Fools walk in...recently, I upgraded Kubuntu from Gusty Gibbon to Hardy Heron. Wanting to take advantage of this rare window of spare time, I decided to upgrade everything that had upgrades ready. All at once. How could I be so stupid? Uhh!
(I guess you know where this is leading.)
I didn't expect that the group upgrade would download any beta programs, but, I ended up with Firefox 3.0b5. This is not a problem, because, the only glitch I've seen is a very minor problem with radio buttons requiring an extra click. However...
A few days later, I noticed that my sound was gone. I suspect that it's been gone since the upgrade. Somtimes I hurry and don't notice things and wasn't working with sound files during said few days.
In System Settings, advanced tab, System Servies, alsa-utils is set to not start at bootup and is shown to be not running. I'm guessing this doesn't matter, but, I'm not sure.
In Dolphin and only in Dolphin (not on the desktop, not in Konqueror), when I mouse-over an html file, I get the following prompt:
The desktop entry file
has an invalid menu entry
Following, are the contents of said file:
[Desktop Action addAsPodcast]
Name=Add as podcast to amaroK
Name[de]=Als Podcast zu amaroK hinzufügen
I can't open an html file from Dolphin. I'm stuck until I clear away the prompt window. They open just fine when using Konqueror.
I really don't know what to make of this. I don't know what is the invalid menu entry. Given that the offending file has amarok in it's name and in it's contents, could it be that problem 1 and problem 2 are the same problem?
It's a home built box, xfx mobo, 3 GHz Pentium D, xfx nvidia graphics card, 2 GB RAM, 500 GB Seagate hd, on-board sound, DVD ROM and floppy drive.
Any suggestion would be greatly welcome.
