To get a more accessible menu switch to the classic menu and assign it a keyboard shortcut.

This page explains how to accomplish this.


  • Implemented text interface for KDE 4.9
    • Improvements and somewhat working text interface for 4.9.1


  • Selection updates often wrong.
  • Text added/removed signals not sent.


  • Improved in KDE 4.8, status unknown.


KDE's terminal application.

  • Currently the shell does not implement an accessible text interface.


  • Some unlabeled buttons.
  • The main display is not accessible.


  • Should give a basic list of git revisions at least.


  • Main views will stop working with KDE 4.8 because of the new itemviews.
