Description Ville Skyttä 2003-09-27 13:04:59 EDT
Various desktop entry files from redhat-menus are missing the Encoding key and
use the deprecated "Terminal=0".  Will attach a patch.

As of 3.7.1-9, the following still lack the Encoding key:

Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-03-29 18:13:42 EDT
assuming the build finishes okay, this should be fixed in tomorrow rawhide.
Comment 7 Todd Zullinger 2007-03-30 12:13:23 EDT
Isn't the Encoding key now deprecated in the desktop entry spec?  From
(bullet point 4):

The Encoding key is deprecated. It was used to specify whether keys of type
localestring were encoded in UTF-8 or in the specified locale. Possible values
are UTF-8 and Legacy-Mixed. See Appendix D, The Legacy-Mixed Encoding
(Deprecated) for more details.
Comment 8 Ville Skyttä 2007-03-30 14:34:40 EDT
That's true, it's deprecated nowadays.  It wasn't in 2003 nor 2005 when I
reported/commented on this bug ;)

I think the spec is somewhat unclear about how exactly should the encodings be
specified nowadays, but I guess it's like Comment[fi.ISO-8859-1]=... and for
things of type localestring only (encoding being optional, and defaulting to
UTF-8, in which case it can be omitted).

Comment 9 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-03-31 11:38:23 EDT
It doesn't hurt to add it as long as it's set to UTF-8, though.

It just makes the file more compatible.
