Description Chris Schanzle 2006-10-31 12:27:46 EST
After last night's update to KDE 3.5.5-0.1.fc5 on i386 (untested on x86_64, but
probably applies there too), the "f" menu has changed such that there is no
control center (kcontrol) item (yet the binary does exist) and a user who
customized their Desktop->Behavior to bring up a left-menu click has lost that
functionality (okay, that's two issues, maybe related, maybe not). 
Right-clicking on the "f" to bring up the menu editor (to try to add it back in)
does nothing.

Users are a bit miffed.

It happened to me too. The K menu is turned into a mess. Some apps disapeared
(kedit, kate, kwrite, kcontrol), others, that were in separated folders are all
together now. Some folders are gone and I have the folders in english now (my
system is configured to brazilian portuguese). Kcontrol doesn´t open the page to
configure the menus. Korganizer doesn´t load anymore. Maybe these are minor
bugs, but it disturbs the desktop functionality. Thank´s

Confirming. I would prefere to have this high priority as users start to complain.
Comment 3 Claudio Guimarães 2006-11-01 15:08:58 EST
Hy all. Try to open the K menu, right click a link, change any properties for
this link(Ex.: work folder for Korganizer changed to /usr/bin) and save. After
that I get my old organized K menu back and Kcontrol load all pages now. The
command line for Korganizer in K menu was "korganizer --import %u". Changed to
"korganizer" made it function again. The Korganizer attention call server in the
systray must be closed (right click - close). When you run korganizer it will
load again with no issues. Good luck!

Home icon too has disappeared from the apps menu, along with other features 
such as being able to adjust the screen res from the desktop -> configure 
desktop menu.

Possible solution here, that at least worked for me. Make a backup of first 
before trying it though.

1. Make sure your not logged into X, particularly KDE
2. Login on a virtual console as the user with the screwed menus.
3. Delete the .config directory (rm -rf .config)
4. Log back into KDE
5. open a shell and type: kbuildsycoca
6. Hopefully your menus will be fixed and your KDE settings preserved.
