Description Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-24 08:15:22 EDT
Description of problem:
With the new menu layout introduced by new kde-settings we have two entries for
kcontrol now:
1. K-Menu -> Control Center
2. K-Menu -> (Actions) -> Settings -> Control Center

I think it would be better to move kcontrol to "K-Menu -> Settings" (the normal
submenu, no the one in "Actions"). So we don't have a double entry for kcontrol
in the top menu. But if someone disable "Actions" there's still a menu entry for it.
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2007-05-24 11:12:01 EDT
It seems the kde-settings removes/changes many KDE settings after splitting!
here in this case, 2 actions "Settings", "System menu".

For sane KDE default setting, we should not overload the main menu (K-menu). 
The main menu should keep clearly. ATM we have 2 Settings in the main menu, 
it's confusing!

We should drop the 2 actions, "Settings", "System menu" from k-menu. It looks 
clearly like in RHEL5/FC6.

It shouldn't, we're still using exactly the same (upstream) kde applications.menu.

Where does Actions come from anyway?
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-05-24 11:25:55 EDT
Hrm, Actions appeared somewhere between kde-settings-3.5-21 and kde-settings-3.5-28
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2007-05-24 11:31:51 EDT
it's not kde applications.menu. it's 
in /usr/share/kde-settings/kde-profile/default/share/config/kickerrc

And it's not the same like before the splitting, the complete [menus] group, 
which i made for FC6/RHEL5, has been removed in kde-settings!
Comment 5 Ngo Than 2007-05-24 11:32:55 EDT
we should be carefull about the default setting.
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2007-05-24 11:42:31 EDT
Ah, (not as intuitive as it could be) but I found it: 
kicker optional menus -> Actions

So, the suggestion is to have 

Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2007-05-24 12:13:41 EDT
I agree with Than, this should be reset to as it was in FC6, I wonder if this 
will pass rel-eng for f7-final tagging or if it will have to go to updates.
Comment 8 Ngo Than 2007-05-24 12:16:15 EDT
yes, it's what i have mean on Comment #4. Why have you removed it? The current 
kickerrc in kde-settings (ConfigFile) looks broken. The cut-out of kickerc.





the kde-setting really needs to be cleaned up. I plan to do it next week.
Comment 9 Ngo Than 2007-05-24 12:21:17 EDT
Kevin, it's probably too late to revert the change, but i will try to do this.
if it won't pass rel-eng for f7-final, we can add it in f7 update,
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2007-05-24 12:22:59 EDT
> yes... Why have you removed it? 

I have no strong feelings one way or the other, I just personally liked it
better, that's all, and that's what kde-redhat packaging had been using...

Excellent, more than kickerrc?  If so, what did you have in mind?
Comment 11 Kevin Kofler 2007-05-24 12:26:18 EDT
FYI, it's not up to date with the latest kde-settings, but I've done diffs 
between the previous Fedora KDE settings and the kde-settings ones on May 15:

Thanks Kevin.
Comment 13 Rex Dieter 2007-07-03 06:05:49 EDT
I believe most/all of the suggests here have been incorporated in the latest
kde-settings (though it's difficult to tell sometimes from the cryptic cvs
commit comments... hint hint). :)
