"In this article, the steps you need to take to replace Kickoff
menu, the default menu style on Linux Mint 12 KDE, are presented in
an easy to follow manner. Like everything that goes on the KDE
panel, Takeoff Launcher has to be added as a widget. Before you get
to the stage to add the widget to the panel, the package has to be
compiled or built from source. Why from source? Because I could not
find a binary package for it for this distribution.
"If you have never built a package from source before, do not
fret. Building Takeoff Launcher from source is pretty easy. Just
follow the steps outlined in this article and you will complete the
whole process in no time. The screen shot below gives an idea how
the finished product looks like."
