How to rebuild the KDE menu?

Asked by Daniel Kulesz on 2012-08-16

I recently switched from the normal kde session to kde-openbox-session. Everything works fine, except that the KDE menus are empty and all file associations are not working because i.e. dolphin thinks that I have no applications installed.

I tried several things like deleting .config/menus, rebuilding it with "kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental" but had not success so far.

Any suggestions on how to get the menu rebuilt without deleting my complete KDE profile?

One more thing: When I try to add the association manually using "File Associations" in settings it says "updating system configuration" but the association does not get saved somehow.

I "solved" the problem as explained in the linked bug report.
