Why don't you put to the description huge WARNING, that this will destroy kicker and if this doesn't work (for example on dapper, where GLiBC 2.4 is missing), kicker won't work too? I had to remove about 9 packages, including konqeror and other very important, and install them again to make kicker work. Fortunately the configuration was ok.

Is better to reinstall kicker:
dpkg --purge kicker-kickoff
apt-get install --reinstall kicker

Work in Debina etch. I don't do that in Kubuntu, but I think is work nice too...

I also noticed I had to rename /usr/lib/kde3/kcm_kicker.so.orig back to /usr/lib/kde3/kcm_kicker.so

The problem is with the dependeces. If you want to reinstall kicker, you have to reinstall many programs.
I just run adept, set kicer to uninstall and I cound see all the packages that will be uninstalled too (including konqeror). I wrote them to the list and set "apply changes". After that I had to install all the packages again, one after the anoter.

Do

kcontrol -> look&feel -> style -> effects -> disable menu shadows

to get rid of those ugly frames around the menus.
Sorry if the expressions are not exactly that what you have, i use i18n-de, but i hope you know what i mean ;)

You only need to disable kde's menu-shadows if you use composite / beryl / etc. with shadows.

this program looks good but unfortunately is only for kubuntu 6.10(edgy) and may be versions above that, as this program requires GLIBC 2.4 which is availible only in 6.10 version of the OS.

Thanks friend for providing kubuntu deb package.

I wish, there were 2 more options:

1. Fonts Size (I'm unable to change the font size kcmshell fonts won't help)
2. the "My Computer" tab should open "/media" instead of "media:/"

the way kubuntu handles media:/ as /media is just awesome. is it possible to change that in kickoff's system section in the "my computer" tab, that to replace with'/media' instead of media:/ please..

thanks..
