Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 20407
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:42 EDT
I feel the user*.desktop entries should be moved from System to Utilities.
System should only contain administration tools for root. In particular,
In particular, a site administrator should be able to remove read access
from the System directory for regular users (if they arn't allowed to use
tools why not hide them in the first place).
Please don't hide any administrator's tool from regular users' menu!
I buy a RedHat Linux "Personal version" because I use it as my Personal
Computer! In fact, we should push the world to switch to use RedHat Linux as
desktop computer. Having both Windows and Linux computers co-exist is just too
much trouble for end users and developers. The world is giving us a chance to
conquere PC market, please don't reject ourselves!
You still use Windows at home?!
This bug should be CLOSED. But it's status is still NEW.
What do you expect a Personal Computer user to use system utilities? Log off
then log on as root? Forget about "root", folks. RedHat linux "personal" edition
means there are no system administartor in this world!! Every user is an
administrator! A regular should be able to access root's utilities as easily as
You totally misunderstood my request. What I want is that all tools which are
only intended for the sysadmin are in one directory such that the sysadmin
can, IF THE SYSADMIN WANTS, hide these items from regular users. I do
NOT SAY that they should be hidden in a default configuration.
This is really more related to desktop menu structure rather than usermode. It
applies to Gnome as well as KDE, but I'm going to assign to Gnome since I have
to pick one.
With the way menus are done in Rawhide, this bug doesn't really apply anymore.
There's a single file you can edit to change what's in the menus, and the
folders/categories are different.
