KDE - can't create new folder [Solved]

Post by BlueJayofEvil » Sun Feb 03, 2008 21:34

I'm not sure what I did for KDE to punish me like this, but for some reason I can't creat a new folder, file, etc from the right-click menu in Konqueror. All I have is Create New -> Link to device -> (thin blank box)
This also happens in the Edit menu as well.
I don't recall doing anything that could cause this. I copied some files from some cd's and dvd's I have (backups of pictures, etc) to my hard drive, played Quake 3 Arena, and chatted with friends on Kopete.
Is anyone else having this problem? And if so, is there a way to fix it without reinstalling Sabayon? Any help would be appreciated.

Attached is a screenshot of the menu I currently get.

EDIT: I've got this problem solved. Apparently something I emerged "updated" KDE to version 3.97.0. The solution was simple:

Code: Select all

# emerge =kdelibs-3.5.8-r10 kdesktop konqueror && emerge kdebase-kioslaves
