I'm on openSuse 12.1 and my /proc has smaps files.

I was looking into the source of ksysguard and found that it can load .desktop files
which define some additional actions in the RMB.
(In the source it uses KGlobal::dirs()->findAllResources("data", "ksysguard/scripts/*/*.desktop",...)

In the rpm I have installed here (kdebase4-workspace-ksysguardd-4.8.1-729.4.i586)
there is not even the scripts directory, so the file which is obviously missing in the RPM
is smaps.desktop, which I found in ksysguard source tree.

ok, thanks for your help - I'm going to bother the openSuse packagers... ;-)
