Description Matt Stockdale 2006-03-31 12:53:15 EST
Description of problem:

  in /usr/share/gnome/help/user-guide/C/user-guide.xml, the section "Customizing
Your Menus|To Add a Menu" appears to be outdated. Specifically "In a file
manager window, access the location where you want to add the menu. For example,
if you want to add a menu to the Applications menu, enter applications:/// URI."

That URI, along with "preferences:///" (referenced elsewhere in the help
documentation) it met with an "applications:/// is not a valid location" error.

computer:/// does work, however,

I can only assume that there are multiple references to those (and perhaps
other) URI's that are outdated. In order to modify the menus, I installed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on "Applications" entry on top tool bar
2. Select "help"
3. Browse to "Menubar|Customizing Your Menus|To Add a Menu"
Actual results:

  The incorrect text is displayed

Expected results:

  The correct method for modifying the menu bar should be described

Hi, this bug is very relevent for upstream as well. Would you mind filing a
report on http://bugzilla.gnome.org and posting a link to it here?

You're right, I'm not sure why I thought this was a redhat-only problem.

Comment 3 Matt Stockdale 2006-04-02 04:07:43 EDT
The fine folks on the gnome bugzilla confirm that this is fixed in HEAD, for
release in 2.14.1. Not sure if it needs to be set to CLOSED - NEXTRELEASE or
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 14:34:09 EDT

We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
