Description of problem:
All of my KDE applnks are gone after upgrading from FC1 to FC2.  My
menus are now empty, and when I look at .kde, there is no sign of the
links there either.  I have deleted the /tmp/links that have caused
problems in the past.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC 2 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade from FC1 to FC2
2.try to start KDE
3. no apps in menu, nothing in .kde directory.

Additional info:

I can send you my .kde or install log if this helps

you have restart your KDE after you have upgraded to FC2.

Comment 2 Greg Mader 2004-06-24 23:28:06 UTC
I did that.  Did you even read what I did?  This upgrade smoked all 
of the links from the apps to the menu.  It did not rebuild them when 
I tried to restart.

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2004-06-25 18:48:39 UTC
yes, i did. The KDE-3.2.x in FC2 now supports the vfolder instead
workaround in FC1. That means that all desktop files in
/var/lib/menu/kde are obsoletes. with KDE-3.2.x, the desktop files
will be in /usr/share/applications/.

does this problem still showup if you logins with a new user?

Comment 4 Greg Mader 2004-06-25 23:53:15 UTC
Yes.  One small point of interest is that this machine has been 
upgraded several times, from RH 7 or so.  Could existing files have 
crufted it up?
