    Default Sysinfo Icon not working after update to KDE 4.2.3

    I'm running Suse 11.1 with KDE 4.2.3

    I updated KDE 4.1.3 to 4.2.3 yesterday, via the KDE community repo. Since then my "MyComputer" for icon on the desktop stopped working.
    How do I fix this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not working, as in it's not there? Or not working as in, you click it and it crashes? Or not working as in, you click it but nothing comes up?

    The way to get to sysinfo is to open Konqueror and then in the address bar type

    sysinfo:/

    If you want to try to recreate the menu entry then you would right click on the application launcher and choose menu editor. Click new item and use these as the parameters:

    General Tab:
    Name: Sysinfo (Or whatever you want to call it)
    Description: (enter description, this is what will show up on the menu)
    Comment: (enter comment)
    Command:konqueror --select sysinfo:/

    And save it. You can then get into sysinfo from that menu entry.

    Good Luck,

    Thanks for your reply.

    When I click the icon, nothing comes up.
    After typing "sysinfo:/" into the Konqueror address bar, I get this message:
    Protocol not supported
    sysinfo
    Not sure what to do now.

    Could you please open up a terminal and provide the output of:

    Code:
    rpm -qa --last "*sysinfo*"
    and

    Code:
    rpm -qa --last "*konqueror*"
    Take Care,

    Ok, the readout for both commands is as follows:

    gila@cellar:~> rpm -qa --last "*sysinfo*"
    gila@cellar:~> rpm -qa --last "*konqueror*"

    The first one suggests you do not have sysinfo installed.

    Reinstall it via Yast and you should be able to view it.

    It should be something like

    kde4-kio_sysinfo-11.1.1-71.4
    kde4-kio_sysinfo-branding-respin-11.1.1-69.7

    You can choose whatever branding you want.

    Good Luck,
