Duplicate Entries OpenSuSE 10.0


Hello I'm running OpenSuSE 10.0 and everything is working great except for a little nag in the start menu. I edited the start menu via the KDE Menu Editor to remove entries that weren't necessary and all went well except for the "Office" category of the menu. Everything in this category has double entries. No other category does this. I edited the menu to have one application for each name, meaning if you went to SuSEMenu/Internet there would be no more expanding of the menu. I felt it wasnt necessary to have an entry such as "Web Browsers" then have "Konqueror" and "Firefox" as I just use firefox. Any reasons why this is duplicating like this? I have double entries for the following: Address Book, Calendar, Database, Document Viewer, Presentation, Project Management, Spreadsheet and Word Processor. There is also a lone entry for Kontact (Personal Information Manager). Is there a work around for this? Any help would be nice. Thanks.

You need to delete the menu settings file under home .kde. If you select the show hidden files and check through the entries you will find it. Then just re-start kde and it will rebuild the menu for you.

If you can't find it post back and I will check the location on my home p/c (at work now).
