Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 102655
start-here:/// has duplicate and non-functioning entries
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:58 EDT
Description of problem:
In my start-here window I get different icons, sometimes with different text
that lead to the same target.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open start-here nautilus window
Two different icons for system-settings:///
both labeled "Systemeinstellungen" (I use the german locale)
Two different icons for preferences:///
Labeled "PrÃ¤ferenzen" and "Vorlieben"
"Programme" leads to programs:///, but I get an error message
that this is an invalid location.
Same with "Favoriten" and favorites:///
Also I get the Start-here icon "Hier Starten" from the desktop in the start-here
window itself again. If I click on it I get the msg that
system-settings:///.directory.rpmsave can not be displayed. I have this problem
in the other folders, too. E.g. ther is an unhandeled icon for
system-settings:///.directory in system-settings:/// and so on.
Another item: Are those three / really necessary? Ever thought about a solution
without this crazy URL?? I can not use that address/protocol in Mozilla, so it's
confusing for Joe User.
only the right icons

Try deleting all the .rpmsave files, maybe you edited or otherwise modified
the old .directory/.desktop files, and then rpm felt the need to
create .rpmsave copies of old broken files.
I did a
and I deleted
But I still have a .directory file that is displayed in preferences:///
Where I can I find it and is it save to delete it?
Maybe /usr/share/desktop-menu-files? Not sure offhand.
Any .rpmsave should be safe to delete.
There are no .rpmsave files. Only .directory files. And the error msg on double
click complains about a .directory file, not a .directory.rpmsave file.

shows problem inside system-settings:///
We don't expose system-settings:/// and start-here:/// anymore
