Konqueror's "Create new" Menu under KDE4

Add this post to Del.icio.us. Del.icio.us (0 saved)

A while ago, I posted how to edit Konqueror's "Create New" menu. Unfortunately, installing the KDE4 desktop seems to nullify this trick. This is because KDE4 redirects Konqueror from /usr/share/templates to /usr/lib/kde4/share/templates . Annoying, really. There are two solutions.

First solution is to copy your files from /usr/share/templates to /usr/lib/kde4/share/templates . Then either stop worrying about /usr/share/templates, or sync them whenever a change is made.

Second solution is to symlink (create a shortcut to) /usr/share/templates from /usr/lib/kde4/share. To do this, first move /usr/lib/kde4/share/templates to a "backup" state (like /usr/lib/kde4/share/templates.old ): sudo mv /usr/lib/kde4/share/templates /usr/lib/kde4/share/templates.old Then create the shortcut: sudo ln -s /usr/share/templates /usr/lib/kde4/share/ And voila, you are back to maintaining one directory.
