Description Nigel Horne 2005-07-08 11:10:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
If I attempt to run switchdesk on a machine without GNOME installed I get an error:

"ERROR: GNOME not installed!"

That is true, but it would be useful if it listed the RPMs I need to install, or better still asked me to pop in the DVD and install it for me, or download from the YUM site.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. switchdesk gnome

Actual Results:  ERROR: GNOME not installed

Expected Results:  Told me what RPMs are needed, or offer to install for me.

ok, the new switchdesk-4.0.7-1 will now tell you:

Error: GNOME is not installed on your machine! To install GNOME, please type 
       yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

it will install GNOME then.
