OpenSUSE :: Applications Missing From KDE Menu And File Associations Is Not Working?

Feb 17, 2011

Only "Favourites", "Run Command" and "Leave" is shown on the classic KDE menu, same thing when switching to Launcher Menu Style. Missing Applications and everything else. File associations is not working. Double clicking any type of file it asks to install the program and the known applications menu is empty.

I tried to add a new user, same problem with that. I also noticed that when running Chrome it asks to be the default web browser each time even when I say yes.

I have not been messing with anything, I suspect it happened during a update, but I got the exact same repositories on 2 other x64 machines where there is no problem.

I'm using KDE 4.6.0 from the factory repository.

I tried to reinstall some KDE4 packages without any luck.

I do not want to reinstall the entire system or downgrade KDE.

Ubuntu :: Application Bar Menu Items Missing?

May 12, 2011

My application bars are all missing their menu bars. They were showing up (along with the application title) on the top panel but I ran 'nohup gnome-panel' to at least make my system partially usable (i.e. this restores the top panel and the bottom 'bar' that has the running application icons and it also restored my close/minimize/maximize buttons to my windows).

OpenSUSE :: Kde 4.6 Right-Click Application Menu?

May 29, 2011

In recent versions of KDE4, I have been able to assign the application menu to the right mouse button. In 4.6, the only thing that appears is Desktop Settings. Does anyone know when the fix for this will be included in KDE 4.6 updates? And, is it possible to move to a previous version of KDE in 11.4?

Ubuntu :: Getting To The Bottom Of Application Defaults File Associations

May 13, 2011

On Ubuntu 11.04, I have a need to use gnome-open from another application to open files in assigned applications. I think I understand how mime types are given in /usr/share/mime. I understand how default application associations are done in /usr/share/gnome/applications/defaults.list. I understand how update-desktop-database is used to maintain defaults.list. I know how to specify file associations (open with) from Nautilus. I understand how ~/.local/share/applications and ~/.local/share/mime override the system settings. I get all that.

What I don't understand is why the command gnome-open or double-clicking a file in nautilus, for certain file types (e.g. PDF), generates an error message:


Could not display "<whatever file>". The location is not a folder.

The occurrences of application/pdf in the different applicable files all point to evince as the associated application.

By the way, mimeopen does work. What is the relationship between mimeopen and gnome-open? Manual pages for these commands are not helpful in understanding their operation.

In addition, I might throw in one other question. In the various .desktop files, I see that some application commands are enclosed in single quotes, but never the file name identifier, %f. If dealing with file/directory names with spaces in them, it would seem that quoting the '%f' would be important.

Fedora :: File Browser Missing From FC 13 System Tools Menu?

Aug 18, 2010

I installed Fedora Core 13 x86-64 from the installation DVD and picked the "Software Development" installation. I notice that the Applications->System Tools menu doesn't have "File Browser" on it.

Nautilus is installed, so I can create a launcher for it. I'm merely curious whether this is a change or bug in FC 13? Or should I suspect that I myself deleted the file browser launcher accidentally? The machine is a laptop and I find the mousepad awkward to use.

OpenSUSE :: Application Launcher Changed To Simple Context Menu?

Jun 8, 2011

Suddenly the application launcher (the one that pops out when pressing the green chameleon button) has changed and I no longer get the formerly so pretty application launcher. Instead I now get a simple context menu style drop down menu.

I first noticed this after I updated PackageKit. is there a way to get this back to the previous applicationn launcher. When adding just the applet (without the button) it still looks the same, just the button doesn't pop it out anymore, as it chose to pop out a grey drop down instead.

This is on OpenSuse 11.4 KDE 4.5 and the latest desktop kernel

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 : DVD Menu Missing Repair Tools For The Installed System

Jul 17, 2010

It used to be that the dvd menu offered an option to "repair the installed system". THis was really very convenient. The openSUSE 11.3 dvd for x86 now only gives a "system rescue" option which leads to command line directl. Where have been "the repair the installed system" tools? How can we access them now? What is a reasonable set of tips that's supposed to be used after logging into "system rescue"?

Ubuntu :: Add Shortcuts To Application Menu?

May 7, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04. A app called Pytrainer did not work when downloaded through Ubuntu Software Center. So I downloaded the latest version from their website. It works! However, it did not add a shortcut to the applications menu. Instead, I copied the executable file to the desktop, which is more convenient. But I'd also like it in my applications menu.

How can I do that?

Ubuntu :: Add A Launcher In Application Menu

Sep 18, 2010

I got a problem trying to add a luncher in my application menu. I installed netgen and it works fine. If I try to launch it from the terminal like "$ netgen", it does work. It also works if I double click on the program icon in its folder. But when I try to make a launcher in the menu, it doesn't. I tried both Application (nothing happens) and Application in Terminal (I see a window flash for a second and then it disappears).
