KDE Service Menu Editor is a simple way of editing the right-click menus that you see when using Dolphin. It has simple but flexible way of selecting the "mime types" (type of file) that the menu should appear on. Then adding the menu is as simple as typing a name and the command
The reason I wrote this application, is because I noticed a lot of menus had not been ported to KDE4, rather than port them, I thought "why not write an application so everyone can make these menus easily."
Version 0.2 has been released with an entirely rewritten edit dialog with ease-of-use in mind. It also fixes some of the bugs that may have existed in the last release.
Python-KDE4 bindings are required.
If we wanted to make a right click menu for compressing a file with GZip we would do the following:
Download the source kservicemenueditor-0.2a.tar.gz
There are debain packages avaiable!
Enable my PPA by adding the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/david.edmundson/ppa/ubuntu karmic main restricted universe multiverse
Then you can simply run:
sudo apt-get install kservicemenueditor
