KInitiator is a KDE-application which helps you manage your applications and documents. It is intended to keep your desktop clean from icons and lets you quickly call applications and documents without searching for them in the K-menu or in your file system.
Use the left menu to learn more about KInitiator. You will find a manual by clicking on Miscellaneous; and then choosing Handbook;. There's also a FAQ included in the manual.top

We decided to release KInitiator when it's ready for the 1.0 release. So, currently (november 7th 2003) there are no downloads yet. But we are working on version 0.8, so the release seems not to be far away ;-) .
As soon that there are downloadable packages, they will be offered at the projects download page at Sourceforge.net
For the impatient, there is the possibility to download KInitiator as sourcecode from cvs.
To do an installation from anonymous cvs, do the following:
cvsclient program installed
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/kinitiator -z3 co kinitiatorinto a command line shell. Simply press enter when you get promted for a password
cd kinitiatorto change to the new directory which now contains the sources of KInitiator
make -f Makefile.cvsto automatically create a configure-script
./configure --prefix=$(kde-config --prefix)to configure the sources
maketo build the binaries
suto get root privileges
make installto install KInitiator.
The development of KInitiator started in autumn of 2002 and is still in progress today (November 6th 2003).
We have done most of the work for implementing all features and do some interface polishing, add some features and try to fix as many bugs as possible.top
