From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040518 Firefox/0.8 Description of problem: The Ethereal menu entry is not GNOME HIG compliant. Please change it to say: Ethereal Traffic Analyzer Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ethereal-0.10.4-1 How reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: Additional info:
Comment 1 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-06-13 20:04:54 UTC
Relevant: Gnome Icons, Gnome/KDE Menus need improvement on fedora-devel
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2004-06-15 14:58:44 UTC
Why is Network Traffic Analyer not HIG compliant? %^) Read ya, Phil
Comment 3 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-06-15 15:40:45 UTC
The menu entry says Ethereal, which is not acceptable, because it doesn't explain what the program does. The suggested "Network Traffic Analyzer" is also not a good idea because it doesn't include the project name (Ethereal), and if there's ever a competing program that does the same thing it will conflict. The GNOME HIG says menu entries should follow the pattern: app_name app_function. However, the kaffeine maintaner has pointed out that this can be constructed from parts of the .desktop file, which is currently being discussed (or I hope it is) on the fedora-devel thread listed above. So I wouldn't make any changes yet, but if you'd like to discuss this, followup to the thread above.
Comment 4 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-07-23 00:28:15 UTC
The decision was that the .desktop file will be formatted as follows: Name = <appname> <function> GenericName = <function> The the GNOME and KDE menus can work with that. In particular the GNOME menu will be modified to not display the appname for apps that are not core GNOME apps only. Hence, I recommend Name = Ethereal Network Analyzer GenericName = Network Analyzer or something like that. The reason GenericName can't be appended to Name to construct the full name is that translations won't work properly.
Comment 5 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-07-23 00:33:25 UTC
However, since the code in question has not been written yet Bryan Clarke has recommended on several bugs that things stay as they are - (using GenericName as Name) until written. Then things will change like I described.
