Bug#247407: Missing method in /etc/menu-methods/ for updating KDE menu
Followup-For: Bug #247407
I have a similar problem than the one reported by the original submitter.
I never had my KDE menu empty, but there is an explanation for that:
I was not logged in an X session when I upgraded from KDE 3.1 to KDE 3.2, so
if the proposed "cure" for the dissapearing menu entries is correct, I could
have never seen my KDE menu empty, for as I soon as I logged in the otherwise
missing entries should have been restored...
The bug I found occurs at installing o removing a non-KDE package providing a
menu entry. The entry is neither added (when installing a package) nor removed
(when removing a package) from the KDE menu... which is no surprise as there is
no method in /etc/menu-methods handling the insertion or removal of menu entries
for KDE. KDE programs are apparently managed in a different way, as they do add
and remove themselves from the KDE menu.
A search in http://packages.debian.org/ for packages providing some file in
/etc/menu/methods shows forty-something results, none of which is related to
KDE, both for the testing and unstable distributions.
Therefore I think my problem and the one the original submitter reported are
caused by the lack of a KDE menu method for update-menus to use.
