From: alan at chandlerfamily.org.uk

Package:           kdevelop
Version:           2.0 (using KDE 2.2.0 beta1)
Severity:          normal
Installed from:    compiled sources
Compiler:          gcc version 2.95.4 20010319 (Debian prerelease)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.4.5-ac22
OS/Compiler notes: 

I built kdevelop from cvs (tag kdevelop_1.4) and did a make as my own users, and make install as root.

I used ./configure --prefix=/usr so that binaries get into /usr/bin rather than kde specific subdirectories.

The tool kimport gets copied into a directory

Within kdevelop running as a normal user - selecting project/generate project file ... menu selection.  Nothing happens.

When I was investigating I noticed that the tools directory (indeed all the subdirectories under /usr/share/apps/kdevelop) have owner/group of root and acces permissions of 700.  when I changed these to 755 my generate project file wizard worked.
