Description of problem: Unable to configure desktop and other preferences. "Start Here" folder is empty in Gnome KDE shows some folders, but many are empty . Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-desktop-18.104.22.168-2 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Login to Gnome or 2. KDE desktop 3. Click on "Start Here" folder Actual results: Folder is devoid of any contents, *or* in the KDE desktop contains some sub-folders, many of which are empty Expected results: Folder should populate with symlinks to preferences, settings, and other applications Additional info: The most recent updates from rawhide (Feb. 09) do not fix this problem.

gnome-vfs2 2.2.2-1 should address this, but we need to double check.
Comment 2 Elton Woo 2003-02-12 19:07:22 UTC
The following are the packages on my system from rawhide (Feb. 11) gnome-vfs-1.0.5-13.i386.rpm gnome-vfs-extras-0.2.0-5.i386.rpm gnome-vfs2-2.2.1-2.i386.rpm gnome-vfs2-extras-0.99.9-1.i386.rpm Still no joy. Checking out File: gnome-vfs2-2.2.1-3.i386.rpm to see if this finally fixes it.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-02-12 19:21:06 UTC
Note that nautilus will have to be restarted after gnome-vfs change. Also of course, gnome-vfs change will only fix it for gnome, the kde issue is separate. (Perhaps opening a bug against kdebase would be a good idea there)
Comment 4 Elton Woo 2003-02-12 19:58:21 UTC
The packages of Feb. 12 are taken from my /var/logs/rpmpkgs *after* the machine was rebooted. They were installed and the machine was shutdown for the night. I've now installed gnome-vfs2-2.2.1-3.i386 as of the moment that I am writing. Will restart Nautilus and report.
Comment 5 Elton Woo 2003-02-12 20:47:43 UTC
Oh, joy! *Finally*!! I can now confirm that Gnome's "Start Here" folder is nicely populated with subfolders and icons. A random selection of items confirm that they are functional. The rectification appears to be only effective _after_ my installation of the following packages today: gnome-vfs-1.0.5-13.i386.rpm gnome-vfs-extras-0.2.0-5.i386.rpm gnome-vfs2-2.2.1-2.i386.rpm gnome-vfs2-extras-0.99.9-1.i386.rpm, with a subsequent reboot of the system, of course. WRT the KDE desktop, I can also confirm that the Start Here folder is nicely populated, but with some empty folders or non-functional links. Viz: in KDE the following folders are empty: vfolder:/start-here.menu/Start Here/Applications/Documentation/MoreDocumentation/, however, I only have the contents of the Phoebe-doc.iso installed, so this appears to be logical behavoir. Likewise for these empty ones vfolder:/start-here.menu/Start Here/Applications/System Settings/Server/MoreServer/ vfolder:/start-here.menu/Start Here/System Settings/MoreSystemSettings/ However THIS folder and *all* subfolders are completely devoid of content: vfolder:/start-here.menu/Start Here/Applications/Settings/ (all the subfolders within are empty, including KDE Components). Some of the contents herein are non-functional: file:/usr/share/control-center-2.0/capplets//appearance-properties.desktop The "All Applications" and "Applications" folder within the following directory are non-functional: file:/usr/share/desktop-menu-files/Applications.directory

Moving to kdebase, though some of those issues may be redhat-menus problems.
Comment 7 Ngo Than 2003-02-20 10:37:45 UTC
it's now fixed in 3.1-8.
