Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 809499
improve anaconda launcher description
Last modified: 2012-10-23 17:27:09 EDT
Description of problem:
By default anaconda launcher on LiveCD has name "Install to Hard Drive" (displayed as a tooltip in Gnome Shell Overview). Several people noted that "hard drive" term is becoming obsolete, because we can install to thumb drives, SSDs, etc. They proposed changing the name to "Install Fedora" and I agree it's better. Thus proposing here as an enhancement.
We should probably also change the description.
$ cat /usr/share/applications/liveinst.desktop
Name=Install to Hard Drive
Comment=Install the live CD to your hard disk
Comment=Install Fedora onto this machine
(English correction might be needed.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F17 Beta RC2
With the new welcome screen in the live installer, do you think this bug report is still valid?
I think it still makes sense to rename the launcher. It is shown in GNOME dash, installed applications list and also in all non-GNOME desktops. "Install Fedora" would be nice. OTOH I understand that can cause you some troubles, because you'd need to patch it for RHEL install media.
What about the cases where non-Fedora distributions want to use Anaconda?
Really, I don't think Anaconda should own that file at all, it should come from the spin so that they can customize it as they see fit.
The new 'Welcome to Fedora' also says 'Install to Hard Drive' so we're being consistent.
It was created to mirror Anaconda's launcher name, and the welcome screen is now even in your code base, but hey.
