Description of problem:
These symlink needs to be relative instead of absolute.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /usr/share/applications
2. ls -al redhat-email.desktop
Actual Results: Absolute symlink
Expected Results: Relative symlink
What's the exact problem here? What breaks because these symlinks are absolute
and not relative? I'm not trying to sound like an ass, I'm just trying to
figure out what the bug here is...
It has to do with copying /usr/share/applications to ~/.gnome2/vfolders in the
process to enable menu editing. With absolute symlinks they still point back to
/usr/share, while if they are relative they point to files in ~/.gnome2/vfolders.
I created 3-4 bug reports at once on this topic, and expected at someone to
Menu editing in GNOME doesn't work and isn't supposed to work
anyway... Closing as notabug.
