KDE 3.1 Where is Mozilla icon?


OK, this is a stupid newbie question, but I installed SuSE 8.2 with KDE 3.1... I was logged in as root and installed Mozilla 1.4. It installed to /usr/local/mozilla and it works fine, but I cannot find an item to launch Mozilla anywhere on the "Start Applications" menu. Where the heck is it? Shouldn't the installer have added it?

Thanks.

the simple answer...no

mozilla isnt going to check for every WM out there to see which one it should configure for especially when people change them often, also it wouldnt know where ont eh menu you would want it, youll have to make one of your own

If you have SuSE 8.2 default menu you could try look it on:
"Start Applications" -> Internet -> WWW
Sometime you need to execute
SuSEconfig
after installing application to have a shortcut (if provided with the app tho).

Else right-click on "Start Applications" -> Menu Editor -> create your own shortcut and icon for the application ;-)

A utility you might find helpful is a program
called KAppFinder. It will scan for many programs
and add them to the menu automatically.
You can launch it through Kmenu->Settings->KAppFinder

Launch it. Click Scan. Check any programs you want to
and to your menu.

The location of KAppFinder for me is

/usr/kde/3.1/bin/kappfinder

but yours may be different try
$which kappfinder

That should tell you if/where you have it
It is part of the base KDE installation so
you probably have it.

If you have it you can just run it from
konsole or the app launcher (press alt-f2)
and type:
kappfinder

The simple way to do this is to go:
K-Menu|Settings|Menu Editor. Click the Internet option (or whereever you want the item to appear). Use Mozilla (Web Browser) for the name (you can change it, though). For the command, use mozilla. You can select an icon for mozilla by clicking on the blank piece of paper.

Hope this helps.
