Are you saying that


does not show up in your KDE menu? That would be odd.
Notice that the file does NOT contain "OnlyShowIn=GNOME".
Comment 2 Philip Ashmore 2007-12-31 07:45:18 EST
I just found it in

    KMenu --> Gnome --> Sound & Video --> Audacity

but it needs kmenu-gnome installed

KDE doesn't have a "Sound & Video" root menu entry - "Multimedia" would be the
nearest match.
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2007-12-31 16:56:50 EST
Then that's a KDE problem, because AudioVideo is the freedesktop
standard main category, and it is used in Audacity's desktop file.
It doesn't matter what name the menu is given. The underlying 
category is important.
Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2008-01-08 23:58:24 EST
Cannot reproduce with F8 and KDE. I did

  yum -y groupinstall kde-desktop

then created a user "kdetester" and logged in. I see "audacity"
and similar applications in the K > Multimedia menu. And:

$ rpm -q kmenu-gnome
package kmenu-gnome is not installed
$ rpm -qa | grep menu

The only possibilities I can think of are

 1. Problems with my installation
 2. hibernation gone wrong
 3. Hard disk problem
*4. Install from KDE live CD

* is the only one you could check.
