Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 67991
nothing happens when I run gdict-applet
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:52 EDT
This is in Limbo-re0701.1.
When I install gnome-utils and run gdict-applet, nothing happens. I expected
the gdict applet to appear in the panel.
Also, what happened to the standalone version of gdict? Seems like I saw it in
some earlier builds, but it seems to have disappeared.
Does it work if you choose the applet from the menus? You probably have to do that.
For standalone, it's in gnome-utils. Is gnome-utils installed? I think it was
missing from comps.
No, I already have gnome-utils installed. I can't find gdict-applet in the
menus anywhere. Also, I don't see gdict anymore, just gdict-applet.
Install gnome-utils from Beehive and then open a terminal and type 'gd<Tab><Tab>
and you'll see gdict-applet but no gdict.
It's called gnome-dictionary. It's on my test machine.
Oh, I see it now. The old name switch-a-roo trick. gnome-dictionary works fine
for me now.
However, I still can't find gdict-applet in the menu, nor does running it from
the command line actually do anything.
Also, in a naming convention sense, since gdict was renamed to gnome-dictionary,
it seems that gdict-applet should be renamed to gnome-dictionary-applet.
Seems we should either fix or remove gdict-applet, which appears broken.
It works fine for me, Brent was just on crack and didn't see it in the menu.
If it has other bugs please file.
I see it in the menu now. I still can't find gdict-applet anymore. That's fine
with me, however. I like gnome-dictionary as a standalone app, but I always
thought the applet was kind of useless. I'm not a big applet fan, though.
OK I showed it to Brent and now he agrees it's in the menu ;-)
Fix confirmed with gnome-utils-2.0.0-5.
