    Default [OpenSUSE 11.1:Application Launcher] Entries duplicated

    Greetings !!

    I have a little problem with Application Launcher that displays, when I do a search typing for example sync in the search field on top, each entry two times !!!

    I searched for a .rc file or .xml or something that may confuse the search tool... but I'm yet not sure about the name of this widget (or the process) and which database it dig to find out the name of a particular application... I'm sure that there is a way to fix it up but I don't know where to look.

    The database may be located in ~/.kde, ~/.kde4, ~/.kderc, every where in fact but I really don't know which process is called when we search in the Application Launcher. I tried to find out klauncher but there is nothing but libraries and executables when doin' locate klauncher and as I say I'm not sure klauncher is the application I'm searching...

    My idea is to edit the database and delete the duplicated entries (doublons).

    If someone already has such issue and fixed it, can he/she give me the recipe ?
    Thank you !!

    If you create a new user account as a test.
    Does that have the same problem?

    I first drove my investigations to the user's space but switching to another user the issue is the same, so the issue is system wide.
    Any clues to concentrate the further investigations ?

    I came up blank. Though I have heard of it before.
    If it was 11.1 or not I can't recall and 11.1 is out of support - officially anyway.

    That's good news :{ lol

    When I see duplicated entries I think about a ressource file or a database that contains two times (I don't want to know how it happened) the same entries. Or two path completly identical, or a symbolic link mislocated that points to the same entry and it considers as a location where applications are listed.
    Maybe just delete this database or file may solve the issue as the application will fill up with new datas at the first new search.
    I think about caches also, to avoid searching and taking process ressources to display the same results, but I don't want to mess up the system (erasing caches normally won't but...).

    Switching to Classic Menu Style is a workaround as you don't have the search bar anymore, but sometimes this tool is very usefull (in the case you really don't guess in which category SuSE will put your new application ^^)

    I only have to know which kind of process is under the search bar and then I could find a way to fix it...
    I'm still exploring...

    Then use Alt+F2

    ALT-F2 does nothing, but I may disable it when I configured the shortcuts... and effectively nothing for ALT+F2 in the keybinding menu in Desktop Configuration/Keyboard and Mouse.

    Still diggin'

    kickoffrc contains the different items we can use with the Application Launcher in the kickoff mode...

    but still have nothing for the search bar...

    I really don't know how this search bar is working (calls to background utilities ? calls to a database ? read up files ?)
