I do not know.  It seem to have more packages than the KDE menu.  I
guess I would like to see them merged, and both cleaned up to make
sense. :)

And for the desktops menus, using education-menus package ???(with
users in the students and teachers groups) the structure is pretty
clean in Gnome or KDE.

Good to hear.  I need to test it.  But I do see this as a workaround
for bad menus in the Debian packages, and hope we can help make the
default Debian installation better.  My proposal is for that.  We will

Happy hacking,

Imho it should be possible to edit the actual menu showing on users desktop through kiosktool (kmenuedit). Kiosktool is a good graphical tool to make different changes to the desktop. You could easily create different menus and desktops for different groups e.g. one for 1-3rd grade, and another for 4-7th and so on. Today this works only partly, because of the not working kmenuedit. Why could not only the kde menu be used, there are too many entries in the menu anyway, and I can't see why the kde menu could not be edited to suit the needs. But then again - there might be a lot of things about these menus I don't know about...
