SUSE Linux 10 comes with a handy search field in the Kmenu. With this your guide you can get it to gentoo using kde 3.5.4.
It searches inside kmenu and directs you to content as it's typed.
**You need to setup portage overlay first. See here: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Installing_3rd_Party_Ebuilds **
Download kicker-3.5.4-r1.ebuild here **Note: This is the official ebuild from portage, just added one line: PATCHES="$FILESDIR/$KMNAME-$PV-$PN-kmenu-search-box-suse.patch"
Copy the file to /kde-base/kicker/ inside your overlay directory
Download kdebase-3.5.4-kicker-kmenu-search-box-suse.patch here **Note: I don't know who made this patch but i don't think it's the official Suse patch.
Copy the file to /kde-base/kicker/files/ inside your overlay directory
Making a Digest:
cd to /kde-base/kicker/ in your overlay dir and do
|ebuild kicker-3.5.4-r1.ebuild digest |
Restart kde and you should see the searchbar in K-Menu
Im kind of a gentoo newbie and english isn't my native language so feel free to correct my mistakes
