Install ROSA Launcher on Fedora 18 KDE

SimpleWelcome is the default menu on ROSA Linux KDE. Like the Takeoff Launcher, it is a fullscreen menu, but with a few more features.

This article shows how to install and use it in place of the Kickoff Menu, the default menu style on Fedora 18 KDE (Spherical Cow).

The package is already in the repository, so you do not have to do anything special. Just install it from the command line or via Apper, the graphical package manager on Fedora. From the command line, typing yum install rosa-launcher will install it. Searching for “rosa” in Apper will also help you to install it.

Installing it is the first step. The next step is to add the widget to the panel. To do that, right-click on the panel and select Panel Options > Add Widgets.

Typing “simple” in the search field should bring up SimpleWelcome in the search result. Double-click it to add it to the panel. If you like your new menu, you may now remove the Kickoff menu from the panel.

This is SimpleWelcome’s Welcome tab. By default, the Recent Applications section is empty, but it will be gradually populated as you launch and use applications.
