Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: kdelibs5-data
Since Gnome uses the default applications.menu to house its menu
structure, KDE is forced to use an alternate prefix like
kde4-applications.menu, to prevent menu collisions.
To make this happen, a simple patch was introduced to tell KDE to use
the new prefix. Unfortunately, the inadvertant side effect is that the
prefix is inherited, and used to for DefaultMergeDirs, which means
applications-merged never gets searched for new menu entries.
A proper fix needs to be introduced to allow KDE to use the
DefaultMergeDirs directive correctly.
For now, if you manually insert a MergeDir directive into the
kde4-applications.menu, pointing at applications-merged, things will
work, but this is not the correct way as the spec is stil broken at this
** Affects: kde4libs (Ubuntu)
