    Default Applications missing from KDE menu and file associations is not working

    Only "Favourites", "Run Command" and "Leave" is shown on the classic KDE menu, same thing when switching to Launcher Menu Style. Missing Applications and everything else. File associations is not working. Double clicking any type of file it asks to install the program and the known applications menu is empty.

    I tried to add a new user, same problem with that. I also noticed that when running Chrome it asks to be the default web browser each time even when I say yes.

    I have not been messing with anything, I suspect it happened during a update, but I got the exact same repositories on 2 other x64 machines where there is no problem.

    I'm using KDE 4.6.0 from the factory repository.

    I tried to reinstall some KDE4 packages without any luck.

    I do not want to reinstall the entire system or downgrade KDE.

    This is a very strange problem.
    Is this a new install, if so did you check the MD5sum before installing?

    If it's true that a new user has the same problem than I'm afraid the problem lies in your installation.

    Are you sure you need all these repositories?
    I recommend to only have the four basic repositories: Oss, Non-Oss, update and Packman.
    Having many repositories could cause problems like you have now.

    Best of luck!

    Default Re: Applications missing from KDE menu and file associations is not working

    his is not a new installation at all. If it were I wouldn't bother to post it here, I would just reinstall the system.

    The configuration has worked fine ever since I installed 11.3, and that was shortly after it was released.

    My guess is that it is either a configuration error or kde version conflict somewhere.

    I've been using these repositories for many opensuse versions with the exception of the google ones and kde-factory.

    I use kde-factory because I want KDE version 4.6 instead of the stock opensuse 11.3 which is 4.4. This was mainly because of some bugs in digikam which I use quite frequently, but I also discovered lots of other improvements, so going back to 4.4 is not an option.

    The repositories from buildservice rarely cause conflicts and they mainly contain additional packages or some updated versions of certain programs and inherit packages from the default repos.

    I'm not sure what repositories you are referring to? Are you referring to all of them? What is your definition of having many? Why should having many repositories cause a problem in KDE? Most of these do not contain components for kde.

    I'll explain why I need these.

    buildservice-games:

    Additional games such as eduke32, scummvm, pingus.

    buildservice-java:

    Updated versions of java.

    buildservice-kde-extra:

    Just kmess

    buildservice-mozilla:

    Updated versions of thunderbird and firefox.

    buildservice-openoffice:

    Only updated version of openoffice

    buildservice-perl:

    Additional perl packages.

    buildservice-webcam:

    Kernel modules for webcams. Only libv4l installed.

    buildservice-wine:

    Only wine installed.

    google-chrome:

    Only 1 packages installed, chrome

    google-earth:

    Only 1 package installed, google earth

    kde3:

    I need some kde3 packages and Amarok 1.4

    repo-contrib:

    Only some fonts installed.

    The buildservice-kde-updatedapps are obviously updates for KDE packages but it is not really in use at all since it is replaced by kde-factory. Only 5 packages are installed from this, same packages are installed on 2 other systems that work fine. Some this repository should have nothing to do with the KDE menu not working.

    There is no specific reason I have buildservice-education and buildservice-filesystems.

    Since you question my repositories I'll list what's installed from different repositories than oss, non-oss, update and packman. There are not many KDE packages in these except of course those in kde3.

    This is installed from kde-factory: http://filearchive.closetothewind.ne...de-factory.txt

    this may be redundant if you have tried this already, but in a konsole terminal, as user, issue

    kbuildsycoca4 -noincremental

    this should scan for all applications and produce menu entries, if there are fatal errors in running this process i would take the output to the IRC channel #kde on freenode for advice.


    in addition, the extra repos you have bring up the possiblity of breaking things, i.e. one build service repo that has some app you WANT, also has a custom version of something you have installed but is not necessary for the install of the app you seek. Therefore if a "update all" in yast2 installs anything that seems newer. Pardon me if i'm pointing out the obvious, just trying to be clear.

    good luck

    Hi.

    I have solved it. I did a a diff of "rpm -qa | sort" and checked what packages were different from a working machine, there were a few differences, I uninstalled a few packages including spotify which is not from a repo, and the menu is back. I think it was a broken menu item in /usr/share/applications, I suspect this had nothing to do with package conflicts.
