After update to Kubuntu 12.10, I can no longer access configuration options in Kile from Settings->Configure kile (or whatever the menu entry was for configuration).
In fact, "Settings" menu has only five entries: "Define current document as master document", "System check", "Show side bar", "Show message bar", and "Toolbars shown."
I did a fresh install of Kubuntu 12.10 on one of my other computers, and same problem. I even tried adding the (unsupported) ppa:kile/stable, but the problem persists. Any ideas?
I need to access settings to set PDF Latex to use "modern" compilation mode, so that I can use synctex.
