Thread: Add application in "library" used by Krunner

  1. #1

    Default Add application in "library" used by Krunner

    Hi,

    I had to install Eclipse 3.5 without using Yast or zypper because i) version 3.5 is not packaged yet and ii) I needed 3.5 to work with a specific eclipse plug-in.
    The installation was a simple uncompression of an tar.gz archive. Now I would like to start eclipse from Krunner but it does not seem to know anything about my install (as expected!). My 2 attempts to make Krunner aware of my eclipse install did not work. What I have tried was:
    - add an alias in my .bashrc file
    - add a $PATH call to the eclipse directory in my .bashrc

    Any recommendation will be welcome.

    Thanks

    Sebastien

    When you want us to check if you did correct, pleae do not tell things like
    - add an alias in my .bashrc file
    - add a $PATH call to the eclipse directory in my .bashrc
    but show what yoou did. Like:
    I added
    Code:
    alias .....
    at the end of my .bashrc and what you did with PATH. Specialy the statement about ""adding a PATH call to a directory" is a bit cryptic.

    I'd add an entry in KMenu.

    Code:
    kmenuedit
    ...then do:

    Code:
    kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental
