Description Warren Togami 2003-02-06 06:53:47 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030203

Description of problem:
kdebase .src.rpm SOURCES/kcmnspluginrc:
[Misc]
scanPaths=/usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1/plugins,/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins,/usr/lib/netscape/plugins,$HOME/.netscape/plugins,/usr/local/netscape/plugins,/opt/netscape/plugins,/opt/netscape/communicator/plugins,/usr/lib/netscape/plugins-libc5,/usr/lib/netscape/plugins-libc6,$MOZILLA_HOME/plugins
startkdeScan=false
useArtsdsp=true

The hard coded Mozilla path hasn't been updated since Psyche.  This could be
fixed easily with another change, however is there any cleaner and more
permanent solution?

(I already tried using wildcards, doesn't work in Konqueror's nspluginscan.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdebase-3.1-4.src.rpm

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Konqueror

Actual Results:  
Mozilla plugins don't work because they are not in the default plugin scan
directories.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla's plugin directory should be within the default plugin scan directories.

mozilla should have a symlink to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. It could be a clean
solution.

anyway, it's fixed in 3.1-5
