Description Daniele Viganò 2014-11-22 09:36:32 UTC
Description of problem:
In Fedora 21, with qgis-2.6.0-2.fc21 the QGIS Desktop and QGIS Browser are missing.

In /usr/share/applications/[qgis,qbrowser].desktop the icon is set as:


But the icons, located in /usr/share/icons are called 'qgis-icon':
[root@gemlatitude5450 icons]# find /usr/share/icons -name "qgis*"


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

How reproducible:
Install QGIS:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install qgis

Actual results:
Broken icon in application view

Expected results:
The "Q" icon should appear for QGIS related applications

Additional info:
Changing "Icon=qgis" to "Icon=qgis-icon" in the .desktop files fixes the issue.

Comment 1 Volker Fröhlich 2014-11-22 11:52:32 UTC
Right, thank you for noticing. I will also address the issue that qbrowser and qgis have the same description.

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2015-03-12 14:07:05 UTC
Any update with this? Just wanted to report it as well.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-11-04 13:13:04 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '21'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 21 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2015-12-02 05:09:54 UTC
Fedora 21 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-12-01. Fedora 21 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
