Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 444280
Htop doesn't appear when run from the Gnome menu.
Last modified: 2008-06-08 08:27:28 EDT
Description of problem:
If I run Htop from Gnome's main menu; Applications->System Tools->Htop, nothing
seems to happen. I guess this might be due to a fault in file
/usr/share/applications/fedora-htop.desktop . In the desktop file, is a line:
Exec=htop. I think it runs Htop, but the program doesn't appear since it doesn't
have a terminal.
I remember having this working sometime in the past, but can't remember when it
started to behave like this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Applications->System Tools->Htop from the Gnome main menu.
Htop should open in a terminal.
htop-0.7-2.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
Indeed there was a bug in desktop file. Terminal=true was missing. It should be
htop-0.7-2.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update htop'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F8/FEDORA-2008-3303
The package seems to not have been synced to the mirrors, but I downloaded the
same package (I think) from koji.fedoraproject.org. The menu item works now as I
think it should work. Thanks for the fix.
