KDE and menu/panel problems - SOLVED

After a recent update some of the menu items and panel apps disapeared from KDE panel and menu.  The two apps that I lost were sylpheed-claws and firefox

I discovered that they have been added to the menu as : - gnome - share - : - usr (can't compelte the path as I deleted the menu items...)

Every time I try to add them to the correct section of the menu or to the panel it just fails even though there is no error message.

Both apps still work fine.

Any suggestions?

I'm not running the latest xorg as it was causing the system to freeze periodically.  But I am running the latest KDE

Use at least the latest xorg.sh which can be found above.

put this in /etc/profile.d/xorg.sh and make it chmod 755:
export XDG_DATA_HOME=$HOME/.local/share
export XDG_CONFIG_HOME=$HOME/.config
export XDG_CACHE_HOME=$HOME/.cache

if [ -z $XDG_DATA_DIRS ]; then
        export XDG_DATA_DIRS=/usr/share
else
        export XDG_DATA_DIRS=/usr/share:$XDG_DATA_DIRS
fi

if [ -z $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS ]; then
        export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/etc/xdg
else
        export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/etc/xdg:$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
fi
