Gnome Icons, Gnome/KDE Menus need improvement

on fedora-devel
Comment 2 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-07-21 17:19:22 EDT
Actually the solution that was finally decided upon for GNOME was as

The .desktop file will hold:
Name = <appname> <function> 
Generic Name = <function>

Then the menu will be made smart to distinguish non-core from core
apps and display the appname only for non-core apps. There was a
discussion about this on fedora-desktop. 

Now, as far as KDE is concerned, I don't know what the menu should do,
but since the .desktop file should be standard and shared between
GNOME and KDE, I think all the kdeutils .desktop entries should be
changed accordingly.

By the way, Name is not simply appended to GenericName, because of
translation issues with this approach.
Comment 3 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-07-21 17:21:47 EDT
By core and non-core I mean part of the desktop environment and not
part of the desktop environment. Anyway, I don't know how that applies
to KDE, but I'm pretty sure the .desktop entries should be changed
like this.

I'll assume:

1) This issue has been dealt with when all the other
menu entries were fixed, or

2) You won't deal with it, because freedesktop policies do not
apply to KDE.

Either way, I don't care anymore, and I'm closing all my
ancient bugs.
