There are two with k3b under KDE 3.2.3 related to files being in the wrong place.
1. Various images (most noticeably the splash screen) don't appear, making the program look very unprofessional.
2. k3bsetup doesn't work, "Library files for "libkcm_k3bsetup2.la" not found in paths".
Both of these errors are found in both the stable and the most recent unstable ebuilds.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge kde version 3.2.3r1
2. emerge qt version 3.3.3
3. emerge k3b (either the most recent or the unstable)
Run k3b - you should see something similar to the image referenced above.
Run k3bsetup - you should get the error described above.
A pretty splash screen should have appeared when running k3b.
k3bsetup should start a program which allows the user to configure various
aspects of k3b.
The problem seems to be that a number of files are placed in /usr/share/,
/usr/lib/ rather than /usr/kde/....
The splash screen & other graphics issues may be worked around by adding the
ln -s /usr/share/apps/k3b /usr/kde/3.2/share/apps/
The k3bsetup issue may be worked around as follows:
cp /usr/lib/kde3/kcm_k3bsetup2.* /usr/kde/3.2/lib/kde3/
You must be logged in as root to do either of these.
I am logging this as major because the k3bsetup bug effectively prevents an
inexperienced user from configuring k3b without a lot of digging around.
It works fine here. The files should not be in /usr/kde since they don't belong to the default installation.
Right, all should work well as long as KDEDIRS is defined,
could you try running 'KDEDIRS="/usr" k3b' ?
the locations of the files are correct, could you get it working?
I finally found the problem yesterday evening. For some reason, kde-env needed to be re-emerged.
Sorry for the trouble.
