Description of problem:
When clicking on Squid Configurator Icon in Control Panel, it points to wrong 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):kdebase-2.2.2-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on Control Panel
2.Click on Squid Configurator

Actual Results:  The path /usr/bin/squid-config doesn't exist.
Please install the package.

Expected Results:  The path should be /usr/sbin/squid-config and then it should 
bring up a menu to configure squid.

Additional info:

[root@homer root]# rpm -q squid-config

[root@homer root]# which squid-config

This is actually a bug in squid-config. 
It should provide a /usr/bin/squid-config -> consolehelper symlink, or it's impossible to 
start it as non-root.

Glad I did a query before entering this: someone's done all the hard work for
me. This has mutated in beta3 to the following:

Yes, I met "squid configuration won't run from nautilus". Desktop file 
refers to "Exec=/usr/sbin/squid-config". This is where my head started

[hobbit@bubble hobbit]$ /usr/sbin/squid-config
bash: /usr/sbin/squid-config: No such file or directory
[hobbit@bubble hobbit]$ rpm -ql squid-config | grep bin
[hobbit@bubble hobbit]$ ls -l /usr/sbin/squid-config 
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           13 Mar 24 15:46 /usr/sbin/squid-config
-> consolehelper

So the link's there now, but something's still not working.

Comment 3 Bill Huang 2002-03-26 02:56:59 UTC
The bug's been fixed in the RAWHIE.The package name is changed.
It is redhat-config-squid-0.5-4.

Now the workarround is below:
ln -sf /usr/bin/consolehelper /usr/sbin/squid-config

Comment 4 Jay Turner 2002-03-26 13:52:42 UTC
Reopening, as I still don't think this is right.  All of the config tools should
provide a link to consolehelper in order to start the configurator as a normal
user.  What we have now with squid-config is that you have to be root in order
to run it.  So, we need the package to provide '/usr/bin/squid-config' which is
a link to '/usr/bin/consolehelper'

Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-26 16:27:10 UTC
Adding myself to Cc to see whether or not squid-config should remain listed in 
kontrol-panel and kapabilities

Comment 6 Bill Huang 2002-03-27 03:43:09 UTC
jturner,you are right.The workaround should be:

ln -sf /usr/bin/consolehelper /usr/bin/squid-config

It is fixed in 0.5-5.

Comment 7 Bill Huang 2002-03-27 03:45:04 UTC

It is fixed in 0.5-5.

Comment 8 Bill Huang 2002-03-27 07:15:31 UTC
It is finally fixed in 0.5-6.
