The option has been removed, the menu service hould automatically start when a
menu plasmoid or window button is added.

Holy Moly! After I removed dbus from my system, essentially wrecking it,
leaving my laptop unusable, and downloading deb by deb from another laptop, I
got it up again - wow

qdbus org.kde.kappmenuview now outputs

ok, winston do you have an icon that looks like = (but with three lines) in
your window decoration?

If so, you can choose to remove it from systemsettings -> appearance -> window
decorations ->buttons


If not... can I see your ~/.config/kwinrc?

I cannot see the icon in my window decoration. I am using the active window
control widget, if that helps. Attached is my kwinrc file. Thanks for helping

There isn't meant to be an option there.

The (alleged) but is not having menus in apps, whilst claiming not to have the
global menu plasmoid / app menus turned off in window decos.
