KDE update loses Control Centre
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:37 EST
Description of problem:After update to KDE to kdebase.i386 6:3.5.3-0.4.fc5 the
KDE Control Centre is missing, and the icon list in the K menu is not right.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):kdebase.i386
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start KDE desktop
2. Open K Menu
3. See that there is no Control Centre Option
Actual results: No Control Centre
Expected results: There should be Control Centre
Additional info: It was fine in the previous version.
It seems your local setting has caused this problem. Please try following
steps to fix this problem:
- remove the directory $HOME/.config
- restart KDE, you should probably start kbuildsycoca afterthat
Does it work again?
I followed your instructions - and removed the directory .config and restarted KDE
This did not fix the problem, but after running kbuildsycoca then the K menu
seems better apart from the fact that IO now no longer have my Crossover menu
nor the associated Menu for Windows apps. Also this did not re-create the
The control centre menu was there after running kbuildsycoca but I had to
re-install Crossover to get the Crossover menu back.
There seems to be a problem with this KDE update release - but also an
incompatibility with Crossover which has never occurred before now. However
perhaps others are seeing this problem even without Crossover being installed. I
therefore think this is quite urgently in need of a fix.
Your menu setting has been lost in this case after removing the directory
$HOME/.config. I will push new kdelibs package into fc5-update-testing today.
It should resolve this issue.
Thanks for your report,
The new kdelibs package (vers 0.4) fixes this and all is now well - so this bug
can be closed.
