Description Marcus Watkins 2004-05-28 15:45:57 EDT
Description of problem:
kmenuedit does not update the menu. (as a normal user)
Seems to create .desktop files in ~/.local/share/applications/ but if
you exit out of kmenuedit (after saving) and go back in, changes are
not made. Menus are not updated either.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Newly installed FC2 after running up2date.

How reproducible:
Try to edit the menu in KDE on FC2

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open kmenuedit
2. Create new subitem under a previously existing folder
3. Save
4. Changes won't be reflected
Actual results:
Change not made

Expected results:
New menu item exists.

If you delete the ~.config directory.  Start a KDE session, saving 
seems to work.  If you start a gnome first then KDE, the saving does 
not work.  Greg

yes, remove $HOME/.config, it's a workaround for this problem.

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2004-07-05 05:58:48 EDT
it seems it's fixed in current KDE 3.3 Beta 1. It works fine for me
with 3.3 Beta1
