Can you reproduce this creating a menu entry from
scratch? If so, give
comprehensive steps. If not, attach one of the HumbleBundle-created .desktop
files and we can test it (eg symlinking /usr/bin/some-game to /bin/true).
Yes it's reproducible.
1. Right-click KMenu
2. Select Edit applications
3. Pick a menu entry point. I selected Games > Arcade
4. Click New item
5. Name item Testing
6. Fill in the Command field with a known application... for example kwrite
7. Do not give it the optional description
When you check the KMenu at this point the object is visible in the
menu, but the name is not visible. Hover with a mouse and the name
shows up in the Description area.
If I go back into the menu editor and give the new object a
description, then the name shows up in the right place, and the new
description shows on mouse hover.
Interestingly, the Humble Bundle game items all have a Comment. If I
add a new Description, leaving the comment, then the problem persists.
If i move the Comment to the Description, then everything is back to
So, it seems that a menu object with a Name but no Description or
Comment displays incorrectly. A menu item with a Name, Description
and Comment displays incorrectly.
Ummmm.. does that make sense?
