KDE displaying items not in applications.menu
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
KDE is merging in menu items from somewhere other than applications.menu.
These all need to be eliminated.
Examples: Tons of subfolders under Preferences, Applications/Development/Utilities
Nothing should be pulled in from outside of /var/lib/menu/kde - if you
need something from elsewhere, ask me to add it to applications.menu in
KDE still merge items from /etc/X11/applnk and /usr/share/applnk. All current
KDE packages have desktop files in /usr/share/applications. If you see
subfolders under Applications/Development/Utilities, you still have old packages
which contain old desktop files.
The Preferences folder has following subfolders:
If you take a look under /usr/share/apps/kcontrol/applnk/Preferences
you will see these subfolders.
They contains over 90 subprograms for kcontrol, which can only start in KDE
It could be fine if you could add it into redhat menus. Thanks
KDE should not be merging from /etc/X11/applnk, because desktop-menu-tool
already did that merge. So KDE is re-merging and doing it incorrectly.
Go ahead and remove this merging, and the preferences merging, so we can see
what the real situation is and not get confused. Then we'll add the prefs and so
forth to redhat-menus.
i removed merging old kde menus in kdebase-3.0.2-7.1 or new
Fixes look good with kdebase-3.0.3-10.
