Thanks for the quick reply. I tried copying and creating a symlink to
it, but no luck either way.
I did notice that when I copied the file, my 'kbuildsycoca' produced
kbuildsycoca: new: /opt/kde/v3.5.7/share/applications/kde/kcontrol.desktop
However (pulling from the thread referenced above), when I issue
ktradertest Application '' "DesktopEntryName=='kcontrol'"
I get the following:
query is : Application
genericServiceType is :
constraint is : DesktopEntryName=='kcontrol'
preference is :
kio (KSycoca): Trying to open ksycoca
kio (KTrader): query for Application : returning 0 offers
got 0 offers.
So something still isn't picking up that kcontrol.desktop file.
