Description Pavel Simerda 2005-01-11 22:38:59 UTC
Description of problem:
I have changed to Fedora Core 3 and I find the application menu is not
very well organised.

I don't want to put Mandrake as an example because I had many problems
with it but what I liked there was the menu. I know I could customize
it myself but I think it'd be good for all users.

Menu -> Internet -> IM  -- Launches Gaim
Menu -> Internet -> Kopete  -- Launches Kopete which is another IM client
I'd prefer Menu -> Internet -> IM -> Gaim, Kopete, (Skype, .......)

Menu -> Graphics  -- contains links to 19 often unrelated programs

Menu -> System settings  and  Menu -> System tools 
should be separated from other options.

There should be a link to Console together with file browser and other
links which are at the top level.

There are many improvements that could be done.

I don't bother so much because I launch applications using alt+f2
(partly because the menu is as it is) but I would be happy to
participate on a better alternative.

Is this bug really so uninteresting that there is no feedback? 

Comment 2 Pavel Simerda 2005-01-27 20:12:21 UTC
Still no interest? 

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 22:54:07 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.

Thank you in advance.
