Description Stephan Sokolow 2005-11-09 21:13:27 UTC
DosBox lacks a .desktop file and, as such, lacks a menu item in many (probably
all) desktop environments. I have attached one which I created. As far as I can
tell, it complies with the newest version (0.9.4) of the standard.

The submitted file references the suggested icon which I am also attaching.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  
No entry appears in the menus after emerging.

Expected Results:  
An entry should appear.

This one doesn't even make any sense.  Dosbox is most useful when you point it
at an application, not just starting it without arguments.
Comment 4 Stephan Sokolow 2005-11-10 00:44:27 UTC
I beg to differ. It works very well if you set a bunch of defaults in
~/.dosboxrc and pull one of those old batchfile-based menu systems out of the
mess of 3.5" diskettes in the closet.
