  1. KDE 3.4 on Mdk 10.1 - Menu issues

    Hi all -

    Well, my upgrade of KDE3.4 (from our friends Thacs) is largely successful
    but I find that I have a couple of issues - which, annoyingly, weren't
    there in RC1. Ah well.

    First, my menu is weirdly displaying some things (targets) twice. For
    example, under System/Terminals I see two entries for RXVT, and so on.
    I've tried editing the menu but to no avail. I suspect there is some old
    code in there somewhere.

    Second, quite a few menu items disappeared altogether - mostly Mdk
    specific entries such as configuration items. I noticed this after
    menu-xdg got updated so I reverted to menu-xdg-4 to no avail.

    Third, kdelibs-common-3.4.0-2 (and it's libraries) screwed things up very
    badly indeed. One outcome was that I couldn't login from KDM. I reverted
    to the 3.4.0-1 version and this is now fixed as a result.

    Fourth, kmail takes ages to load. Sometimes it doesn't load at all until I
    have rebooted.

    Any ideas folks? The new version is rather excellent on the whole so I
    wouldn't want to think badly of it because of the above issues.

    Ta - J

    Sorry to follow up own post...

    I rebooted fully (power off/on) and my menu's are back to normal. Fixed, I
    think, by the menu-xdg reinstall. Which is odd because I rebooted after
    that.

    Kmail is also quicker now but it's gone from my panel. Sheesh.

    J.

    Where did you get the packages ?
