Can't start some KOffice apps

From: Darrell Anderson <humanreadable@...>

From the default T-Menu I can't start KWord or KPresenter. I can start other KOffice apps from the T-Menu.

I can't start either from KRunner unless I use the %u parameter. I can start either with no parameters from Konsole.

When I start KPresenter from KRunner with the same command as in the T-Menu, kpresenter %u, I receive a message box that says:

Could not open
Reason: the file does not exist.

When close KPresenter I see the following message:

The document '%u' has been modified.
Do you want to save it?

I can get both KWord and KPresenter to start from KRunner if I use the full path.

/opt/trinity/bin is the first directory in my search path.

I can get both to start from the T-Menu if I modify the menu to use full paths.

I don't see anything in the desktop files that is different from the other KOffice apps.

Can anybody else confirm this behavior? Anybody know where to troubleshoot?
