Description Zirneklitis 2013-07-22 05:01:08 EDT
Description of problem:

An old grass.desktop file is used in Fedora distributions. Starting from 6.4.3 a refined grass.desktop can be found in GRASS source package. This desktop file should be used.

The main  advantages:

1. Menu entries (categories)  are  the same as for QGIS etc. (Education;Science;Geoscience;Geography;)
2. More languages are available.

A patch should be applied to this desktop file:
