Please note that the make install of kolourpaint places the desktop file
in /usr/share/applications/kde/ and not in /usr/share/applications which
should be used following the freedesktop standard (so it works in freedesktop
compatible windowmanagers like kde and gnome). Now it only works in kde i

Please also note that the Categories should contain 'Application' within the
desktop file to be freedesktop compatible.


I think both of these issues affect most KDE apps, not just KolourPaint.
