Screenshot of the menu
Description of problem:
After a netinstall of Fedora 16 x86_64 with french support, some parts of the xfce menu appears in english and some icons are missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a netinstall of Fedora 16
2. Select graphical desktop, then unselect Gnome, select Xfce and french translation.
3. Select default configuration when first log in.
Some parts of the menu appears in english and some icons are missing.
All entries in the menu in french and all the icons are here.
In regard to the menu items which appear to be in english, it will be fixed by the next release. Indeed the traduction team has done the job.
Otherwise for missing icons, do you use particular icon theme or no-default applications ?
It will be nice if you could give a screenshot of icon problem, because in your current shared picture I don't see missing icon.
Sorry about the icons, i misspoked. I meant that some icons are not good (in my screen, the icons relating to Accesories, Multimedia, Network, Office, System).
Maybe this is due to the "bad translating" : the icons are linked to the name of the entry in french and not in english. Or maybe the good icons are missing in the default icon theme that i use.
In all cases, the icons were not like that in Fedora 15.
I've installed xfce thanks to 'yum groupinstall xfce' command. Everything is fine in the menu.
The 'bad translation' has no influence on the icon. The icon is defined by the 'Icon' entry in /usr/share/desktop-directories/*.directory. Maybe it's a previous problem with garcon which monitors *.menu files, but resolved at present.
What's your 'xfce4-panel' and 'garcon' version?
For me : xfce4-panel 4.8.6 and garcon 0.1.9
I propose you to make an update and see if there're betterments.
Otherwise you can see (and share) /etc/xdg/menus/xfce-applications.menu and /usr/share/desktop-directories/Network.directory . I'll share mine to permit you to compare.
(Network icon malfunctions on your xfce desktop).

/etc/xdg/menus/xfce-applications.menu version xfce 4.8.6
Created attachment 530865 [details]
/usr/share/desktop-directories/Network.directory version xfce 4.8.6
The only difference between you and me is that I didn't have Network.directory in /usr/share/desktop-directories/. After a copy-paste of your in this folder and a reboot, Internet entry in the menu is correct. I gather I don't have the others .directory files related to the others entries in my menu.
Because it's a problem specific to XFCE (package, missing *.directory files...) you should notify the XFCE team or the maintainer. Indeed it's clearly not a traduction problem.
However if you want your missing *.directory files, I can share mine by e-mail. Indeed I don't know what package provides *.directory files (garcon, xfdesktop, xfce4-panel ? maybe... ).
Yeah. Thanks for your time :) I close this bug report now ?
Don't mention that. Yes you can close this.
