Kenolaba has the same problem.
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2003-02-27 17:18:41 EST
It seems that Exec=kasteroids %i %m -caption "%c" is not correct handled from
Comment 3 Eugenia Loli-Queru 2003-07-25 16:42:39 EDT
The problem still exists on Severn and it is even worse than on RHL9. 90% of 
all the KDE apps launched from the Gnome memu don't have a Title in the window 
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2003-07-27 20:21:50 EDT
George maybe you could look at this?
Comment 5 George Lebl 2003-07-28 13:12:09 EDT
This is not a bug in the panel but either in the .desktop files or in the spec.
 If you look at

Then the %c is meant to expand to the Comment field, however the relevant
.desktop files have no comment field.  I suspect KDE is then breaking the spec
here.  Since the spec contains this stuff because of KDE however mostly I
suppose we should fix the spec.  I'm mailing xdg-list.

Note that there is more broken in the % expansion then meets the eye.  %m is not
in the spec and explicitly disallowed, %i seems to expand in KDE to something
like two arguments "-icon foo", and %k has very vague description of what it is
(I assumed the name of the desktop file)

Patch to fix KDE app launching from gnome

The spec is very vague, and KDE breaks the spec in several places.  This patch
is what I commited on HEAD and should apply to stable as well since nothing
changed here lately.  Basically it will do things the way KDE does things and I
suppose we should put that in the spec.  Mailed xdg-list about this already.
Comment 7 George Lebl 2003-07-29 18:11:24 EDT
Note the patch is for gnome-desktop, not gnome-panel, I forgot to mention that

Seems to be working fine in Raw Hide and should have been working
correctly in Fedora Core 1 also.
