    Post Removing KDE 4 Kickoff Kubuntu.org Link

    Hello, I am hoping my question will be answered here I have spent the past 4 days searching and talking to people and no one has an answer with direction just keeps telling me to try to contact ubuntu package developer....so my question I am sure is simple to someone, how do I remove the kubuntu.org image and link from the KDE 4 Kickoff menu? Even changing it would be okay, I just really do not want the bulging logo to be part of my start menu. Can someone please help?

    You can right click it and a menu would show up where you can choose your icon. Sorry can't give more details since I am not logged in to kde right now.

    Pretty sad to see no movement. I just thought that I should let people know I discovered how to do it by googling around a bit out of the box questions. Follow these helpful links and you will be fine if you need to do this as well.

    Step 1.

    Step 2.

    Step 3.

    If you do all those in that order you will be okay and everything should change, the image and link...of course you could completly null the image and link as well if that is what you are looking to do as well.

    I have managed to change the default www.kubuntu.org link in the kickoff menu launcher (and display logo) only after renaming or deleting these files
    /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde4-profile/default/share/apps/desktoptheme/default/widgets/branding.svgz
    /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde4-profile/default/share/apps/desktoptheme/oxygen/widgets/branding.svgz

    adding
    [Branding]
    homepage=http://www.example.org/
    in /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/oxygen/metadata.desktop , /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/metadata.desktop , ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/default/metadata.desktop and

    replacing /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/widgets/branding.svgz and /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/oxygen/widgets/branding.svgz
    with logo of my own choice.
