Just uploaded -2 build to remedy duplicate menu entries.

Comment 2 Lars G 2006-10-05 20:30:37 UTC
new beryl-settings installs .desktop menu entries twice


Comment 3 Jarod Wilson 2006-10-05 20:44:49 UTC
Ugh. Really fixed this time. Only partially implemented the fix last go around.

$ rpm -qpl /build/RPMS/x86_64/beryl-settings-0.1.0-3.fc6.x86_64.rpm |grep desktop

Comment 4 Jarod Wilson 2006-10-26 15:40:39 UTC
Just pushed out a 0.1.1-1 build:

Comment 5 Chitlesh GOORAH 2006-11-04 14:52:35 UTC
chitlesh[0]$rpm -qf /usr/bin/beryl-settings

chitlesh[0]$cat /usr/share/applications/fedora-beryl-settings.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Beryl Settings Manager
Comment=Configure beryl

chitlesh[0]$ls /usr/share/pixmaps/beryl-settings.png
ls: /usr/share/pixmaps/beryl-settings.png: No such file or directory

Hence no icon on kmenu !

Comment 6 Jarod Wilson 2006-11-06 15:01:05 UTC
Hrm, I somehow never noticed that... The beryl-settings source tree has nothing
but svg graphics files, looks like s/png/svg/ in the .desktop file should fix
that. Okay, -3 spec and srpm pushed.

Comment 7 Jarod Wilson 2006-11-14 19:05:20 UTC
Latest build uses upstream tarballs, since they're finally creating them (well,
for at least some bits...):
