Thread: KDE4 application search twice

    Question KDE4 application search twice

    hi,

    now I also installed suse linux 11.1 with KDE4. It works quite well but I have an issue.

    When I install software via yast I then have all results twice, if I make a search in the normal KDE menu. I had this also before but reinstalled my system. Now I have it again. I think yast calls some script that create this search results twice.

    The normal menu is free from such a unnice behaivior.

    I use this function quite often and would be happy, if there is any advice.

    Thanks
    Martin

    Are you saying if you use the search: It shows 2 instances of the application.?

    What if you navigate to the application location, are there 2 there?

    hi

    "The normal menu is free from such a unnice behaivior."

    no, if I browse, than every application is only once.

    If I use the upper search field in the same menu, the results are listed twice.

    Before my current configuration I installed KDE3 and KDE4 and though this was the reason. But now I only have KDE4 and it also happens.

    Thx
    Martin

    You could try going to Menu Editor (right click menu)
    Then - EDIT
    Restore System Menu

    Hi,

    thank you for this hint, but it seams not to work. Since I had an other serious problem I had to install again and again I have the same problem.

    directly after installation it works well, and after the online system update everything us twice for the search application.

    I could not find out, where this problem is coming from. Maybe some KDE4 update packages or the kernel?

    thx

    Right, and you will have .kde as well as .kde4. I would suggest this:

    Logout
    Hit Ctrl-Alt-F1
    Login with username and password, do this:

    mv .kde .kde.old

    Hit Ctrl-d to get back to login prompt
    Hit Ctrl-Alt-F7 to get to graphic login screen, login and see if Start Menu has changed behaviour.

    from where i sit it looks like you do not get everything twice, but
    instead get TWO DIFFERENT things, one for KDE3 and a *different* thing
    for KDE4..

    solution? backup all data then i'd try adding a new user and logging
    into that new user in KDE4 and NEVER log into KDE3 in that new user..

    if that doesn't work i'd try to delete KDE3 in YaST..
