Description Matthias Clasen 2005-09-23 03:06:40 UTC
We need to find a way to show only the preferences menu entry for the
screensaver that is running, either xscreensaver or gnome-screensaver,
not both.

Discussed briefly on irc, decided to add a
<MergeDir>/etc/xdg/menus/screensaver-properties-hack/</MergeDir> after the
<Include> in

gnome-screensaver would then install a .menu file in that dir containing
something like:

Should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide.

Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2005-09-27 07:09:53 UTC
Ray: I wouldn't use the preferences-merged dir - that already gets merged in at
a different point, so any .menu files will get merged in twice from there at
different points and could really confuse things.

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-09-27 15:28:52 UTC
okay this should be fixed tomorrow.

I ended up with the name preferences-post-merged.  In retrospect it's not the
best choice because we would run into a similiar problem if we ever introduced
to a file called, but we can change it later if we need to.
