I think the menu system is just there so one can see what's available. If
you know what you want to start, use KRunner instead. That is, hit Alt-F2,
and enter the name of the application. You don't even have to type the
full name, although in case of k3b the name is so short that you have to.
If you only type 'k3' KRunner offers conversion of 3 Kelvin to degrees
Celsius or Fahrenheit :-)
So KRunner does not only allow to start applications, but also to find
files, by name or by content when they have been indexed by Nepomuk. Or
emails, open windows and documents. Or audio files. It does calculations,
converts units, and much more. Have a look at:

One month ago, I got this mail. If you didn't get it, they really forgot
about you. But why can't you open a new account then... strange. You
probably should file a bug report... oh, whoops!
And I assume resetting the password also does not work? What about
creating a new accocunt with a different email address?


In the past you have registered on http://bugs.kde.org. This could be as
a user to report a bug or crash within a KDE application or maybe you
have registered as a contributor or developer for KDE software.

We have recently installed a new update of the bugzilla software and we
would like to ask you to reactivate your account. This can be done in one
simple step: login on the http://bugs.kde.org site. Your username is the
email address we have sent this email to.

If you don't reactivate your account before March 30th we will block your
account from logging in until the password reset feature is used to set a
new password.

Sorry for the trouble, but we hope you will enjoy the upgrade.
