Description of problem:
When starting kudesigner, nothing happens.
Could this be the same problem as a similar bug in kdevelop (http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=114393)? The bug in kdevelop prevents that program from starting because it looks for a picture file for the splash screen and doesn't find it where expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. type kudesigner in konsole
Actual Results: nothing
Expected Results: kudesigner window, file selection window or at least splash screen should have appeared.
I tested this on another machine with FC4 for i386 with the same [lack of]
Yes same here... I will wait for someone upstream to comment on this ...
same with 1.5 beta1...
if you wnt to try it out for fc4 rpms can be found here:
I don't think this is related to the kdevelop report. strace'ing the kudesigner
process isn't very helpful either. ??
I'd file a report upstream against koffice/kudesigner to see what they have to say.
Already did... see external BZ ref below :)
same with 1.4.95...
same with 1.5.0-rc1
Had a hunch today and found the cause (I'm using koffice-1.5.0 final),
and now it works (for me). I think it has something to do with kudesigner's
(as well as many koffice components) extensive use of kparts and their def's
in the .desktop file.
Might not be a bad idea to change all the desktop-file-install's to use
--vendor="" instead of --vendor="fedora". Defining the vendor here is only
really warranted when there isn't one already clear/defined anyway.
Ah great news, altough I find this _very_ strange. I will fix it with the 1.5.0
final push (could you send me the sources?!)
Hm, for the vendor part => don't know because the rpm os provided by fedora and
I got the impression that koffice folks want bug ect to go here... and this
would make it more clear that the users koffice is coming from fedora...
