Description petrosyan 2007-08-08 22:49:39 EDT
Description of problem:
According to GNOME HIG a menu item tooltip should be phrased as a transitive
verb. Ri-li's menu item tooltip ("Arcade game where you drive a toy wood
engine") is not phrased as a verb. Maybe "Drive a toy wood engine" would be better.

Affected file is /usr/share/applications/fedora-Ri-li.desktop

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
less /usr/share/applications/fedora-Ri-li.desktop
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2007-08-09 01:47:30 EDT
Fixed in CVS, this will get picked up with the F-8 mass rebuild.

Note, please do not file more of these, Ri-Li is not a GNOME program, and even
for GNOME programs the HIG is wrong. In this case your suggestion is OK, but for
example with spreadsheets there is little use in having all 3 off oocalc,
gnumeric and siag say: "perform calculation, analyse information and manage
lists in spreadsheats" as tooltip, it is be much better to use the tooltips to
describe the program in such a way that the differences become clear.
