Description of problem:
GNOME cannot invoke many KDE applications on my system, which is
an upgraded Red Hat 7.1 system (from 7.0, from 6.2, from 6.1, from 6.0).
For example, Main Menu (foot)/KDE/Games/Shisen-Sho when selected causes
nothing visible to happen.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start up GNOME.
2,Select Main Menu (foot)/KDE/Games/Shisen-Sho.
3. Nothing visible happens (it should start the game)
Actual Results: Nothing visible happens.
Expected Results: (it should start the game)
I believe the problem is the KDE desktop entry files. I suspect that KDE
is supporting certain "%" entries in KDE desktop enty files that aren't
in the GNOME invoker. When the GNOME invoker just passes these "%"
entries along, the KDE apps silently fail to work.
When I cd to /usr/share/applnk/Games
I see that kshisen.desktop has this value:
Exec=kshisen %i %m -caption "%c"
Changing this line to:
Makes Shisen-sho work fine.
However, the other KDE applications generally still don't work.
This system has been upgraded several times; perhaps some of these files
are obsolete and shouldn't be the primary ones being used.
Fixed in current gnome-core
Exactly which version of the GNOME fix this problem?
I don't find errata PRMs for RH7.1 gnome-core.
I want RedHat to fix this problem on RH7.1.
I have confirmed this one is fixed on RH7.2,though.
I can also confirm that this is fixed in Red Hat 7.2 and 8.0.
