Description louisgtwo 2002-12-26 23:23:05 UTC
the .desktop file has the wrong categories so it shows up under Extras/Other in
the gnome menu.

Comment 1 louisgtwo 2002-12-30 20:11:29 UTC
redhat-install-packages.desktop has no catagories.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-31 07:45:26 UTC
Havoc, Than --

This desktop file exists because (from what I understand -- I didn't add it)
it's needed so that konqueror can launch redhat-install-packages when you select
packages and say to install them.  It's not ever an app that's meant to be
called without any packages as arguments.  So what should I do here?

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2003-01-03 11:38:43 UTC
you have to add NoDisplay=true into redhat-config-packages.desktop.
KDE menu will not display it.

Comment 4 Ngo Than 2003-01-03 13:03:49 UTC
It's fixed in CVS. Jeremy, please checkout from CVS ;-)

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-03 15:44:51 UTC
Okay, will be fixed in 1.1.4-1.  Thanks Than.

Comment 6 louisgtwo 2003-01-04 03:05:43 UTC
Seems not to work in gnome though.

Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-04 03:29:16 UTC
Yeah gnome doesn't do NoDisplay because it only uses .desktop files for menus.

Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2005-04-22 04:16:52 UTC
The new menu-spec implementation in gnome-menus supports NoDisplay
