Description Rex Dieter 2009-01-30 19:27:45 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.0)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs

Since 4.2.0 release, kded doesn't seem to detect newly installed .desktop files and rerun kbuildsycoca4.

iirc, it *did* work in kde-4.0.96 (but don't quote me on that).
Comment 1 Jure Repinc 2009-01-30 20:00:06 UTC
Also confirmed on Mandriva 2009.1 Cooker upgraded to KDE 4.2.0 final.

SVN commit 918838 by dfaure:

Fix regression introduced by r910248; two bools (b_checkUpdates and bCheckUpdates) for the same thing,
and b_checkUpdates was always false, so the directories were never watched, and people had to run
kbuildsycoca4 by hand after installing new desktop files.
