Description:

Simple Menu is an intentionally minimal launcher widget for Plasma 5. Powered by the same powerful backend as Plasma 5's bundled launchers, its UI is similar to the fullscreen Application Dashboard, just in a small, floating window. In addition to the application grid and filtering, it supports favorites, search and basic system actions.

NOTE: Simple Menu requires Plasma version 5.9 or higher and KDE Frameworks version 5.34 or higher.

Last changelog:

Changes in v1.0.12 1 year ago

* Menu entries are now always sorted alphabetically. On future Plasma releases this will include the category list on the right of Simple Menu.
* The search field now has a placeholder text.

What nice gem. Could you add an option for adding suspend and perhaps hibernate along with log out, etc? Another suggestion could be tooltips for those buttons

The menu is simply awesome. One request please add an option to change the CATEGORY to the LEFT SIDE, or please provide one more file with that changed to the left side. Here is how it look on my desktop. https://pasteboard.co/HVZp3mw.png I have to move my cursor every time longer to select the category and back to select application. I tried to dig into the code of plasmoid at /user/.local/share/plasma/ but am not any good at coding.

The menu is pretty good, by I would like if these options were added: Show category icons, show category on the left, disable the margin and use the same animation like the default menu.

Is there a way to make the menu appear center screen? Otherwise, it is clean and very useful. Thank You!

Nice widget, thanks for your work on it! I'd like to translate it to Russian, any way to do this?

Also, some suggestions:
1. Add "Often used" and "Recently used" section as in Dashboard launcher
2. Option to show triangle "connecting" widget with the panel button, like this: https://i.imgur.com/MokChg4.png or this: https://i.imgur.com/fSvSbzx.png
Less important:
3. Option to move reboot, shutdown, etc. buttons to the bottom
4. Option to move categories column to the left

Simple Menu is hosted on kde.org and recently went through kdereview, so the official repository will soon be git.kde.org:simple-menu and will get KDE i18n coverage. You can then contribute a Russian translation via KDE's Russian translation team!

#2 needs to be added to the Plasma libraries.

#3 and #4 I currently have no immediate plans for (to keep it simple), sorry!

Can you check which version you have? This was fixed in v1.0.7 a few months back.

Thanks for your addition. It really improves my desktop experience.
The one thing I had an issue with is using it in combination with wayland. I don't know whether its supported yet and unfortunately it crashes the whole compositor in a way that doesn't even allow to change to a tty. Even if i could i would have no idea on how to debug this. Maybe you could look into it or give some assistance?

Changes in v1.0.12 1 year ago

* Menu entries are now always sorted alphabetically. On future Plasma releases this will include the category list on the right of Simple Menu.
* The search field now has a placeholder text.

Changes in v1.0.11 1 year ago

* Launching apps by touchscreen tap now works.
* An item's highlight decoration now stays in place when opening its context menu.
* Resource usage optimizations for an even faster and lighter menu.
* Minor bugfixes.

Changes in v1.0.10 1 year ago

* Fixed "Add to Favorites" not working as of v1.0.8.

Changes in v1.0.9 1 year ago

* Fixed a bug causing system action buttons to stay highlighted when the mouse pointer leaves the area.

Changes in v1.0.8 1 year ago

* Made switching categories by hovering them optional. You can now turn it off in the settings.
* Custom panel button images now work better. They're smoothly scaled, and square images are automatically rounded to crisp sizes just like normal icons are.
* The UI for setting custom button images now uses the regular icon picker dialog (it supports custom images in recent releases of the KDE Frameworks libraries) and you can also set a custom button image by just dropping it on the config area.
* Speed optimizations to make the menu open faster and speed up switching of categories.
* Fixed hovering a menu item interfering with arrow keyboard navigation on newer versions of Qt.

Changes in v1.0.7 1 year ago

* Fixed arrow navigation through the search results after entering search terms not working.
* Improved arrow navigation while searching: Previously, it was necessary to arrow down into the results after entering search terms before horizontal arrow navigation through the search results would work. This was changed, so that e.g. arrow right will now immediately move to the second search result, for a more friction-free search and launch experience.
* Tab and Shift+Tab can now be used to cycle through the search field, the system favorites (Shutdown & co) and the category list.

Changes in v1.0.6 1 year ago

* Fixed triggering context menu actions.

Changes in v1.0.5 1 year ago

* Speed optimizations to open the menu faster.

Changes in v1.0.4 1 year ago

* Fixed menu appearing on the wrong monitor in multi-monitor setups.
* Fixed crash when opening the context menu for search result items.

Changes in v1.0.3 1 year ago

* Fix favorites on Plasma 5.11 and support the new globally shared favorites and unique per-activity favorites.

Changes in v1.0.2 1 year ago

* Made sure initial arrow key press always selects first item.
* Polished search experience: First search result is selected while searching, no longer requiring extra key presses to launch.
* Fixed auto-hide panels not staying open while Simple Menu is open.
* Support for the panel icon size hint in Frameworks 5, prevents panel icon getting too large in wide panels.
* Fixed panel icon missing mouseover highlight effect.
* Now requiring KDE Frameworks v5.34.
