Description Preston Brown 2002-03-27 14:53:54 EST
Description of Problem:    
1. There are three different entries for playing with Time:   
  a. Date/Time Pr... (which looks horrible)   
  b. Date and Time   
  c. Timezone   
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.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-02 08:30:32 EST
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.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-02 08:32:11 EST
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.
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-02 10:01:43 EST
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).
