Thread: Screwed up kickoff application launcher in KDE, Suse 12.1

  1. #1

    Default Screwed up kickoff application launcher in KDE, Suse 12.1

    If I right click on the kickoff application launcher. I get to an "Edit Applications"
    program. I did the following.

    I added an entry for RealPlayer under Applications -->Multimedia-->Audio Player.
    I saved it and, as expected, it appeared in the launcher. However, it didn't
    launch the program, so I went back into the editor and deleted it. That also worked.

    But now, I have a problem. In the _launcher_, when I go to
    Applications --> Multimedia ONLY the Audio Player tab shows up
    (containing Amarok and Kaffine). Nothing else. But in the _editor_
    I can see all the other Multimedia tabs (CD/DVD Burning containing k3b; CD Player
    containing KsCD, etc). These tabs no longer show up in the launcher.

    I've tried moving things around -- no change. I thought maybe that I
    could create a new tab under Applications named Dummy and move
    everything over there. But when I create a Dummy tab using the editor
    under Applications it doesn't show up in the launcher either.

    I'll settle for restoring the launcher back the way it was before I started mucking
    with it. I have a backup of my /home directory but I have no idea what the
    path/name of the file is that I would need to restore.
