I use suse 12 with very few programs but when I install Komodo it doesn't add itself to my start menu? Why is some program in my start menu and others not?

  • What is your windows manager/desktop manager ?

KDE 4.4.4 (w.r.t openSUSE 11.3)

  • Right click on the Suse start button.
  • Click on Menu editor.
  • Click on New item on the horizontal top panel. Fill in the item name.
  • Click on the newly added item. Fill in the command that it needs to execute (see right side of that window).
  • Click Save on the horizontal top panel.

Try to google it.
There was already an answer about KDE, there it is (it's an exact duplicate I think) https://superuser.com/questions/422072/how-can-i-add-komodo-to-my-start-menu

  • No, the question is wrong. I asked for a quickstart posibility. I mean the start menu and not the panel.

  • Did you add Komodo to your PATH ? Maybe you could right click on your menu icon and select "menu editor" then manually add the entry in your menu. Should this work or you already tried ? And to answer your question about "why it isn't adding itself in the menu" I think that's because you didn't installed it with the package manager or oneclick install. Did you install it with a tar.gz or something like that ? Manual installation ?

  • I see. Right click on menu icon works. I've added Komodo to my developlement programs but there is no icon?

  • I think you can add it one manually with KDE. Though I use Gnome 3 so I'm not a professional about that. Right click on your program and check it's property directly in your menu maybe you can set an icon there.
