I've been looking at
and elsewhere trying to figure out how to get my web browser menus to show up
in Web Browser as a submenu of the main menu entry Internet when running any
Linux distro other than openSUSE. This is how the KDE3 menu in openSUSE shows
Konqueror, the rpm's Firefox menu, as well as the other Firefoxes and
SeaMonkeys from Mozilla.org I have installed in /usr/local/ and created
created .desktop files for in /usr/local/share/applications. The rpm's
SeaMonkey, unfortunately, is showing up directly in the Internet menu, the
reason for which I've yet to figure out.
When I use the same /usr/local/ tree to boot Mageia KDE4 or Fedora KDE5 or
TDE in openSUSE, all my updated .desktop file entries are showing up directly
in Internet. The only entries in the Web Browser submenu are old entries that
generated Invalid key name: Exec[$e] errors until I deleted the files
containing those keys.
I looked at openSUSE's /usr/share/desktop-directories and found .directory
files for Internet and WebBrowser, but cannot unlock the magic that make them
work. suse-internet.directory contains:
and suse-internet-webbrowser.directory contains:
This is one of the browser .desktop files I made:
Exec=/usr/local/ff3/firefox -no-remote -P ff3
How can I get the same menu nesting effect with other desktop environments
that I get with KDE in openSUSE?
