All icons on KDE Panel are broken after upgrade from RH 7.3 to RH 8. The icon

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.
