Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 429239
diveintopython-txt is (almost) empty
Last modified: 2008-01-18 20:05:31 EST
Description of problem:
diveintopython-txt only contains
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install diveintopython-txt
2. rpm -ql diveintopython-txt
diveintopython-txt should provide or pull dependency for
/usr/share/diveintopython-txt/diveintopython.txt as the desktop file tries to
clicking the desktop file should open the document
imo, diveintopython doesnt need to provide .desktop file, especially for the
-txt and -html where it will possibly start up gedit/firefox which might not be
desirable. Plus the other diveintopython-* provides .desktop files with the same
Name tag, and it can confuses users. Furthermore, iirc, .desktop files are meant
for launching applications, not documents.
It uses xdg-open so that shouldn't be an issue it will default to whatever is
the preference on the desktop you are using.
When I went through the review process I was allowed the desktop files so I have
left them in there. I personally don't see a reason to remove them.
The issues are fixed in the next version btw.
