F10 Wine Installation does not create Programs Folder in Launcher
Last modified: 2009-03-24 11:27:04 EDT
Description of problem: After installing wine, go to launcher, select "Wine", there should then be a folder called "Programs" which then contains all the installed applications so you can click-on to launch. "Notepad", "regedit", "Wine Configuration", etc. appear, but no "Programs" folder. I don't know exactly when this started, but occurs with the version referenced below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install wine using yum repository
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install wine using yum repository
Installation completes, but no "Programs" folder in launcher
Normal completion with "Programs" folder in launcher.
By "launcher" you mean the panel menu?
You may want to edit the menus and make sure that the Programs entry under Wine isn't hidden
1. Right click on then Menu applet in the panel
2. Select "Edit Menus" Click on Wine
On my system, I currently have 2 Wines, one with Wine default launchers and a programs, one is just a programs. I manually edited some shortcuts in ~/.local so I had to "unhide" mine.
Yes, I press the KDE Application Launcher, select applications, then wine. There should be a "Program Folder" icon there to select. It isn't there. This was from a new install of wine using the version listed above. I have multiple systems, on the ones where wine was previously installed, the Program folder exists. I don't see anything in ~/.local to fix this. It appears something was introduced which doesn't create the folder properly for new installs. Doesn't look like it applies to upgrades.
