Description Mark McLoughlin 2004-08-16 03:45:29 EDT
While playing around with overriding the default menu layout
using $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS I realized it wasn't working because
we're generating these files which merge in the system wide

Clearly, we shouldn't be generating these files at all.
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2004-09-12 11:07:47 EDT
Hmm?  I thought that's how menu editing should be working, the local
user could override the system layout...  When you modify a menu, a
local .menu file is created which merges in the system menus, but then
has a delete/exclude of certain items...  I'm not quite sure what you
mean here by "shouldn't be generating these files at all".  Do you
mean we shouldn't be generating the local-user .menu files?  If not,
how would the local user modify the menus on a per-user basis (if we
want that, which I thought we did)?
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2004-09-13 05:38:50 EDT
Sorry, should have explained better - this is without any menu editing.

Create test user, log in, you've got the files. That's what doesn't
make sense. This could well be the pleasecreate patch in gnome-vfs2,
moving to there.

Doesn't happen with gnome-menus in rawhide
