Gnome Icons, Gnome/KDE Menus need improvement

on fedora-devel

Comment 2 Seth Nickell 2004-06-16 12:14:45 EDT
Using a purely descriptive name is HIG compliant.
Comment 3 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-06-16 13:30:33 EDT
No it is not. The HIG is here:


..and as you can see, this is not true.

The proper name would be: Rhythmbox Music Player.
The reason for this is that I have 10 music players installed,
and I don't think rhythmbox should reserve the title of THE MUSIC
PLAYER for itself. This is a bug that needs to be fixed.
Comment 4 Colin Walters 2004-06-22 16:52:38 EDT
This is fixed upstream in the 0.9 branch, will be in the 0.10 release.
Comment 5 Bryan W Clark 2004-07-07 01:06:01 EDT
To add to this, if the Rhythmbox Music Player becomes the accepted as
the standard GNOME music player then it does reserve the right of the
title MUSIC PLAYER as it has become the GNOME Music Player.  Upon this
acceptance the upstream name should change to reflect this.

Having 10 music players is ridiculous and there's no reason to try to
make all of GNOME (or each app) bend to this kind of edge use case. 
Two of the same application is about all any system needs, if
otherwise I suspect that each of those applications have design issues
that require you to have so many of them.
