Description Havoc Pennington 2002-07-24 00:36:56 EDT
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 
toplevel folders.

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
enviroment (kcontrol).

It could be fine if you could add it into redhat menus. Thanks

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-24 17:55:21 EDT
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.
