Description Kevin Kofler 2005-06-09 23:20:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; H010818)

Description of problem:
Problem 1. The MIME type entry in fedora-qgo.desktop is invalid and causes update-desktop-database to complain (and apparently to refuse to complete its job, because new entries only appear in the menu after removing the invalid MIME type).
Problem 2. fedora-qgo.desktop is also missing a category. The only category set is X-Fedora. It should be in the Games category.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Problem 1. Try running update-desktop-database after installing qgo and notice how you get an error.
Problem 2. Look for qgo in the Games section of the menu (I'm using KDE, but I don't think it's any different in GNOME) and notice it isn't there. Check the desktop file and notice how there is no category set other than X-Fedora.  

Additional info:

Here's the error message from update-desktop-database for the first problem:
# update-desktop-database
File '/usr/share/applications/fedora-qgo.desktop' contains invalid MIME type 'Application' that is missing a slash

qgo-1.0.1-5.fc3 is building now, which should fix both of these errors

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2005-06-19 01:57:23 UTC
This is indeed fixed in qgo-1.0.1-5.fc3, but not in qgo-1.0.1-5.fc4, which 
still suffers from both of these problems.

Comment 3 Chris Ricker 2005-06-25 19:17:19 UTC
very odd, since 1.0.1-5.fc3 and 1.0.1-5.fc4 are the same spec ;-). When I built
1.0.1-5.fc4 locally it fixed it, but when it built in the build system it didn't....

At any rate, I've pushed a new build (1.0.1-6) for FC4 and for rawhide that
fixes it in a more fool-proof way. Thanks!
