Hi, I was wondering how can I add shortcuts to programs in the main taskbar, left of the 4 desktops icons. Not gadgets, shortcuts to programs.

The second problem, how can I remove menu entries for software that I removed? For instance, I opened the menu updater and ckecke the nano editor. After a while, I removed the nano editor but I still got the entry in the start menu, editors > nano editor. And this is not the only example.

The third problem, I installed 7zip-full, with the apt-get command from console, as root. In the package manager it displays to be installed, but no menu entry. How can I execute it?


Thanks!

I only have Add to Favorites if I right click on the app in Kmenu (start up button). So either I dont understand, either its not working. Thanks anyway, but I still need help.

maybe you can try drag&drop it from the Kmenu to exactly where you want it. Works for me.

Right-click the Cashew in the upper right corner of your screen, choose "Unlock Widgets", then do as devil said. When you are finished adding shortcuts to panel, lock widgets.

Yeah, in needed to be unlocked first, in order to see the option. Thanks. Two more problems though:

- how can I remove menu entries for software that I removed? For instance, I opened the menu updater and ckecke the nano editor. After a while, I removed the nano editor but I still got the entry in the start menu, editors > nano editor. And this is not the only example.

- I installed 7zip-full, with the apt-get command from console, as root. In the package manager it displays to be installed, but no menu entry. How can I execute it?

care to help ?

To remove an item, right-click the blue "K" button on the end of your panel, and choose "Menu Editor". Browse it to the menu group, then the item, highlight the item, click the red X "Delete" and say "good-bye".

To add an item, use the "Add Item" button.

I have installed 7zip but there is no graphical interface. If I write in a terminal, 7z it lists a command line list. But is there an interface for it ?

Description: 7zr file archiver with high compression ratio
p7zip is the Unix port of 7-Zip, a file archiver that archives with
very high compression ratios.
.
p7zip provides:
- /usr/bin/7zr
a standalone minimal version of the 7-zip tool that only handles
7z archives. 7z compression is 30-50% better than ZIP compression.
- /usr/bin/p7zip
a gzip like wrapper around 7zr.
.
p7zip-full provides 7z and 7za which support more compression formats.
