Description Christoph Wickert 2011-04-16 11:56:36 EDT
Description of problem:
systemadm lacks an entry in the main menu. This is a violation of the packaging guidelines that state "If a package contains a GUI application, then it needs to also include a properly installed .desktop file. For the purposes of these guidelines, a GUI application is defined as any application which draws an X window and runs from within that window."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
systemd-gtk-24-1.fc15

Additional info:
It would be nice to have this fixed until F15 GA because I want to have systemadm replace system-config-services in the LXDE and Xfce Spins. As systemd is a new feature of F15, systemadm should be shown prominently in the menu.

I am not sure systemadm is good enough yet to show up in menus.
Comment 2 James Laska 2011-04-21 16:02:41 EDT
Discussed at 2011-04-21 blocker review meeting (http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-bugzappers/2011-04-21/f15-blocker-review.2011-04-21-17.00.html) ...

AGREED: 697188 - AcceptedNTH - Will accept a tested fix if provided before release

Lennart:  Please note, that NTH (nice-to-have) means that a fix will be accepted through the freeze.  However, you can still choose not to do the change.  The lack of this fix will *not* block the release.

I think it is, no need to be shy. We need a replacement for system-config-services. If we had this in our Spins, it would give systemd even more attention and show how awesome it is.

And this is not just a RFE because the current package violates the packaging guidelines:
"If a package contains a GUI application, then it needs to also include a properly installed .desktop file. For the purposes of these guidelines, a GUI application is defined as any application which draws an X window and runs from within that window."

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

What's the current status on this?

Removing the RFE status this looks like a more genuine bug to me. 

Per comment 1 having people actually seeing systemadm might motivate someone to work on it and improve the situation that is if still not "presentable" to end users...
Comment 7 Michal Schmidt 2012-02-27 09:22:08 EST
We won't add the desktop entry to the current package, but we'll split systemadm into a separate package, where the missing *.desktop entry is currently a blocker for the review request.
