    Changing the KDE Menu "side picture"


    Hi all,

    Sorry first of all if this is unclear but I can't think of a better way to describe this. The picture that is on the left hand side of the KMenu is the one I am looking to change. Does anyone know the directory where this is contained or how I can go about changing this?

    All of the customization material I have come upon so far has been about customizing menu entries.

    Thanks in advance,
    Bryan

    Do a Google search for " KDE kicker UseSidePixmap" and you should get some pages that might have what you are looking for.

    i think the chances are it will be contained with the theme because it seems to change depending on the theme. unfortunately, i don't know the exact directory. perhaps the kicker directory in /usr/share/apps.

    KMenu Side Image

    I know the timeline on this thread, but this might be of interest anyways. In PCLinuxOS the solution is;

    as su - modify this image

    /usr/share/apps/kicker/pics kside.png to reflect your OS info

    There may be other images there that you might want to customise.
