Description Fabio Correa 2007-01-19 11:01:49 UTC
The rss-glx ebuild specifies that the KDE .desktop files should be installed to 


but they should be installed to


just as the corresponding XScreenSaver's .desktop files.
Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-19 11:06:14 UTC
No, definitely not. Go check Bug 142197 and FDO specs.
Comment 2 Fabio Correa 2007-01-19 11:08:04 UTC
Created attachment 107425 [details]
Proposed 0.8.1-r3.ebuild

The proposed ebuild modifies the --with-kdessconfigdir flag at econf time. It also addresses bug #138935.
Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-19 11:08:44 UTC
As said, the location is correct.
Comment 4 Fabio Correa 2007-01-19 11:12:55 UTC
Well then but,

How to get KDE Control Center to detect the screen savers?
Why is that XScreenSaver does not install the .desktop files to the same location as #142197 specifies?
Comment 5 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-19 11:22:06 UTC
File a bug about kde-base/kcontrol if it doesn't detect them in a proper location; also xscreensaver is wrong and shouldn't install stuff there.
Comment 6 Fabio Correa 2007-01-19 11:27:08 UTC
My friend, it is still wrong. The screen savers appear in K menu's "Lost & Found" submenu. Believe me, there are other applications at /usr/share applications. If you like, let us address this discussion at bug #142197.
Comment 7 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-19 11:58:37 UTC
Already told you to file a *new* bug about kcontrol; don't clutter two different RESOLVED bugs with this. Thanks.

If the desktop entries are wrong (you can emerge dev-util/desktop-file-utils and check with desktop-file-validate) then file a new bug as well. The location is correct, nothing to be done here.
