Not having used Ximian Red Carpet before, I took the opportunity to try
it out today. I have to say, I was very impressed with it's polished
interface and smooth handling of dependencies et al. I used it to
update Evolution, Galeon and Nautilus on Mandrake 8.1, and everything
went very well.
However, when I logged back into KDE, I found that the updating of
Galeon and Evolution had removed the KDE menu items for these products.
Having looked into it a little bit further, I am now convinced that this
was not an accident (please correct me if I'm wrong).
While I realise that Ximian are entirely Gnome focussed (and more power
to them), I hardly feel that this justifies screwing around with my KDE
Anybody else had this happen?
