Description of problem:
According to the gnome 2.6 user guide, section 5.7, one can customize
menus by navigating to the applications:/// location (and making
various editing changes). However, this fails in two ways.
If I select application:/// I get a read-only folder. If I select
applications-all-users:/// I get an error message. Neither condition
is covered in the help manual.
It looks like there might be additional information (locked
directories, etc) in the sys admin guide. But I believe this is a bug
(1) configuration: the out-of-box user configuration doesn't match
the help guide
(2) appropriateness: users shouldn't need admin privileges they
don't have in order to do something as basic as customizing their menus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
per help guide directions,
1. open file manager
2. go to applications:///
3. try to create a folder
Actual Results: can't - the vfolder is write protected
Expected Results: should be able to create folders (menus) and items
We disable the vfolder editing due to stability problems. Reassigning
to be a docs bug.
I removed that section of the docs
