Restore Menu In KDE Application

Since the last plasma vesion some KDE applications (Kontact, Kmail, Kate, …) lost their main menus. It doesn’t come from the « Global Menu » feature. Not directly.

Most of these applications have a ‘MenuBar’ option in their configuration file that you cannot access throught UI configuration.

Check if the configuration file raise up:

grep MenuBar\= ~/.config/k*rc

And enable all menus:

gawk -i inplace '{ gsub(/MenuBar\=Disabled/, "MenuBar=Enabled") }; { print }' ~/.config/k*rc
grep MenuBar\= ~/.config/k*rc

Now you can launch your favorite application and have the main menu back.
