Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 809358
Firefox not included in Gnome 3 Dash on LiveCD
Last modified: 2012-04-10 16:26:49 EDT
Description of problem:
If somebody wants to try out Fedora/Gnome 3, he/she probably boots a LiveCD and looks around. But the single most important application (i.e. web browser) does not have an icon in dash (I would expect it top-most). One has to look through all the applications menus to find it (because as a newcomer you don't know the name of the web browser that is included).
But if I install Fedora to the hard drive, Firefox is included in dash correctly. There's some problem in the LiveCD compose process that doesn't include Firefox in dash.
This is just a usability issue, no hard bug, but I consider it important enough.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F17 Beta RC2
Created attachment 574770 [details]
gnome 3 livecd - no web browser
Created attachment 574771 [details]
gnome 3 installed - browser present
proposing as final NTH. You could weasel it not being present as a shortcut as being an Alpha blocker (19) but that's a stretch.
this is fixed in RC4 (and RC3, for that matter) - fixed since http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=spin-kickstarts.git;a=commit;h=9d017bd59a64dc55c84acb54f0ae09777ea7c6f8 .
