Description Neil 2009-04-05 15:04:17 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "Startup Applications" from the Preferences menu, browse the items
Actual results:
Some items don't have a useful, informative description telling the user why he would want to have that service started.

Expected results:
Useful descriptions.  For example, "Print Queue Applet" says "System tray icon for managing print jobs", which is informative and helpful.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Neil 2009-04-05 15:11:51 EDT
Many also use the generic "gears" icon, instead of having a unique icon for that service, but that's of lower importance.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2009-04-06 00:21:52 EDT
Theses problems need to be reported against the individual packages containing the problematic services. gnome-session does not provide these descriptions.
