Screenshot of the problem
Description Alan Jenkins 2009-09-09 19:42:15 UTC
Version: (using KDE 4.3.0) Installed from: Ubuntu Packages I reproduced this with sudo aptitude install arora alt+f2 "arora" -> krunner shows the _command_ arora (i.e. with a generic cog icon), but it doesn't show the application and it's specific icon. The Kickoff search box does not suffer from the same problem.

Created attachment 36821 [details] Screenshot 2a And here's why I added the qualifier "reliably": this screenshot taken 5 minutes later shows the problem occurring again, but...

Created attachment 36822 [details] Screenshot 2b ...after deleting a few letters and re-typing them, the real Arora icon shows up. Funky.

This sounds like kbuildsyscoca4 is not run after installing arora (since it is not a kde app maybe?). Can you reproduce with another application? It could then be possibly a distribution issue.

Alan, could you tell us which kernel version are (and were) you using? Thanks
Comment 6 Alan Jenkins 2010-01-03 12:05:51 UTC
Thanks for the interest. I tried again with arora, kmail, and korganizer; the same thing seems to happen with all of them. It doesn't happen with programs which I already have installed (firefox, konqueror, akregator, systemsettings). Kernel version is 2.6.31-16-generic. My KDE version on the same machine is now 4.3.2.
