Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 85166
Gnome menu tree enhancements
Last modified: 2007-03-27 00:01:10 EDT
Description of problem: Two minor nits: (1) I think the Gnome menu entry
entitled "Sound & Video" should be renamed "Multimedia". I think it gets lost
in between "Programming" and "System Settings." (2) I think the current
"Preferences", "System Settings" and "System Tools" menu entries should be
combined into one "Settings and Tools". Then, within that you could have a
submenu entitled "User Preferences", another entitled "System Settings" and a
third entitled "Tools and Utilities". Or something like that. I think "System
Settings" and "System Tools" sound too much alike and I can never remember what
is in which one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
i love it,
it's true that the menu item gets overlooked by newbies, because it's inbetween
i think it would actually help redhat a lot to simplify the menu's (getting rid
of "extra's" was only a minor step foward).
A switching user just doesn't fathom why some packages are in the "more"
submenu, and i don't really see any point in it either.
It would be very nice to group them in another sense, as proposed by the OP. in
the main menu put a folder, with subfolders based on relation (not some apps,
and more apps)
Settings and tools
--- System Settings
--- System Tools
would make a lot more sense IMHO
Comments noted. This isn't really something that can be resolved one menu folder
at a time in abstract discussion; the current layout involves a global plan and
user testing. So the bug is just "rework menus", that is a planned future
project, but I don't want to keep bugs open for each individual possible change,
as it is one global task.
