Description Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-06-08 21:13:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
Comments below refer to GNOME and the mix between fedora, fedora.us,
and livna.org:

1) Half of my icons depress on mouseover (rhythmbox, totem, gimp,
easytag, scribus, def. icon), and half just light up (xcdroast, gaim,
thunderbird, firefox, screenshot, lock, logout, sound-juicer, menu
icon). Why is that? 

2) Also...why are some of the icons so awful. The easytag icon is
completely unreadable - it's a bunch of color dots spelling easytag!
Could there at least be fewer colors? The xcdroast icon seems rather
ancient compared to other icons of better quality. dillo, rclock,
xtide, commander editor, Kandy, soundtracker, aterm still have no icons..

3) The menus have been critiqued in all the FC2 reviews, and I have to
agree - why are half the menu entires filled with names like CD
Player, Address Manager, Digital Camera Tool...and the other half
contain Ethereal, Kopete, KPPP and other application names that will
confuse a new user. 

4) Why is it that the package htmlview installs 
/usr/share/applications/redhat-email.desktop and
/usr/share/applications/redhat-web.desktop, which link to the correct
apps, when those just result in me getting duplicate menu entries for
my desired email and web agents. 

5) What do the More <X> submenus accomplish, when it's not clear what
the criteria is for what goes in them? 

6) Why do the gnome menus appear all in one giant column where I have
to scroll (at rather slow speed) to get anywhere, while under KDE they
appear in multiple columns?

7)  I am stupid and erased my home icon some time ago in GNOME, but
now I want to give spatial nautilus a chance. How do I get it back?
Surely there must be a way to do this?

Ideally file one issue per bug report, and use bugzilla for bugs, not
for questions. Questions/discussions should go to fedora-list instead.
See http://fedora.redhat.com/participate/communicate/

If you file multiple issues in one report, and those issues have
different resolutions or are resolved at different times, bugzilla
can't be used as intended to track the status of the issues.

Choosing an arbitrary resolution to cover this.

I've tried this before. Wasn't subscribed to -devel though, and my
message was never posted (the list being closed is another bug if you
ask me, but people don't seem to care). I'll try one more time - I'm
subscribed now.

If you want to post without subscribing, join

The list is closed because otherwise it gets enormous quantities of spam.
