KDE Rollover Menus ?

Postby benali72 on Sat Mar 22, 2014 11:09 pm

When I rollover the KDE menu horizontally, the focus automatically changes between the options (Favorites, Applications, Computer, Recently Used, and Leave) and the menus above the selected option automatically change.

But within the menu panel, you have to click the mouse to open each menu sub-panel downwards in the hierarchy (and then you must click to go back, too). Is there a configuration setting that will enable rollover on all the KDE menus? I'm wondering because I found that PCLinuxOS KDE does this by default. Cursor rollover is faster and more convenient than clicking.

Thank you.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Right click on the menu icon and select "Switch to Classic Menu Style" instead.

Hey, thanks so much, Cobber, works great. It was wise of the developers to leave an option in there to change the menu style like that. Clever!

Cheers.

Yeah, sometimes the solution is staring us in the face and we can't see it.

We always think the answer must be "secret" or "geek only", but there are a lot of things in Mint that can be found by right clicking on things :)

That's driven me cracked for years now and I dislike the classic menu too. Luckily I recently found the Homerun menu which I'm absolutely loving. It's what should have been there in the first place imo.
