Hi Carl,

I don't know what these are? So I'd guess 'stock'.

I have that same suspicion, but I haven't discerned it yet :)

Don't know, I'm afraid. 'Single standard' has a bit of a hollow ring in
the [U|Li]nux world!

I don't use KDE. I looked through the Applications menu on the desktop
but didn't find anything to edit the menu and I looked through YaST but
only found the Gnome Control Center, which AFAIK doesn't let me edit
menus. Do you know the name of the program you're thinking of so I could
start it from the command line, or even check if it's installed?

I don't even know whether these settings are system-wide or per-user
(I'd hope the latter :) but so far I haven't found the appropriate
config files in either /etc or my home directory.

Cheers, Dave
