Seeing this when adding menu items with kmenuedit - as soon as I try to change the icon, kmenuedit crashes.

Same rpm versions as above.

adjusting summary to better reflect reality.
Comment 6 jim tate 2008-11-01 12:32:11 EDT
Rex what do you mean by "adjusting summary to better reflect reality." ??
I'm sorry but I don't understand that language . 
This problem is also causing problems with Icon for bluetooth not showing up on 
bottom Panel in KDE-4.
If i goto Gnome Desktop, bluetooth Icon is shown.

The mysterious "missing applications" are systemsettings modules, they can be found by running systemsettings.
Comment 8 Kevin Kofler 2008-11-01 12:42:08 EDT
Uh... please disregard my comment, looks like I'm thinking of another bug report (and I think Rex's comment is, too).

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

naw, just tried to reproduce on 4.1.85, and can't anymore, so let's mark this as fixed in kde42 (unless we find evidence to the contrary).
Comment 12 jim tate 2009-01-09 16:03:21 EST
It is fixed.
