New KDE system menu button: how to remove it

Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring introduces a new, Mandriva-branded system menu button for KDE (the button at bottom left of the screen which opens the system menus). Some users find it to be too large. Also, some users who prefer to use a larger panel find it does not look very good with a larger panel size. If you would like to remove it, create the file ~/.kde/share/config/kickerrc with the following contents:


Alternatively, you can use any icon name from your desktop theme to be displayed as system menu button by changing the value of “KMenuIcon” key to valid icon name. For example, you can put “KMenuIcon=menuk-mdk” in ~/.kde/share/config/kickerrc to have star-like system menu button.

To apply the new icon immediately restart kicker by running dcop kicker kicker restart.

This will only make the change for your user. To make the change for all users, you must edit the system-wide configuration file. For instructions on editing system configuration files, please see this page. The file can be found in one of the following locations:

  • /var/lib/mandriva/kde-profiles/free/share/config/kickerrc
  • /var/lib/mandriva/kde-profiles/one/share/config/kickerrc
  • /var/lib/mandriva/kde-profiles/discovery/share/config/kickerrc
  • /var/lib/mandriva/kde-profiles/powerpack/share/config/kickerrc
  • /var/lib/mandriva/kde-profiles/powerpackplus/share/config/kickerrc

The location depends on the edition of Mandriva Linux you are using. Make the same change to this file as was recommended earlier.

New KDE theme: how to go back to official KDE theme

In Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring, a new look for KDE has been set up. Mandriva’s theme is stored in /var/lib/mandriva/kde-profiles/. To revert back to the official KDE theme, open the KDE Control Center (not the Mandriva Control Center) and go to option System Administration > option Mandriva KDE Profile Chooser and remove all entries (in Administrator Mode).
