Description Mike Hearn 2004-03-06 21:52:19 UTC
Summary says it all really. Software installed from the source will by default puts its .desktop files into /usr/local/share/applications, which are not merged in the default FC1 menu setup. Why is this the case?
Comment 1 Bryan W Clark 2004-12-01 21:00:38 UTC
Mike, this should be fixed by now, can you confirm it still doesn't work?
Comment 2 Mike Hearn 2004-12-02 15:26:13 UTC
Fixed in FC3 or Rawhide?
Comment 3 Bryan W Clark 2005-01-05 20:14:32 UTC
Rawhide Does <LegacyDir>/usr/local/share/applications</LegacyDir> fix this when added to /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu
Comment 4 Mike Hearn 2005-01-06 12:14:02 UTC
No that doesn't do what you want, it should be merged the same way that /usr/share/applications is. <LegacyDir> is about Windows/KDE2 style menu layouts where the directories and files defined how it looks. /usr/local/share/applications is just a directory in which you dump arbitrary .desktop files
Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-05-11 22:13:00 UTC
Fedora Core 1 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 6 Mike Hearn 2005-05-11 22:49:35 UTC
Still no <MergedDir> for /usr/local/share/applications ....
Comment 7 Robert Minsk 2005-09-14 19:56:49 UTC
<MergeDir> will not work. <MergeDir> only looks for .menu files and not .desktop files. I guess you would want is <AppDir>/usr/local/share/applications</AppDir>. You could get the desired effect by adding /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged/local.menu: <!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN" "http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/menu-spec/1.0/menu.dtd"> <Menu> <AppDir>/usr/local/share/applications</AppDir> <DirectoryDir>/usr/local/share/desktop-directories</Directory> <MergeDir>/usr/local/share/menus</MergeDir> </Menu>
Comment 8 Marius Andreiana 2005-11-03 09:59:10 UTC
Ray, this is an easyfix, please implement before FC5 test 1 this month. Thanks!
Comment 9 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-11-03 19:48:01 UTC
Hi Marius, This should definitely get looked at before FC5 is released. Not sure about before test1.
Comment 10 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-02-02 02:01:11 UTC
Hey guys, I think this should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide. If it's not, please reopen.
