Last modified: 2010-06-28 04:28:27 EDT
Description of problem:
When I try to create a new item in menu I cannot choose any icons, as they are not shown in windows (i.e. folder seems empty)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.select to create a new item anywhere
3.try to select an icon
No icons are shown
Icon to be shown
same problem when I want to create a launcher on my desktop
Which directory does the icon chooser open with ?
And is the directory actually empty on disk ?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I confirm that it has not been solved
I realized that System monitor (although installed) was missing in my
menu (I would say that at a certain point it has been deleted during
so using System/Preferences/Menus I added a new item to existing menu,
but I couldn't find the correct icon on my PC....where should be the
correct icon be located???
I found only utilities-system-monitor.svg in /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/apps.
forgot to say in order to be clear that when I go to
/usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/apps in alacarte, I don't see any svg
file, that are really present in such folder.
You didn't answer my question in comment 1
I follow this procedure
I open alacarte, add a ner launcher in System tool
I digit gnome-system-monitor in the empty line and at this point I get this icon:
I assume that the correct icon is
/usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/apps/utilities-system-monitor.svg but if I go to that directory with alacarte I get an empty window
If I check I have this file in that directory with about 90 elements :
Please note that on other two F11 systems menu is correct for System monitor (i.e. it is present and not to be added)
Forgot to answer to comment #1 because I didn't check after switching from rawhide to F11.
Please note that this system is a F11 that was upgraded from rawhide.
I would propose to investigate why gnome-system-monitor does not show up in the system tools menu even though it is installed.
Some useful things to try:
rpm --verify gnome-system-monitor
rpm --verify gnome-system-monitor gives no error
bash: inspect: command not found
rm ~/.local/share/applications/gnome-system-monitor.* o.k.
No way to have it on my menu.I disinstalled it and re-installed with no result
Please note that same application for different user is shown in his menu...
should it work if I delete gconf & gconfd folders??? then log out an log in???
I removed ./gconf ./gconfd ./gnome2 folders, logout login and now my menu shows gnome-system-monitor....
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
