http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143149 Summary: kde screensaver list empty with custom menu
Platform: Gentoo Packages
AssignedTo: howells kde org
ReportedBy: troxor gmail com
Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from: Gentoo Packages
Compiler: g++ (GCC) 4.1.1 (Gentoo 4.1.1-r3) gentoo latest
when adding a submenu and adding all existing submenus to it, the screen saver module searches the wrong path for screensaver .desktop files. For example, I want my custom application menu to be as follows. to do this, I use kmenuedit to make a subdir called custom123, and organize the submenus into this structure.
it turns out, somewhere in kdebase-3.5.5/kcontrol/screensaver/scrnsave.cpp and this function ->
KScreenSaver::KScreenSaver(QWidget *parent, const char *name, const QStringList&)
: KCModule(KSSFactory::instance(), parent, name)
it wants to search in the wrong directory as per an strace:
access("/usr/kde/3.5/share/applnk/custom123/System/ScreenSavers", F_OK) = -1 ...
to fix this, restore the original menu by deleting ~/.local/share/desktop-directories/custom123.directory and the menu file in ~/.config/menus
(sorry for language coherency, it took ~12 hours to find the cause of this bug, and it's quite late here at the time of this writing ;)
