Description Christopher Stone 2007-07-27 15:22:37 EDT
The OnlyShowIn directive should be ignored in kmenu-gnome.

See the discussion pointed to in URL field for more information.
Comment 1 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-07-28 10:04:33 EDT
I'm closing this as a NOTABUG since on an opened gnome session, there is NO 
kmenu.

No kmenu == No kmenu-gnome
Comment 2 Christopher Stone 2007-07-28 10:52:37 EDT
What??  This is for a KDE session, not a GNOME session.  Do you not understand
the issue, or am I just confused about what this package actually does?

NOTE:  The description of this package is pretty terse, so I could be wrong, but
is not this package designed to show a GNOME menu under KDE?  I apologize if I'm
wrong, maybe this is for gnome-menus package??
Comment 3 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-07-28 14:46:58 EDT
Yes, perhaps since I don't see OnlyShowIn in kmenu-gnome's desktop files. 

It is designed to 
* REorganize (take gnome/gtk applications under different kmenu menus and 
place them under ONE kmenu -> gnome menu)
AND 
* ADD missing gnome/gtk applications under:
kmenu -> gnome menu
see http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger2/768/1924/1600/kmenu-gnome.png

by the way what you were proposing to remove was REMOVING the MAIN feature of 
this application.
Comment 4 Christopher Stone 2007-07-30 14:02:40 EDT
I apologize for the late reply, I was away for the weekend.

The problem occurs with desktop files that are not packaged with kmenu-gnome. 
For example, banshee should show up under Gnome->Sound&Video when installed, but
it does not because it has a OnlyShowIn directive.

In addition, looking at your screenshot and comparing to what I see here.  I am
missing the Accessability, Accessories, Education, About Gnome, and Help menu
items.  I am also missing the icons[1].

So this has to do with banshee.

Your icon set doesn't provide those icons.
Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2007-07-30 20:16:33 EDT
Well, if you read the discussion pointed to by the URL you will see it was
decided that it is better for kmenu-gnome to ignore OnlyShowIn, rather than fix
all the KDE/GNOME apps which inappropriately use OnlyShowIn.
Comment 7 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-08-01 06:52:07 EDT
Ok, then this bug is a call for upstream fix, and not a packaging issue, 
right?

To be honest, I'm a bit confused with this matter.
Comment 8 Christopher Stone 2007-08-01 12:39:50 EDT
The Fedora Packaging Committee will be discussing this in more detail at the
Aug. 7th meeting.

So let's just put this on hold until we hear from the FPC on the issue.
Comment 9 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-08-16 08:41:11 EDT
What is the status of this now ?


Comment 10 Christopher Stone 2007-08-16 09:29:30 EDT
according to the wiki page it was not discussed on the 7th and no meeting took
place last week.  I'll see if I can press this issue for discussion next Tuesday.
Comment 11 Ariszló 2007-08-19 18:05:28 EDT
kmenu-gnome does not read *.desktop files, consequently it cannot ignore
directives in them. It is just a package containing a configuration file and
some icons.
Comment 12 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-08-19 18:22:15 EDT
Christopher, I'm introducing Ariszló (upstream) to you.

We will see what is the status of this bug after the upcoming meeting on 
tuesday.
Comment 13 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-08-26 19:40:26 EDT
