Disable Global Menu per App


Is there any way to disable the global menu on a per-application basis?

Yes. Try something like KDE_NO_GLOBAL_MENU=1 kcalc.

They just need to discontinue the Global Menu app.

I tried this but it doesn’t work with QT Creator. The reason I need this is that every time I compile something, the menu disappears. I found a “solution”, but it is very inelegant.


qdbus org.kde.kded5 /kded org.kde.kded5.unloadModule "appmenu"
qtcreator &
sleep 3
qdbus org.kde.kded5 /kded org.kde.kded5.loadModule "appmenu"

Is there a better solution?

I like the global menu. It helps when using plasma on smaller monitors.

No, they don’t. It is one of the reasons I use KDE Plasma. :slightly_smiling_face:
