Description Stewart Adam 2007-09-02 17:33:43 UTC
Description of problem:
NoDisplay=True is present in the math openoffice.org desktop files, making that
module of openoffice.org inaccessible from the menu. For example, to start a
drawing, one must start the 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look in the Applications > Office menu

Actual Results:
Menu entries are not visible

Expected Results:
Installed modules appear in the menus

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2007-09-03 07:21:07 UTC
It's deliberate, the UI/UE team decided on which components should be considered
toplevel and visible in the menus, and which ones are to be considered
subcomponents that are typically used inside documents and don't need toplevel

Well, for me this is then a deliberated "BUG".

What made the UI/UE team think that it is the user desire ?
I have used libreoffice-math dayly. And then, my app reads the saved .odf files.

Now, after each "yum update libreoffice", i need to edit the .desktop file and set NoDisplay=False.

Have someone reporting a bug that libreoffice-math IS on menu ?

There is no other way to make this change persistent, like a .rc file ?

Think UI/UE team, Think !

cp /usr/share/applications/libreoffice-math.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
sed -i -e /NoDisplay/d ~/.local/share/applications/libreoffice-math.desktop

Thanks, David !

But i fear the copy on .local folder came to be out to date, if libreoffice developers make some change in original libreoffice-math.desktop.

Anyway, very thanks.

alright, let's take pity on this stuff. Given the changes in gnome3 and all the intervening change in attitudes towards a "fedora core" of minimal menus etc it doesn't make a lot of sense to single out poor little math to be hidden from the default menus anymore, so let's restore "math.desktop"

Comment 7 fer 2011-09-14 06:33:13 UTC

Long live to "math".

Comment 8 David Tardon 2011-11-04 08:22:28 UTC
note that upstream added NoDisplay=true to math.desktop recently

Comment 9 Caolan McNamara 2011-11-04 10:04:29 UTC
The irony.
