"Invalid desktop files" in merged directories
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:57:04 EDT
Description of problem: When running 'desktop-create-kmenu', it complains
about assorted desktop files being invalid when found in one of the
alternative directory locations (e.g. /usr/share/gnome/apps/)
The exact same file is processed quite happily when located in the
main /usr/share/applications directory
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.1-13
How reproducible: Very
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cp /usr/share/applications/konsole.desktop /usr/share/gnome/apps/TEST.desktop
2. /usr/bin/desktop-create-kmenu 2>&1 | grep TEST
Warning: ignoring invalid desktop file /usr/share/gnome/apps/TEST.desktop
Corresponding entry created in menu structure
This is with Ximian XD2 installed.
It may well be that there is some incompatibility there.
I'm quite happy to investigate further, but some advice as to
where to look would be appreciated.
i assign it to correct component
Looking at the code, I can't even begin to see how this could happen.
What if you don't rename to TEST.desktop? Very strange.
Idea - maybe konsole.desktop is overridden by another konsole.desktop with the
same name, so isn't really used?
I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.
This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now. Are you still seeing the problem?

This bug has been in the NEEDINFO state for at least a couple of weeks now. I'm
going to close the bug, but if you can provide the required information feel
free to open a new report.
