Description Toralf 2001-11-12 08:09:51 EST
/usr/share/gnome/apps/Graphics/ee.desktop has

Exec=ee %f

where it should have just


This causes "%f" (literally) to be passed as extra argument e.g. on
drag+drop in Nautilus (which doesn't work anyway, but I'll report that
elsewhere); GNOME does not expect file name patters or anything in launcher

We are dropping ee from the distribution (use gqview, nautilus, etc. instead).
