Description Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-06-17 08:02:01 UTC

Description of problem:
The menu items do not update until I log into gnome again after
installing new apps. This seems extremely undesirable to me.

Consider Windows. Installing a new application does 1000 different
things to inform you it's been installed - startup menu, tray icon,
desktop icon. I find all that very annoying, but at least I know a new
application has been installed, and I know how to launch it.

Consider Linux. I install a new RPM, and I get no indication of any
kind the application has been installed. It's not even in the menu
intil I log in again. Some might consider this the equivalent of
"reboot to make things work".

Hence -> this bug.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install new RPMS.
2. Look at menu.

This is probably due to the fam-ectomy. Does this work with the new
gamin daemon?

Comment 2 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-08-06 12:07:59 UTC
Yes, it works now, after I installed gamin.
The bug, therefore, is that the gnome-panel package should require
gamin for proper operation.

Moving to gamin - sounds like something got screwed up with the fam ->
gamin update

Comment 4 Daniel Veillard 2004-08-24 12:03:50 UTC
Following Ivan report, it seems to me that gamin 0.0.6 actually fixes
the problem, so this should be resolved in Rawhide unless I 
misunderstood something,
