Kde games will not open or link

Asked by brute on 2009-07-28

I have tried Gnomenu several times and it seems I cannot get the KDE games to open with it.
K3B however will. Not sure if this is something I am doing or what.

I have a couple of KDE games myself. I had to hand edit the menu entries. Right click the menu button select "Edit Menu" Then go into the Games Listings. On the KDE games remove anything past the actual program name like %u -i etecetera. Just have the Gnome Entries use the KDE game's actual program name. If there is a path directory to the game file keep that. I have found once the extra modifiers are removed the KDE games come right up. BTW this isn't just a GnoMenu problem, seems to affect all Gnome Menu Systems.

Thanks for that info. guess it is a KDE issue. After edit they did work. I just wish I knew a little more about Gnomenu because it looks really nice. Thanks!
