Description Stefan Wachter 2009-05-25 00:38:17 UTC
OS: Suse 11.1
KDE: 4.1.3
xdg-utils: 1.0.2

When a directory entry is manually deleted from the start menu using the KDE menu editor then a "Deleted" entry is stored in the file

~/.config/menus/application-kmenuedit.menu. E.g.:


If the directory is to be reinstalled using

xdg-desktop-menu install polfha-verzeichnis.directory <list of menu entries...>

then the directory entry does not appear in the start menu. It is was not before I had removed the "Deleted" entry from application-kmenuedit.menu that the reinstalled directory entry showed up in the start menu.

This is a kde/kmenuedit implementation detail, and I'm not sure if there's anything xdg-desktop-menu can (or should) do about it.
