Description Brian Z 2000-08-04 14:37:38 EDT
When clicking on the Icon for Netscape on the taskbar, the system reports that it cannot launch 
/usr/bin/netscape-communicator.  This problem  also occurres in GNOME.  Perhaps communicator should 
be installed by default?  /usr/bin/netscape exists however.  Please forgive me if this is the improper 
component, I was unsure what to classify this as.  Thank you!
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-08-04 15:25:01 EDT
We're putting the icon in the taskbars so users can start it easily - but since
KDE and GNOME both work well without netscape, we don't want them to require it.
Adding a piece of proprietary software to a base install is out of the question.
Comment 2 Brian Z 2000-08-04 16:14:45 EDT
But why have the icons if netscape-communicator is not installed by default?  If /usr/bin/netscape is installed by default, maybe you should
point the icons there?  If an icon doesn't work by default, why have it?
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-08-23 14:49:54 EDT
The icons are actually pointing to /usr/bin/netscape.
Comment 4 Brian Z 2000-09-17 09:35:42 EDT
When I installed the beta, the icons pointed to netscape-communicator and not netscape.  That is why I filed the bug report.

Closing.. works in 7.0 full.  No need to leave it open.
