how to set a shortcut to open the k menu?


the standard launcher doesn’t allow to use qdbus to show itself , but it allows to set a shortcut

but if you plan yo use this in a script you could try to use this:

xdotool key alt+F1

the only way to get something of similar to what you have done with dcop it’s this : using lancelot laucher and creating a shortcuts with this command

qdbus org.kde.lancelot /Lancelot show 0 0

or

qdbus org.kde.lancelot /MainApplication org.kde.lancelot.App.show 0 0

    ? If the default shortcut (Alt+F1) does not fit your needs, why not simply change it? Right-click the K icon to get to the settings.
