Description John Pye 2008-02-08 23:03:47 EST
The entry for GIMP in the GNOME menu in Fedora 7 (and I assume Fedora 8 too?)
has a different icon to the main GIMP application, leading to a loss of visual
continuity.

Also, in the Applications menu, GIMP is listed as "GNU Image Manipulation
Program", but when GIMP launches, it never refers to itself this way.

I suggest that anyone using GIMP will expect it to be titled as such in the
menu, rather than this strange choice of name that is not a 'generic' title (eg
"Media player") nor is it the common name for the program. Most users do not
know what GIMP stands for.

This is very likely because your desktop environment doesn't use the icons
shipped with the gimp package, but their own icons instead. File a bug there if
you're so inclined ;-).

I haven't changed anything w.r.t. naming the app in the menus, "GNU Image
Manipulation Program" is the name as upstream want to have it. You would have to
take this one there (http://bugzilla.gimp.org) as I'm not willing to deviate in
this area.
