Description of problem:
All icons on KDE Panel are broken after upgrade from RH 7.3 to RH 8. The icon
displays as the kde gear. If I try to bring up properties for the icon I get a
KDE Panel error message such as:
The file /usr/share/applnk/System/konsole.desktop doesn't exist
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.log in using kde
Actual Results: icons on panel nonfunctional
Expected Results: icons should launch progams
Is there a fix I can apply across all users?
Problem is that in 8.0 the desktop files are installed under
/var/lib/menu/kde/Applications/. Some entries in your config file "kickerrc"
have wrong PATH.
The icons should usually not be showed if the desktop files are not found.
Could you send the $HOME/.kde/share/config/kickerrc to me, please? thanks
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.
Please close. This is ancient history. :)
