Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 221000
qt-config menu entry is broken because qt-config binary isn't installed to the path
Last modified: 2008-03-07 09:57:20 EST
Description of problem: The .desktop file tries to run 'qtconfig' but that
binary isn't installed in the path so it won't launch.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): qt-config 1:3.3.7-0.1
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install qt-config
2. Click System-Preferences-More Preferences-Qt3 Config
Actual results: "Could not launch menu item
Failed to execute child process "qtconfig" (No such file or directory)"
Expected results: qtconfig launches
Additional info: $ rpm -ql qt-config
So the .desktop file needs to look in /usr/lib64/qt-3.3/bin/ for qtconfig or
qtconfig needs to be installed the path, I guess
Still a problem in F7 Test 4
The same thing in F8 with package version 3.3.8-9.
Reported on a local mailing list. Raising priority and making a blocker -- this
is easy enough to be fixed in twenty seconds either by the maintainer himself,
or by permitting cvsextras commits.

Patch for spec file
Patch which changes path in .desktop file for qtconfig.
problem is that /usr/lib64/qt3/bin is not set in your PATH enviroment. If you
install qt-devel on you machine, it will fix the problem. Your patch fixes the
problem but causes multilib issue!
The problem is now fixed in rawhide.
