Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-07-30 18:08:42 EDT
Description of problem:

An output of this command

desktop-menu-tool --print /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu

ends with:

Warning: failed to load desktop file
Error in section Desktop Entry at line 2: Invalid characters in key name
Warning: failed to load desktop file
Error in section Desktop Entry at line 2: Invalid characters in key name

** ERROR **: file menu-process.c: line 1937 (foreach_print): assertion
failed: (error == NULL)

I assume that there are indeed "Invalid characters in key name".
OTOH it is a good question if a desktop-menu-tool should indeed
abort on such error instead of just skipping an invalid entry.

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

Indeed the spec is here:

The lastest version in Rawhide (gnome-pilot-2.0.12-4) still has this
bug.  However the bug has already been fixed in upstream CVS, there
was a bug about it here:

Comment 5 John Thacker 2006-10-29 16:59:54 EST
Changing version to correct one.  (test1 -> fc3test1, and some were filed as
test3 accidentally instead; but clearly must be fc3test1 given the date of filing.)
Comment 6 Matthew Barnes 2006-11-07 10:28:27 EST
This seems to be fixed now in gnome-pilot-2.0.14-3.fc7.

The file in question has since moved to:
