Description Gordon Messmer 2007-10-07 00:20:44 EDT
Description of problem:
The kdepim package contains this file:
/usr/share/applnk/.hidden/kalarmd.desktop

All of the other applnk files in that package contain the line "Hidden=true",
but this one does not.  As a result, the Gnome "Applications" menu contains a
".hidden" item, in which the kalarmd item is kept.

This file should also contain "Hidden=true" so that it is consistent with the
rest of the package, and doesn't clutter the Gnome menus.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdepim-3.5.7-9.svn20070926.ent.fc8

gnome-menus bug not supporting legacy .hidden/*.desktop files,
see bug #245190
Comment 2 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-01-27 15:02:01 EST
As a short-term fix, could we just fix kdepim? This is getting rather annoying.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-01-27 15:10:08 EST
We've got much bigger fish to fry, I'm afraid, so this is low-priority for us
(esp since gnome is the only DE having this issue).

Consider too that changing .desktop files (esp legacy ones) is a non-trivial
thing to do, and sometimes causes unforeseen side-effects (we've had breakage
occur before), so I'm not prepared to do that before having ample time to
properly QA the change.
