Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 481739
Base KDE applications (e.g. ksysguard) should have OnlyShowIn=KDE
Last modified: 2009-01-28 11:44:10 EST
Description of problem:
GNOME tools such as gnome-system-monitor do not show up on the KDE menu, as they duplicate provided KDE functionalities. However, the reverse is not true: for example, ksysguard shows up in the GNOME menu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kdebase-workspace
2. Log into GNOME
3. Examine the application menu
Two entries for system monitor and several other applications
KDE applications should not show up on other desktops, especially
This affects several kdebase applications as well
I would categorically disagree with the general assertion "KDE applications should not show up on other desktops".
Now, a case-by-case justification for making certain items kde-only may be warranted, and I'd welcome such discussion. Or... perhaps generalizing the discussion is possible too... but either way, bugzilla is likely a poor forum to have such discourse.
Might I suggest taking this issue to a relevant mailing list, perhaps fedora-devel or fedora-desktop?
Closing->NotABug (at least a consensusor guideline is reached on how to better address this).
