Thread: Cannot locate virtualbox in konsole

  1. #1

    Default Cannot locate virtualbox in konsole

    I've install virtualbox and got it working.
    In KDE, the normal Alt-F2 -> virtualbox will start virtualbox

    However, when I login to openbox or fluxbox, I am unable to get virtualbox started.

    Curious, re-login into KDE and virtualbox can be started as normal.
    However, in konsole, when I try to locate virtualbox, I am unable to locate it.

    # zypper search virtualbox

    Seems like I've missed this during the listing

    /usr/bin/VirtualBox

    and that Linux see a difference between small and cap letters.
    my bad


    THANKS.

    Normally, openbox should display your virtualbox in its menus... unless
    • the file /usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop contains the line OnlyShowIn=KDE;
      I don't know if the OSE version's desktop file is lowercased - I use the PUEL version. If not it will be either capitalized or camelCased (VirtualBox.desktop)
    • or the shell script /usr/bin/openbox-pipemenu is missing (unlikely)
    • or the environment variable XDG_DATA_DIRS has not been set before openboxe's start.
      In these two later cases, the Applications menu would be empty
