Hi everyone,

after a lot of hesitation, I finally moved from kde 3.5.10 to 4.3.1. It
seems that it can now fit my needs !
I was just wondering if there was any way to configure the number of
recent documents that appear in kickoff or lancelot. That was an old
feature request for 3.x series where it was hard coded to 10 which is
few, and now with 4.3.1, it seems I can't get more than 9 items. Do I
miss something ?
Thanks in advance,

Maybe it still is hard-coded. I can't see any way to change it.

Have you tried Lancelot (in place of kickoff)? It has two columns - Recent
Documents and New. Recent Documents still has 9 entries, but maybe the New
column can extend this? At the moment it only has one in that column on my
system, so I don't know how many it can take. Anyway, it's worth a try.
FWIW, Lancelot retains the Search that was so useful in kickoff, but is, IMO
much better to work with. You can descend a tree by hovering, instead of
having to click, for one thing.
