Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 494221
Some startup applications are missing useful descriptions
Last modified: 2009-04-06 00:21:52 EDT
Description of problem:
In System/Preferences/Startup Applications, some of the items listed are missing useful descriptions. e.g. "AT SPI Registry Wrapper", "GNOME Keyring Daemon", etc. Others like "IMSettings Applet" have a description of "IMSettings Applet", which doesn't tell the user what it does, or why he would want to run it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "Startup Applications" from the Preferences menu, browse the items
Some items don't have a useful, informative description telling the user why he would want to have that service started.
Useful descriptions. For example, "Print Queue Applet" says "System tray icon for managing print jobs", which is informative and helpful.
Many also use the generic "gears" icon, instead of having a unique icon for that service, but that's of lower importance.
Theses problems need to be reported against the individual packages containing the problematic services. gnome-session does not provide these descriptions.
