Hi all,

I've written a script that adds the items in the K menu to the Windows Start
Menu. For example you can launch Konsole by clicking
Start->Programs->KDE->System->Konsole. You need to have KDE-Cygwin installed
You can download the script here:
unarchive it in /.
You need to edit /bin/kde3.cmd to point to your Cygwin installation (it
defaults to D but yours is probably on C). Then run kdeshortcuts. The script
will add all your KDE programs to the Start Menu in a program folder called
"KDE". If you install more KDE programs later, simply re-run the script.
X is launched automatically in /bin/kde3.sh with the -multiwindow flag. You
can edit that file to change the options passed to X if you so desire.
