Description Bjorn Ryborg 2003-10-15 12:07:08 EDT

Description of problem:
After installing a never game who uses the loki installer, it does not make an
entry in the gnome-menu. It happen with the Enemy Teritory and Americas Army
games. (and more, ex. Gtk-radiant)

The Loki installer makes this file:

It looks like this:

[Desktop Entry]

To correct the problem, i have to delete the line:


and the icon shows properly in the Games menu in the Gnome-start menu.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download the enemy teritory (et) game from ftp.idsoftware.com
2.install the game
3.Restart X and look in the start-menu.

Actual Results:  No entry in the Gnome-start menu

Expected Results:  An icon and entry for the game in the Gnome-menu.

Additional info: I have mailed several times to ID Software, and the developer
of GTK Radiant, but they all say it is a RedHat-Gnome  bug.

In final Fedora Core it does not help to delete the line;

It is not possible to get an menu entry for these games (Enemy
Teritory and Americas Army and others) Fedora is no longer kompatible
with the loki installer...

Moving to redhat-menus. More than likely a problem with the
applications vfolder.

Try playing with /etc/X11/desktop-menus/applications.menu and let us
know if you have any success. Thanks.

Hi Bjorn,

Red Hat doesn't currently have the resources to devote toward resolving this
issue.  If you figure out a solution, we'll be happy review it and apply it, of

The problem has solved itself, somehow. It works in Fedora 4 and RHEL4.

Hi Bjorn,

That's good to hear.  I'll change the status appropriately.
