Description louisgtwo 2002-12-26 18:23:05 EST
the .desktop file has the wrong categories so it shows up under Extras/Other in
the gnome menu.
Comment 1 louisgtwo 2002-12-30 15:11:29 EST
redhat-install-packages.desktop has no catagories.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-31 02:45:26 EST
Havoc, Than --

This desktop file exists because (from what I understand -- I didn't add it)
it's needed so that konqueror can launch redhat-install-packages when you select
packages and say to install them.  It's not ever an app that's meant to be
called without any packages as arguments.  So what should I do here?
Comment 3 Ngo Than 2003-01-03 06:38:43 EST
you have to add NoDisplay=true into redhat-config-packages.desktop.
KDE menu will not display it.
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2003-01-03 08:03:49 EST
It's fixed in CVS. Jeremy, please checkout from CVS ;-)
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-03 10:44:51 EST
Okay, will be fixed in 1.1.4-1.  Thanks Than.
Comment 6 louisgtwo 2003-01-03 22:05:43 EST
Seems not to work in gnome though.
Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-03 22:29:16 EST
Yeah gnome doesn't do NoDisplay because it only uses .desktop files for menus.
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2005-04-22 00:16:52 EDT
The new menu-spec implementation in gnome-menus supports NoDisplay
