Frequently used applications over recently used, kmenu setti

For the life of me, I cannot find any way to turn OFF the useless most recently used applications and enable to much more useful Most FREQUENTLY used applications.
[ heck, I can't even run a distro that has been released in last 3 years, they require more hardware than my comp has, as in: there is no way to quadruple the ram to meet minimum ram requirements of new releases, 2 gigs is maxed. ]

and yeah, I'm talking the classic kmenu style, the kickoff/lancelot type menus just do not work for me.
to much jumping crp in the menus, to difficult to find apps with everything shifting around and changing.

Which version of KDE are you using?

Mandriva 2010.2's default, KDE4.4.5
and the distro version no longer getting supported so any updates have to be me compiling from sources.
[ I detest the bad, massive data transfer requirements, of git. ]

I see. Unfortunately due to the way the system has bee designed it is not possible to switch it to storing frequently used applications instead of recently used ones. The best workaround which can be provided is ensuring it will startup with the same list of applications on each login i'm afraid.

doesn't surprise me, designed for poor performance and un-usability is thew latest trend, jusrt look at how badly designed chromium browser is for user interface.

Please follow the KDE Community Code of Conduct when posting on the forums - http://kde.org/code-of-conduct.

Do note that the code for recently used and frequently used applications would be completely different, hence why it isn't possible - as nobody has implemented it.
