When I start kcontrol from a terminal I get the following error:
kcontrol: WARNING: No K menu group with X-KDE-BaseGroup=settings found ! Defaulting to Settings/
Kcontrol worked in the beginning but one day when I started it ALL the menu items from the "Index" tab had disappeared (?!).
I've Suse 10.0, Gnome desktop. Reinstalling KDE Base does not help. Neither does deleting ~/.kde.
