Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 986852
Outdated GRASS desktop file
Last modified: 2014-03-16 05:02:04 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:
Thanks a lot!

Thanks Markus! The encoding item is deprecated though:
