what distribution is it?
KDE is packaged or compiled from sources?
Comment 2 Greg Bouzakis 2010-11-29 19:22:49 UTC
Like i selected during installation, and its visible below, KDE is compiled from sources.
Its actually a customised Slackware installation using the distributions KDE scripts so its very much vanilla.
On machines where i have the nvidia blob installed and/or jre theres other entries under Settings, still no (KDE) System Settings.
The only way to launch the Settings from the Kickoff menu is to go to the Computer tab.
If you go from Applications, its simply not there.
Comment 3 Greg Bouzakis 2010-11-29 19:25:10 UTC
Another fact to note, is that if you use the menu editor, you *can* see System Settings in the Settings menu, (again) just not in Kickoff.

Errm sorry about the multiple comments, but in my second comment in the beggining when i say "Like i selected during installation" i mean "Like i selected in the bug reporting wizard (in the KDE bugzilla)".

show system settings in app list

it's ostensibly still wrong (it's right there in the System area, after all) but
user expectations are near impossible to reshape in this area. *sigh*
