Web Browser Preferences in KDE Doesn't Work After Running Up2Date
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:01 EDT
Description of problem:
I wanted to set up the Flash Player plugin (that I'm using for Mozilla) for
Konqueror. According to Konquer's help, this is done by selecting, from the K
menu, 'Preferences | Web Browsing | Netscape Plugins'. Then you click a button
to scan for available plugins. I did this prior to running up2date and it
seemed to work fine. After running up2date, I get an error message: 'There was
an error loading the module. Possible Reasons: 1. An error occurred during your
last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control module. 2. You have old third party
oodules lying around.'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In KDE, select 'Preferences | Web Browsing | Netscape Plugins' from the K menu.
2. Click the button to scan for available plugins.
3. Close the form.
4. Run up2date -- an update of KDE must be included.
5. In KDE, select 'Preferences | Web Browsing | Netscape Plugins' from the K menu.
Form to scan for plugins.
reassigning to konqueror, though it might be a generic KDE issue. But
the konqueror folks know better than I do.
This sounds like a bug in the kde packages, not a up2date bug.
it's fixed in kde 3.1, which you can find it in rawhide.
