Description of problem:
If I attempt to run switchdesk on a machine without GNOME installed I get an error:
"ERROR: GNOME not installed!"
That is true, but it would be useful if it listed the RPMs I need to install, or better still asked me to pop in the DVD and install it for me, or download from the YUM site.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. switchdesk gnome
Actual Results: ERROR: GNOME not installed
Expected Results: Told me what RPMs are needed, or offer to install for me.
ok, the new switchdesk-4.0.7-1 will now tell you:
Error: GNOME is not installed on your machine! To install GNOME, please type
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
it will install GNOME then.
