qde gone from the launch menu...

Post by Miguel Simon » Tue Dec 23, 2003 3:47 pm

Hi...

I updated mozilla from the public repository, and the action wiped out
the entry for the qde (momentics IDE) from the menu. (I will not ask
why/how this happened...).

How could I restore this menu item?

Thanks.

Regards...

Miguel.

Because you had updated the photon perhaps .

The entry for the qde is contained in the XML file ~/.ph/launch_menu.log
on my QNX 6.2.1B machine. XML is pretty strict about opening and closing
of tags, but it is pretty robust at resync'ing. If this file was
corrupted, it might explain your qde entry disappearing, but the
majority of the launch_menu being unaffected.

Here is a representation of what I see in mine, hopefully it will help
you figure this out:

<item path="/etc/system/package/packages">
<item launch="..." topic="..."></item>
...
<item launch="/usr/bin/qde" topic="Applications/Development/Integrated
Development Environment (IDE)"></item>
</item>

If that doesn't help, please post your launch_menu.log and
launch_menu.xml files (both are in ~/.ph/. )

Sounds like a good thing to add to the User's Guide (which will be included
in 6.3). Thanks for the suggestion.
