I am still using the KDE-4.4 SVN BRANCH although I am a few days behind
due to GCC vs. GLibc vs. Linux header problems.
I have KDE-4.4.x installed in: "/opt/KDE-4", if you have it installed
in: "/usr", you might not be able to reproduce this.
I find a strange thing which I think might be a bug.
I have my XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable set to include:
/usr/local/Adobe/Reader9/Resource <- or where ever you have it.
I find that 'desktop' files in these directories do not appear in the
menu (KickOff). However, if I copy the 'desktop' files to:
they immediately appear in the menu and if the 'desktop' files have:
"Categories", they are in the correct place(s) (otherwise they are in
Lost & Found till "Categories" are added).
I note that: "/usr/share" is first in XDG_DATA_DIRS
I think that KickOff should scan all of the XDG_DATA_DIRS to find the
menu entries. Can someone please reproduce this? Do you think that
this is a bug?
