Description Michael Catanzaro 2013-08-06 21:06:38 EDT
Description of problem:

Since gnome-abrt is hidden under Sundry in the GNOME Shell overview, while system-config-abrt is not, system-config-abrt is unfortunately now significantly easier to access (probably accidentally) than the real app.  It even shows up before the real abrt in a search for "abrt" (unlucky?). That they have identical icons does not help.

But I think system-config-abrt should not appear in the overview, or in other desktops' menus, at all.  One of the (unofficial) goals for 3.6 was for only "real applications" to be shown in the overview; this is why e.g. Software Settings was removed from the overview.  Configuration settings belong instead in the app itself.

Unfortunately it'd be completely inaccessible if removed. gnome-abrt should either learn how to launch its own config app, or perhaps better, these settings should be merged into gnome-abrt's configuration dialog.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): abrt 2.9.6-2.fc19
