Is it possible to run Konqueror shortcuts from here, as in "gg:some search terms" or "" ?

It is indeed. Try them - both work. I'll add that to the tutorial. I wonder how many other goodies you can discover? --annew 17:55, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

I regularly use a few files with Kate. I can use Krunner to launch each by typing "kate 'filename'" (only single quotes actually entered to allow for spaces in file names). Krunner remembers file names recently used, and because my most common ones begin with different letters, I can launch them by typing, for example, "kate 'f" and then tapping the End and Enter keys on the keyboard. If other files begin the same way, it may require a few more letters of the file name, but it isn't necessary to type out the whole file name. My files are not all in the same folder, either. --Algot Runeman 17:40, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Have the methods of Krunner changed? Experimenting with the unit conversion process in KDE 4.7 Kubuntu, I wasn't able to reproduce the examples. To convert feet to meters worked (= 6 feet) or (= 6 feet/meter) or (= 6 feet/yard) --Algot Runeman 18:11, August 2011 (UTC)

Works like a charm in KDE 4.6.3 (Mageia). Kubuntu 11.10 Live DVD shows the same behavior as you've mentioned. libkunitconversion was not changed this cycle, thus the problem is in Runner itself. Can you report it on

P.S. Please use liquid threads, do not edit the page itself.--Yurchor 07:22, 15 August 2011 (BST)

Arrow down widget

The status of the down arrow icon seems unclear. It is not present in the most recent release of plasma (see fx Neon User Edition). It is probably best not to mention features that most users can't use. When the arrow gets included in a regular release we can treat it properly.

Agree. Same here in Plasma 17.12.2. No arrow down so far.

it took very, very long time until the arrow came back, because I was the one complaining and pointing out the degradation of usability of KDE due to "trimming" / "streamlining" of that "bloatware?" arrow.

See my reply to you comment on Discover. My patience is wearing thin.

gRun - an alternative to KRunner

debian package gRun There is some criticism about KRunner, where users opine that the older versions were better (or faster) than the new ones. Some people do not like seeing the visible buttons disappearing in favour of hard-to-memorize hotkeys. They think that "hidden functionality" is a bad thing in a GUI. Hence some people run gRun instead, offering what one expects from it.

15:47, 26 September 2017

I don't know what to say to this. gRun is gtk software, so not remotely related to KDE. It doesn't seem to fit very well to our content. Could we have a discussion about this on the talk page before deciding to add anything?

05:13, 27 September 2017

hence it was merely on the discussion page - not the content page. I never intended to put it on the main page at all.

specific "running man" icon needed for KRunner

It would be very helpful if Krunner had an own specific icon - such as a "running man" - and an "About" window telling everyone it's name, i.e. "KRunner". Why does only everybody else have that ?

Typo causing 'invisible unit' to be added

I added some ancho points to this page and inadvertently added a couple of spaces to the < /translate> ... < translate> pair of one of them. This naturally results in a new translation unit being created (Unit 33). I corrected my typo, but could not find any code defining unit 33. It does appear in the translation system, though. Will it disappear automatically, now that the code has been corrected?

17:54, 8 September 2010

The unit will stay as long as an admin hasn't marked the new original for translation. This is done now. So it should be disappeared.

Thanks for the hint.
