Description of problem:

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

How reproducible: every time
Actual results: notepad, regedit, Wine Config, Wine File, Wine Software
Installer, Wine Help are placed in System Tools menu

Expected results: I think it would make more sense if a Wine menu folder was
created in the System Tools menu folder and then these items were placed in that
subfolder. This is minor but i think it would make things less cluttered.

This really is something to think about... I will see to get an opinion from
some other FE people about this... 
Comment 2 Julian Sikorski 2006-10-05 09:46:07 EDT
My 2 cents: I don't know if it's still the case, but when I've installed
Starcraft using wine ages ago a wine menu folder was created and all shortcuts
have gone there. So IMO it would be nice if all created shortcuts were captured
andplaced in such folder, along with wine tools et al.
Comment 3 Julian Sikorski 2006-10-05 09:48:15 EDT
The sortcuts went into ~/.kde/share/applnk/Wine, while
~/.local/share/applications /Wine would be much nicer. Can someone check that?

Actually, i think all of regedit, notepad, winefile and all the other crap,
shouldn't even be in the menu at all. Why would someone wanna use the barely
functional windows notepad instead of more advanced native editors? Same thing
for the file browser thing, or whatever it is. And why would anyone wanna mess
in the windows registry when not in windows? and if someone wants to, he can
create his own shortcut, or launch it on command line...

I have two comments to the fix:
- WineMine is still in Games menu
- In KDE wine apps appear in “Lost and Found” section, while in Gnome under
“Other” one
