Description mxkennedy 2002-10-24 21:40:39 UTC
When icons are changed on desktop, the icons don't actually change until I log 
out and restart KDE again.  When a program is installed and a link added to 
the menus, or a program is removed, the changes don't occur in the menu until 
I log out and restart KDE again.  For instance, if I remove a program, its 
link will still be in the menu as a null link pointing at nothing until I log 
out and start KDE up again, at which point its menu name is removed. 
In the case of icons not being updated until KDE starts up again, refresh 
desktop doesn't help any. 
Reproduce: Always

yes, i can reproduce it too, it's a bug.

Comment 2 Petr Rockai 2006-07-17 18:29:34 UTC
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core 
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in 
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with 
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may 
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it 
back to NEW state.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-18 18:06:53 UTC
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.

Closing as CANTFIX.
