KDE 3.5.5 upgrade lost a lot of content in KDE menu
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Upgrade to kdebase-3.5.5-0.1.fc6 caused a LOT to change in the KDE menu
organization. A LOT is missing. Specifically... all System Admin stuff is
gone... all Preferences are gone... no link to kcontrol... all of the sub-menus
that used to be in under some of the menus had disappeared.
I ran the kde menu editor but it crashed after I made some additions and tried
to save them.
This happened on FC5 as well after upgrading to the recently released KDE 3.5.5
packages. This along with the kcontrol Desktop -> Panel control blanked out
(reported elsewhere) make for a somewhat painful KDE ugprade.
If I wasn't detailed enough, feel free to ask questions.
Perhaps it was KDE's fault by having a problem parsing 3.5.4's ~/.kde/<settings>
but I doubt it.
could you please try following steps:
- login into KDE with your login name
- mv $HOME/.config HOME/.config.orig
- kbuildsycoca --noincremental
the menus should be ok after this action.
The menus were ok after that action. Thanks!
I also noticed it fixed the blanked out kcontrol Desktop -> Panel issue too.
Keep up the good work.
it's a bug in the old kde version which causes this issue. The bug is now
resolved in new kde version, but the side affect is that the user has to do
the obove steps once to get the menu back in some cases.
Thanks for your report
