Comment 1 Rob Lazzurs 2008-07-01 09:44:20 UTC
I forgot to include the version, sorry.


Comment 2 Neal Becker 2008-07-01 11:10:16 UTC
Sorry, I don't understand.  

I have
rpm -q kdiff3

/usr/share/applications/fedora-kdiff3.desktop says:
Exec=kdiff3 %i %m -caption "%c"

You don't have this?

Comment 3 Rob Lazzurs 2008-07-01 11:32:39 UTC
I have that file and it is correct however the file fluxbox-xdg-menu is having
an issue with is /usr/share/applications/kde/kdiff3plugin.desktop

Comment 4 Neal Becker 2008-07-01 12:57:08 UTC
This doesn't seem to be the correct fix:

+ desktop-file-install --vendor= --dir /var/tmp/rpm/kdiff3-0.9.92-15.fc10-root-
present in group "Desktop Entry", but the type is "Service" while this key is
only valid for type "Application"
Error on file "/var/tmp/rpm/kdiff3-0.9.92-15.fc10-root-
created desktop file
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm/rpm-tmp.24814 (%install)

Comment 5 Rob Lazzurs 2008-07-01 14:18:18 UTC

I would suggest then that maybe the fluxbox-xdg-menu should be excluding that
type of .desktop file however it is not.

Should this be a bug filled against that package, sorry but I am unaware of the
Fedora menu policy.

Just let me know what I have to do.

Thanks again.

Comment 6 Neal Becker 2008-07-01 14:50:49 UTC
Sorry, I'm no expert.  Could you please ask on fedora-devel list?  If you don't
have access, I could do it for you.
