Description hannes 2010-11-28 12:39:38 UTC
Description of problem:
The file /usr/share/xsessions/xfce4.desktop contains a wrong name for Xfce:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=XFce 4
Name[eo]=Facoj 4
Name[pa]=XFce ੪
Name[sv]=Xfce 4

The name should be Xfce 4 and not XFce 4. I think that is the reason why the name of Xfce is wrongly displayed in gdm.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wrong Xfce name in gdm session dialog
Actual results:

Expected results:
Xfce spelled right.

This is easy to fix, but at the same time it might be good to fix the comment too, which is currently: 

Comment=The Cholesterol Free Desktop Environment, version 4. A desktop environment reminiscent of CDE

However, it's translated, so not sure how to retranslate a new line. 
I'd suggest something like: 

Comment=A lightweight, and fully featured desktop environment

Sounds good to me.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2011-01-12 23:34:30 UTC
This is fixed in rawhide with the 4.7 landing... 

The comment is now: 

Use this session to run Xfce as your desktop environment

Which isn't so great. ;) I'd say if we want that changed tho, we should look at fixing it upstream so they can translate it. ;)

I don't think it's bad, the comment is only shown on mouseover and the dropdown should have "Xfce4 Session", right?

Ether way, I have ditched the custom file and used the upstream one, so all changes should happeb upstream. If we want to change "Xfce session" to just "Xfce", we could do this easily, too.
