Description Havoc Pennington 2002-08-15 14:55:35 EDT
If you install an app while KDE is running, it isn't getting picked up
in the menus; should rerun desktop-create-kmenu. It would be fine to just run
desktop-create-kmenu if a change is detected in /usr/share/applications
/etc/X11/applnk or /usr/share/applnk I think. (Those are the important
directories things are merged from.)
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2002-08-15 15:01:25 EDT
it's already done in current current kdebase.
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2002-09-04 12:59:10 EDT
Maybe this is how it is supposed to work, but I don't get the menu and kicker
updates until I log out and back into KDE.  This is with kdebase-3.0.3-11.  If
this is the expected behavior, then please close out.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-09-04 14:28:40 EDT
It should update immediately.
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2003-02-21 16:01:57 EST
it's a bug in kdelibs and fixed now in kdelibs-3.1-9.
