Should the editor open Kdevelop for me?

Should the editor open Kdevelop for me when I try to edit a c++ file or am I expecting too much for this point in time?

Problem is related to Gnome desktop, it works correctly on ubuntu unity desktop

EDIT: I deleted a project that was a test project where this was working. I created a new project, and once more I can’t get it to work with kdevelop. The project does not generate any CMake fiels or .kdev4 files.

IT seems the editor will only generate the files if it is inside the folder tree where the first project was created, when I create folders in different paths it wont create the cmake files.
