Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 976987
In GNOME Settings unable to select "Import with gThumb"
Last modified: 2015-02-17 10:39:24 EST
Description of problem:
I want to use gThumb to import photos from my camera so (using GNOME) I go to the Settings app and select Details/Removable Media.
Under Photos I would expect to be able to select "Import with gThumb" but I am not since gthumb-import.desktop has NoDisplay=true.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just removing that key would have the drawback that gthumb-import would appear in the standard menus. Avoiding that is the primary reason NoDisplay=true is set.
I have double-checked the desktop-entry specification (http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/desktop-entry-spec-latest.html) and I believe that the usage of that key in gthumb is according to the spec:
NoDisplay means "this application exists, but don't display it in the menus". This can be useful to e.g. associate this application with MIME types, so that it gets launched from a file manager (or other apps), without having a menu entry for it (there are tons of good reasons for this, including e.g. the netscape -remote, or kfmclient openURL kind of stuff).
So far I would consider this a problem in the gnome-control-center: the drop-down list for the action of a particular media should not omit applications which have the "NoDisplay" set.
Moving the bug to gnome-control-center.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
