How to add items to "Create New.." Option

Postby Christof999 on Wed Jul 18, 2007 11:37 am

Hello,

Most distributions I have used with KDE have Open Office Documents listed in the options to create a document when right clicking. However since I installed KDE base in Cassandra it doesn't have it.

What Id like to know how to do is add items to the Create New sub menu. For example, say I am on the desktop, and I want to start writting an open office document, I right click, create new, OO Document.

How do I add that ?

Thanks
Christopher.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi

These are called the service menus

Have been looking into this, I am running Bianca with KDE installed, I "believe" the extra right click actions require the Kubuntu desktop to be added. Also there is a bug with service menus in Kubuntu.

If you require extra right click action, you can get some from:
Kdelook-service menus
