Description Andrew D. Stadler 2004-09-29 14:00:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

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):

How reproducible:

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
(menu elements)

We disable the vfolder editing due to stability problems. Reassigning
to be a docs bug.
Comment 2 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-11-06 06:43:02 EST
I removed that section of the docs
