General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=rodocop] Hi [b]Goatmilk[/b]! I'm really glad to greet our new brother with such a high loyality to KM in general and to KM Twin in particular! Let's try to cut your ropes now! ;-) [quote=Goatmilk] The Twin cannot render my favorite search page at http://www.google.com/advanced_search , whereas the old 1.5.4 can.[/quote] Just [u]untick[/u] [b]Tools -> Privacy -> Block Advertisements[/b] - and your problem will be gone! That was my stupid mistake to set it on by default in Twin build. ====================================================================== [quote=Goatmilk] The bookmarks menu has a lot of entries I'd wish to get rid of, like a link to 'options', 'Bookmark Importer', 'Bookmark backup' and a row of 'Bookmarklets' entries. I don't use bookmarklets and guess I can go to the settings for options and imports, so those could all vanish. I have a lot of bookmarks and would like to keep everything I don't need out of the menu. All I want would be 'edit' and 'add' and my bookmarks. How would I go about that? Oh, and how could I move the separators? [/quote] 'Bookmark Importer', 'Bookmark backup' are items provided by KM extensions. Youa can • a) [i][u]safest option[/u][/i] open [b]Preferences -> Macro Extension[/b] and untick there in list '[b]bookmarksbkup[/b]' and '[b]kmbimporter[/b]'. Then restart; • b) launch [u]KM Extensions Manager[/u] [img]http://f3.s.qip.ru/bmdN1JF7.png[/img] and uninstall corresponding extensions from there by the name; • c) go to [b]macros[/b] subfolder in KM dir and delete 2 corresponding [b]kmm[/b]-files ====================================================================== [quote=Goatmilk] Twin offers to 'send the page to trident' and there it works, but unfortunately this mode brings up all the loathed Internet Explorer stuff for all the following pages, like security infos at every step, warnings to click away and whatnot. It IS IE and there seems to be no way to get out of that mode, I guess I'll never use it again. [/quote] I haven't any heritage in case of using Trident tab. I think you have some troubles with IE itself. Try to [b]update[/b] it to the latest possible version - it's highly recommended for security reasons even if never use IE (it just presents in your system). For XP you need IE 8 with all updates. ====================================================================== [quote=Goatmilk]Funny thing is that there are a row of entries in the 'Edit' and other menus where I can click but nothing happens - like 'Configuration' and then 'Menus'. I have the sinking feeling this could be what I would need...[/quote] Yes, Twin could have some problems here as I'm not pro but the amateur 'build developer' ;-) This problem usually is connected with file association error for type CFG in your system. [b][color=#CC0000]Look[/color][/b], Accelerators and Menu are (like almost all config options in KM) just files in your profile folder - accel.cfg and menus.cfg. If you don't know where it is stored - look there: [img]http://f3.s.qip.ru/bmdN1JF8.png[/img] This shows the path to your profile folder (well, it also stores cache, of course!) So feel free to go there (with KM closed previously) and edit those files in any text editor. But you cannot delete smth from built-in menus there - only add some user items. And sure you'll need enough knowledge about syntax and how to mark up menus in KM. It's not very simple deal so don't be disappointed about these being not working :D ====================================================================== [quote=Goatmilk]Windows refuses to accept Twin+ as default browser, and won't even list it in the browser list of 'Set programs access and defaults'. I reckon this is because it is portable; running 'Setdefault.exe' didn't help. I tried to copy the whole Twin+ folder over the K-Meleon folder, with the result that neither would start anymore. Luckily I did it under TimeFreeze so the mess was easily undone. Any hint as to how I could change that would be great.[/quote] [i]You cannot[/i] set any portable browser as default with Windows tools. But this doesn't mean that you cannot [b]make Twin your default[/b] at all! :drool: Thanks to comrade [b]adodupan[/b], KM Twin has in-built set-default functional (without need of SetDefault.exe) - just open [b]Preferences -> Browsing[/b] and press '[b]Set as default browser[/b]' button. You got it! But moreover - to be sure this setting is saved (and as for me - to have the possibility of fast default browser switching) I use [url=http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Mouser/browsertray/]Browser TraySwitch[/url] little free piece of software solving this problem and guaranteeing that my settings are saved. Very useful and convenient! Try this! [b][color=#990000]Take your best with K-Meleon![/color][/b][/quote]
