redhat-menus -> koffice
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2004-11-02 17:12:51 EST
Why (re)assign to koffice?  It's clearly a redhat-menus misgiving.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2004-11-02 17:14:39 EST
See proposed patch in bug #137796 to create an "Editors" menu to 
contain this currently missing items.

it's a bug in redhat-menus, reassign to correct component
Comment 6 Seth Nickell 2004-11-03 16:43:10 EST
On a technical level, what is the bug? Is Kate/Kwrite not including
category keywords that we know about?
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2004-11-03 16:53:42 EST
The bug being that Kate/Kwrite (or any app that includes 
Categories=TextEditor)
doesn't appear anywhere in the menus.  Once consequence of that (in 
KDE at least), is that they cannot be chosen to as the default app to 
handle their supported MimeTypes, like text/plain.
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2004-11-24 11:52:12 EST
An errata was released (redhat-menus-3.7.1-1.fc3), why wasn't this fix
included? 
Comment 9 Ngo Than 2005-03-21 10:43:05 EST
it's fixed in redhat-menus-3.7.1-7. it will showup in rawhide soon.
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2005-03-21 11:48:47 EST
Did you use the patch for an added "Editors" menu, or did you put these items
elsewhere in the menus?
Comment 11 Ngo Than 2005-03-21 12:14:53 EST
Kate will show up in Development and kedit/kwrite in Accessories
Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2005-03-22 10:28:38 EST
The real problem is that items with 
Category=TextEditor
are not handled with the current redhat menus(-3.7.1)

IMO, the "fix" as implemented is a hack, hard-coding menu locations for known
unhandled (ie TextEditor) applications (eg, kedit, kwrite, kate).  This problem
will raise itself again, as soon as any other 
Category=TextEditor
application is ever installed.

I'll reopen bug #137796 to address this larger issue.

p.s. AFAIK, kedit is no longer present in kde-3.4.0
