An Ubuntu HUD-Style menu launcher for KDE is in development.

The project adds additional AppMenu features to the KRunner tool that allows users ‘to look and execute menu bar actions’ of the in-focus application using the keyboard.

The developer has demoed his work so far in the following YouTube Video.

The developer hopes that the AppMenu Runner will appear in the KDE Plasma Workspace 4.9 release.

Eager testers can clone the source-code from git://anongit.kde.org/scratch/afiestas/appmenu.git

Packages for Kubuntu are said to be currently ‘in progress’.
