Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 62133
several issues with default kontrol-panel entries
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
Description of Problem:
1. There are three different entries for playing with Time:
a. Date/Time Pr... (which looks horrible)
b. Date and Time
We need only 1 -- the first one.
2. Internet Confi... looks like crap
3. What is "RH Network ..." ? That doesn't say anything to anyone. No acronyms please.
In general, all the shortened ... should not be there. You should configure the widget to
wrap long names on word boundaries instead of chopping them off. Overall, this tool looks
less than polished and I'm ashamed to have it on the default desktop.
The entries are controlled by /etc/X11/serverconfig and /etc/X11/sysconfig,
there's nothing kontrol-panel can/will do about those.
I agree about the "..." things, fixing.
The "RH Network" things are from the desktop files of up2date or rhn-register,
there's nothing kontrol-panel can do about those either. Please file new bug
reports against these packages.
The valid part of this report is fixed in 4.2.1-1.
The rest is a problem with the applications kontrol-panel launches (or, more
explicitely, their desktop files).
