Description of problem:
If, for whatever reason, the applet dies, i cannot add it again to the panel. I
looked to all applet menus, and to all other menus available, and there's no
trace of rhn-applet anywhere.
I think rhn-applet should be added to the applet menus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Try to add it again to the panel
Actual Results: Can't find the applet in the menus.
Expected Results: The applet should be somewhere in the applet menus, so that
the user can re-add it to the panel.
Looks like rhn-applet is the only one having a .desktop file in /usr/share/applets
That makes me think this directory is not used anymore. What's the new directory
to be used for the .desktop files of new or custom applets?
This is a pretty good point. I upgraded from 7.3.94 to 8.0 and the
rhn-applet-gui was not available by default. I have to start it manually on my
upgraded machine, but it works without a hitch on my newly installed workstation.
The applet is available from the following menus:
- Main menu
- System tools submenu
- Red Hat Network Alert Icon
This should work fine assuming you have a notification area
in your panel.
To start a notification area:
- right click on the panel
- select add to this panel
- then Utility
- then notification area
I you have an rhn-applet running in the background it may appear in
the notification area when added.
