Comment 1 Ngo Than 2001-05-02 13:21:37 UTC
this problem appears only by using GNOME. The panel in GNOME cannot handle the
%c %i %m %u  in desktop file.

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2001-05-02 15:19:48 UTC
Currently, the code in GNOME only enables % parsing when reading
a "KDE Desktop Entry"; but the code to identify these is only
picking up old .kdelnk files not new .desktop files.

I'll work on a fix.

Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2001-07-17 22:27:29 UTC
Now fixed.

It's great that you fixed this, but could you let us all in on where we can find
a fix for this? I looked on the download area for 7.1 and there does not appear
to be anything there that addresses this proble. This is the one remaining
problem I have to resolve in my 6.0 to 7.1 upgrade.
