KDE services

openSUSE 13.1 64bit KDE

Under 12.3 KDE I had an audio converter service called “pacpl” that would show when I right-clicked on an audio file while using Konqueror as a file browser. Since I moved to 13.1 it doesn’t show in the menu any more. It’s located in /home/ion/.kde4/share/kde4/services and called pacpl.desktop. The contents are…

[Desktop Entry]Type=Service

[Desktop Action AAC]
Name=To AAC
Exec=pacpl --to AAC --gui %F &


What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

I’m not sure, but I think it should be in ~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/.

At least the system-wide ones (installed via rpm) are in /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/.

And you might have to run “kbuildsycoca4” (maybe even with the “–noincremental” option) to get it recognized.

Creating the new directory and moving the pacpl.desktop file into it worked immediately. Many thanks for the quick solution.
