Feature changed by: Katarina Machalkova (kmachalkova) Feature #305845, revision 14 Title: YaST - keyword search for modules
- openSUSE-11.2: Candidate + openSUSE-11.2: Done Priority Requester: Important Projectmanager: Desirable
Requested by: Pavol Rusnak (prusnak)
Description: System Preferences in Mac OS X (YaST equivalent from Apple :)) has a group of keywords associated with each module. It would be nice if YaST had the same. Example: * module: Hardware -> Graphics Card and Monitor * keywords: graphics, monitor, screen, resolution, ... When user wants to change the resolution, he/she starts YaST, type "resolution" in search box and "Graphics Card and Monitor" module will show up. This is not possible now, because YaST only searches in descriptions of modules.
Discussion: #1: Michael Löffler (michl19) (2009-03-25 16:09:28) Sounds like useful.
#2: Katarina Machalkova (kmachalkova) (2009-07-30 16:01:56) This is done in yast2-control-center-qt. It now looks for X-SuSE-YaST- Keywords entry in module .desktop files (which is supposed to be comma- separated list of keywords) and matches the search phrase against those, along with module name
#3: Katarina Machalkova (kmachalkova) (2009-07-30 16:02:56) Some things that still need to be done: * YaST modules have to be extended to contain X-SuSE-YaST-Keywords in their .desktop files - currently none does. Without those, the support in CC is useless. E-mail on this already sent to yast-devel * Don't know if we want to have the list of keywords localized. If we do, the scripts collecting localizable entries from .desktop files have to be extended to recognize X-SuSE-YaST-Keywords, so that those make it to generated .pot files
