Description of problem:
Reinstalling quake3 results in no menu entries in KDE
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum -y install quake3
2. yum -y remove opengl-games-utils
3. yum -y install quake3
No menu entries in KDE
There should be menu entries
This is as a result of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=426764
After uninstalling opengl-games-utils and quake3 I removed all the ioquake3 and point release files/directories I could find.
What is the output of:
rpm -q --verify quake3
# rpm -q --verify quake3
# yum -y remove quake3
# yum -y install quake3
# rpm -q --verify quake3
Still no menu entries.
Shouldn't there be one under "games"?

> Shouldn't there be one under "games"?
Yes one called "Quake 3 Arena", and there is, atleast on all my testing systems.
You do not happen to have updates-testing enabled by default, do you?
To be sure, what is the output of: "rpm -ql quake3" ?
And what of: "cat /usr/share/applications/fedora-quake3.desktop" ?
My updates-testing repo is disabled.
# rpm -ql quake3
# cat /usr/share/applications/fedora-quake3.desktop
Name=Quake 3 Arena
Comment=Quake 3 Arena demo launcher, will automatically download the needed
I just installed alienarena, as a test - no menu entries there either.
I checked /usr/share/applications/fedora-alienarena.desktop - it looks very
similiar to quake3's.
Either it's a problem with my installation, a KDE problem or it's a KDE
Looks like a KDE problem to me, as those are both perfectly valid desktop files.
Changing component to KDE.
Try running kbuildsycoca --noincremental to see if it helps.
I just copied "kbuildsycoca --noincremental" to konsole and ran it.
No change in the (lack of) quake and alienarena menus.
Um, just installed quake3-1.34-0.6.rc4.fc8
No menu entry.
rpm -ql quake3 | grep desktop
no /usr/share/applications/fedora-quake3.desktop on my box.
looks like a broken build/pkg to me. Reassigning back to quake3
Looks like that's by design, it appears.
quake3-demo (or quake3-urbanterror or others) contain the .desktop files
fwiw, installing quake3-demo worksforme.
Then you either have updates-testing enabled, or are doing this under
development. The quake3 quake3-demo split is recent, to allow quake3 (the
engine) to be used by other packages without dragging in the demo .desktop file
and autodownloader stuff.
See comment #4 for clear proof that this isn't the case / issue in the reporters
case. Note BTW, that the same quake3.desktop shows up in KDE's menu just fine on
my system, iow I haven't been able to reproduce this.
Anyways ping-ponging right back to KDE.
updates-testing yeah, I'll try to reproduce without it. (but I doubt it).
If you can provide any additional information on how to reproduce, please do so
and reopen this.
