Description of problem:
Love the Fedora Core 5 system-config-control gui, but have a couple of
nitpicks that maybe someone can help me with?

Under misc the gui gives me a logviewer button, but tells me that no
logviewer is installed.  In fact, system-logviewer 2.14 for Gnome is
installed and usable. How can I set up the button so it will run my

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): No version number
in 'about'

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: Just use
1.open System Control Centre
2.click on misc side button
3.click on log viewer
Actual results: Error dialog that says log viewer not installed.  Please install.

Expected results: system-logviewer 2.14 for Gnome would run

Additional info:I would like to remove the Desktop Switching Tool button under
misc. (I never use it) and replace it with a custom buttom that would run the
file browser as root.  Is this possible?

system-logviewer is dead and wasn't a GNOME program besides.  I think you mean
Comment 2 Bill Case 2006-05-10 11:17:32 EDT
Yes I meant gnome-system-log, I got the other name from the 'about' dialogue. 
Gnome has a habit of making up unuseful names and titles.
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 14:33:53 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?
