 Hi Nicolas,

the step of running kbuildsycoca4 ?

Simply running kbuildsycoca4 didn't help, i.e. the Preferences menu
is still greyed out and Configure Shortcuts still missing.

I'm using OS X 10.7.5 and XCode 4.6.3. I also use Fink and there is
probably a lot of cruft which survived playing around, updating and
migrating my system several times from one Mac to the next during the
previous 10 years or so. Is there any more specific information which
would be helpful?

That actually did help, thanks a lot!
