Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84421
/etc/X11/applnk entries don't show up in the kdemenus
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:17 EDT
Description of problem:
None of the desktop entries in /etc/X11/applnk/Games shows up in
the K-menu under games.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Maelstrom.desktop xpilot.desktop xpilots.desktop
None of them can be found in the "Games" or "More Games" menu.
Same if you install some third party games which put their
desktop files there.
Maelstrom.,xpilot,xpilots should show up in the games menue
Probably there are other categories affected as well.
it's a desktop-file-utils problem. moving it to desktop-file-utils
The menu items may be in the Other menu.
Should also file bugs against maelstrom and xpilot for having .desktop
files in the wrong place...
desktop-file-utils needs to do better making up categories from
the dir in /etc/X11/applnk
Maelstrom is fixed. We don't ship xpilot any more.
Yes, the items are in the "Other" menu.
Seems to be fine in desktop-file-utils-0.3-5.

It seems like this is still not the case: third party files placed into
/etc/X11/applnk/Games don't show up under "Games" but under "Other"
I know that's not the case, but the bug was that they don't show up at all,
not the Games vs. Other thing.
In the next release the menu subsystem will be totally rewritten anyhow,
so it the Games vs. Other fix isn't really an issue that needs tracking
I don't think.
