Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216076
wine places icons in ugly unthemed "Other" menu
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:49 EST
Description of problem:
The following desktop files:
list the non-existent "Wine" category and nothing else (useful), which leads to
their placement in the generic catch-all "Other" menu.
Notepad should probably be in the Accessories menu, the rest should probably be
in System Tools.
It was intended to move these out. The fix was incomplete, though. Firstly,
WineMine should be moved away the Games category and moved to Wine. Secondly,
/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu shall be patched (probably by %post) in such a
way that Wine submenu would be created and all this junk would be placed in there.
Well, according to specs, /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged shallbe used. More

File needed to solve the problem
Placing this file in /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged solves the problem. Now
you only need to change the WineMine category, and perhaps add the wine glass
icon to the new submenu. Good luck.
Why aren't wine.menu, Wine.directory, and the wine icon in the wine package?
Thanks for you work and hints Julian I will add it to the wine package for the
You're welcome. If you would like to add an icon for the submenu, Wine.directory
file (with contents similar to a desktop entry) shall be created and placed in
/usr/share/desktop-directories. I have found a tango wine glass icon somewhere,
but I think that a generic one should be shipped by default.
