and log in again
  • now right-click onto your KDE desktop, select "Mouse Actions"

  • now you can change the action for "Right Button" to "KDE ContextMenu"
  • enjoy this program's simplicity :)

To revert these changes:

  • delete ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc

Developers

This chapter is for people who want to develop this plugin.

If I do not define

QList<QAction *> contextualActions();

I get

The same happens when in contextualActions() I

return Plasma::ContainmentActions::contextualActions();
