Description Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-01 16:09:29 EST
Description of problem:
KNetworkManager is a KDE-Only application, however it appears in the System menu
in GNOME. To prevent that, add "OnlyShowIn=KDE" to the desktop file, with a
patch or with the "--add-only-show-in KDE" option of desktop-file-install

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Dennis Gilmore 2007-03-01 16:28:40 EST
knetworkmanager can be used just as well in gnome as KDE. 
Comment 2 Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-01 17:10:15 EST
I don't agree, GNOME has nm-applet which does the same thing and integrates
better with GNOME (gnome-keyring)
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-03-01 17:39:20 EST
same as kpowersave, imo, both nm-applet and knetworkmanager should be
visable/usable from *any* desktop environment.
Comment 4 Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-02 01:53:17 EST
Being technically usable and being in the menu is a different story. If feels
very strange to have kpowersave and knetworkmanager in the GNOME menu when there
are GNOME-specific equivalents. Knetworkmanager was even developped only to have
a KDE version of nm-applet.

When you have a multiuser system where one user uses KDE and the other uses
GNOME, those applications really look out of place in the other DE's menu.
Comment 5 Doncho N. Gunchev 2007-09-30 17:53:51 EDT
The same is true for k3b and nautilus-cd-burner, koffice and ooo... and also 
works in reverse.

What about a package like kmenu-gnome that moves some programs under different 
submenu (GNOME in this case). For example gmenu-kde rpm can move 
knetworkmanager, kpowersave... under KDE menu.
