No menu for Scribus
Last modified: 2008-10-14 13:38:51 EDT
Description of problem:
No menu available for scribus after installation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Look in Application/Office
No menu for Scribus
Scribus should be available
I can confirm that in F9 a menu option did appear.
The problem is here - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/scribus/devel/scribus.spec?r1=1.31&r2=1.32
But the real cause is in upstream because they install only a KDE desktop file and not the global one - see toplevel CMakeLists.txt, line 680

on another system I found the menu in Application/Other.....

Antonio, what are your desktop environments - GNOME, KDE, ...? Both machines are using Rawhide?
Both machine are using Rawhide, and both machine Gnome.
I have found also that on same machine where scribus missing, one user has no Gnome Images Manipulation Program (i.e. Gimp) entry (missing even in available entries in System/Preferences/Menu ...while other users have it.
And on same machine I do not have Trasbin applet to be added to bar in applet list.
I do not know whether these issues are connected (see also my messages in Development list)
forgot to say that on one machine scribus is missing for all users....
So new version is being built for Rawhide - scribus-1.3.5-0.5.12516svn.fc10
note for Andreas:
When the KDE-only desktop will need to be installed for some reason then we must add Requires: kde-filesystem for the ownership of /usr/share/mimelnk/application directory.
/usr/share/mimelnk is essentially obsolete. It is used for KDE 3 file associatins, but KDE 4 ignores it for file associations. And it definitely should not be used for menu entries, not in KDE 3 nor in KDE 4.
