Description Jens Petersen 2008-03-25 03:50:16 EDT
Description of problem: If one installs kdebase, then kwrite appears in Applications -> Other on the GNOME desktop. How reproducible: every time Steps to Reproduce: 1. install GNOME and KDE 2. login to GNOME 3. go to Applications menu Actual results: 3. kwrite appears in Other submenu Expected results: 3. should appear elsewhere I guess (Accessories?)
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2008-04-14 21:50:22 EDT
Still happening with today's rawhide. Actually I was pondering if it might be useful to have a mechanism to separate the KDE menu entries from the GNOME ones under the GNOME menu - maybe a KDE submenu even?
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-14 21:57:29 EDT
I think this is a horrible idea. IMHO it makes no sense to group applications by what toolkit they happen to use, it's almost as nonsensical as the grouping by vendor usually used on Window$. Sure, it may seem to make sense for KWrite, but what about apps which have no equivalent using the other toolkit? FYI, kmenu-gnome implements that suggestion the other way round (a GNOME submenu in the KDE menu), and I consider the result completely broken and the package worthy of an "rpm -e kmenu-gnome" (and nothing else).
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2008-04-14 22:23:47 EDT
Well I agree partially - but it depends very much on the application. If I am running GNOME I might not mind having Amarok appearing in "Sound and Video" say but I would probably prefer to have kwrite hidden away...
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-14 22:27:37 EDT
The problem is, how do you decide which applications to show in the main menu and which under "KDE"? To pick up your own example, I'm sure there are many hardcode Rhythmbox/Exaile/Banshee/whatever fans who'll want Amarok banned from the main menu too.
