Re: Project idea for developer - check and clean up the default menu

On a related note,

"edutainment" and "miscellaneous" are the menus that have to be negociated to get to something like blinken or ktouch. These "words" (edutainment doesn't even exist - try expaining that to a grade 1 students working in his second language) are far too long and difficult.

When using KDE or Gnome, do you think that keeping Debian menu makes

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. :)
Why could not only the kde menu be
used, there are too many entries in the menu anyway,

 If there are entries, there is software that can be started from there.
Removing GUI access to software, so that it only is accessible from the
command line will not be considered a progress by our target users.

 Either a more sensible tree structure is called for, or some software
should be removed, plain and simple.  Hiding it is bad hygiene.

For common users, there are many programs not needed. For admins, on the other hand, there are a lot of programs that can be nice to have, but you don't necessarily need them in the regular menu. Setting different menus for different groups in kiosktool, just like the desktops are set do be different for students and teachers, could resolve part of the problem.
