I have an application menu tree that I've used for several years
under an older KDE version, and now I'm trying to get it to work as
a "Legacy" menu under KDE 3.2.2 on Fedora Core 2. It's just a tree under
/etc/X11/applnk, like this:
| |-- InstantMessaging
| |-- Mail
| `-- News
..... and so on.
Each directory has a .directory file, giving the name. Within the directories
are *.desktop files. I'd like to take this tree, update it for FC2, and use
it as part of a new standard configuration for our department.
My original thought was to edit /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu
so that it only contained the following:
<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN"
I thought that "LegacyDir" would do the right thing, and create the
desired menu tree. Unfortunately, what I end up with is a start menu
with no aplications at all.
Running "kbuildsycoca --menutest --nosignal --noincremental"
results in no output other than "kbuildsycoca running...". (If I use
the default applications.menu that comes with FC2, I get the expected
list of menu items.)
Can anybody point me in the right direction?
