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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade from FC1 to FC2
2.try to start KDE
3. no apps in menu, nothing in .kde directory.
I can send you my .kde or install log if this helps
you have restart your KDE after you have upgraded to FC2.
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.
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?
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?
