I can't seem to duplicate this.  Did you use the RPMs available from
the updates site?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-08-20 19:19:59 UTC
this will be fixed in the next release.  Thank you for the report.
For now, I suggest editing /usr/bin/kappfinder and changing:

kde_icondir=`echo '${install_root}$KDEDIR/share/icons' | sed -e
  kde_appsdir=`echo '${install_root}$KDEDIR/share/applnk' | sed -e
  kde_minidir=`echo '${install_root}$KDEDIR/share/icons/mini' | sed -e


kde_icondir=`echo '$(prefix)/share/icons' | sed -e
  kde_appsdir=`echo '$(prefix)/share/applnk' | sed -e
  kde_minidir=`echo '$(prefix)/share/icons/mini' | sed -e
