Hi!

I upgraded to KDE 5 this weekend, which was quite ok so far. The only thing I'm missing (or did not find yet) is a config file for custom links in a desktop panel.
As far as I remember from KDE 4, this was just a search for "where does it place the *.desktop files" and editing those files for the panel/adding files there.

Does someone know how this is handled in KDE 5?

What I want to achieve are launchers that run custom command lines, like e.g. start terminal already with new GNU screen, etc.

BR,
Markus

Desktop files are still in /usr/share/applications and ~/.local/share/applications, same as with KDE4. If you put a .desktop file there it should appear in the start menu and you can drag&drop it to a task manager plasmoid.

Thank you for that info! The drag and drop is working.

For me it seems like KDE 4 duplicated the *.desktop files to the ~/.local/share/applications folder, and KDE 5 doesn't (at the moment). So I misinterpreted the search results.
