With education-menus blinken is in "various" and Gcompris is not in
games, but in in a section I called "Education/Kids", with some other

       </Menu> <!-- End Kids -->

:-) , I forgot to say those videos are recorded on etch. On Lenny there
is some small improvements.

Well, maybe it's a never ending question, as it depends on every person:
I don't like the way gnome does it: you need quite often to explore four
menu branches (System tools, Utilities, System/preferences and
System/administration) to find where the damn configuration is... In
LinEx we developed a controlcenter classified by categories (Screen,
network, external devices, etc..) to replace the Gnome menu ;-)
Anyway, as you said, that's something you should complain at KDE devel.
