Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 69463
desktop file fixes
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:03 EDT
Needs Categories including at least X-Red-Hat-Extra;Internet;Application;
Comment need not reiterate the "pan" part, maybe
"Read Usenet news articles"
move to /usr/share/applications
Namespace the desktop filename, "net-pan.desktop"
As for "Comment"."A News Reader" is better.Since it can be used to read any
kinds of news from many newgroup server,not only usenet.
As for the name of desktop, gnome-pan.desktop is better.It takes the same style
like other gnome applications such as gnome-dictionary.desktop.
Do you plan to move all the gnome/internet applications to
/usr/share/applications without more directories?
[bhuang@station111 pan-0.12.0]$ ls /usr/share/gnome/apps/Internet/
balsa.desktop gaim.desktop gftp.desktop pan.desktop
ethereal.desktop galeon.desktop gq.desktop
The Comment field should be a verb phrase such as "Read Internet news" rather than
a description such as "A News Reader"
The namespace is for the vendor of the desktop file, the GNOME project does not
ship Pan - so net-pan.desktop would be preferred. gnome- prefix is for things
that GNOME ships, not everything that links to GNOME libraries.
All desktop files should indeed be moved to /usr/share/applications/, separate
bugs have been filed for each desktop file.
*** Bug 70731 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Should be fixed in pan-0.12.1-2.
