I just installed netrunner and it runs well, except the Homerun Kicker does not list any applications. It only has the power off buttons. Everything else seems to work. Any ideas on how to get that button to list applications?
There are no application categories. What is there are: three power buttons for power off, restart, and logout. And then: recent applications, favorite applications and power/session. The recent applications just shows a few of the things I have opened and the favorite applications is empty.
I can’t take a screenshot because I don’t know how to get to that application right now. All I have is that square box in the lower left hand corner with those things I just mentioned.
This is my first day with netrunner, so I don’t know really know what the difference is between “normal kicker” and “kickoff menu.”
You can make a Screenshot with the printkey on your keyboard.
The panel is configurable and you can add widgets to it like alternative application menus.
Try clicking on the configure panel option in the far right and adding another menu widget. See if this is working for you.
As for the error itself it might be helpful if you can attach your ~/.xsession-errors file. It’s a hidden text file in your home directory.
[attachment=500]I’ve resized it and it’s still empty. I just noticed that netrunner doesn’t remember file associations. Each time I click on a .jpg, I need to reassociate that extention with a program. Could there be a relationship?
I haven’t looked at both homerunkickerrc and homerunrc files yet, but shouldn’t that last line read baloosearch instead of nepomuksearch? This might be why search isn’t working quite right, just a thought.
leszek – one other thing. I don’t know if this is important, but I used as my home partition the same partition I used with another Linux OS that Netrunner replaced. Any chance that there is something in that old /home that might have caused this?
Yeah most probably it is. But I can’t imagine currently what it could be.
The only thing I could advise you to do is try and error.
So first start with renaming the hidden .local directory in home and relogin and see if it works then. If yes then copy it back go into that directory and try renaming the folders there one by one to testwhat is causingit
AJSlye, my /usr/share/kde4/config file is the same as the one you posted. I think I’ll stick with my new /home for the time being and work on the old user name later. Thanks both of you again for your help.
