Description David A. Wheeler 2001-08-02 03:50:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686) Description of problem: GNOME cannot invoke many KDE applications on my system, which is an upgraded Red Hat 7.1 system (from 7.0, from 6.2, from 6.1, from 6.0). For example, Main Menu (foot)/KDE/Games/Shisen-Sho when selected causes nothing visible to happen. How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start up GNOME. 2,Select Main Menu (foot)/KDE/Games/Shisen-Sho. 3. Nothing visible happens (it should start the game) Actual Results: Nothing visible happens. Expected Results: (it should start the game) Additional info: I believe the problem is the KDE desktop entry files. I suspect that KDE is supporting certain "%" entries in KDE desktop enty files that aren't valid in the GNOME invoker. When the GNOME invoker just passes these "%" entries along, the KDE apps silently fail to work. When I cd to /usr/share/applnk/Games I see that kshisen.desktop has this value: Exec=kshisen %i %m -caption "%c" Changing this line to: Exec=kshisen Makes Shisen-sho work fine. However, the other KDE applications generally still don't work. This system has been upgraded several times; perhaps some of these files are obsolete and shouldn't be the primary ones being used.

Fixed in current gnome-core

Exactly which version of the GNOME fix this problem? I don't find errata PRMs for RH7.1 gnome-core. I want RedHat to fix this problem on RH7.1. I have confirmed this one is fixed on RH7.2,though. Regards,
Comment 3 David A. Wheeler 2002-11-19 20:00:32 UTC
I can also confirm that this is fixed in Red Hat 7.2 and 8.0. Thanks!!
