------- Comment #3 from andreas.hanke@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx 2006-10-09 20:48 MST -------
Yes, you're right. I totally missed the point of TryExec. ;-)

Upstream bug:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=334647

Upstream change:

http://cvs.gnome.org/viewcvs/gdm2/gui/gdmsetup.desktop.in?r1=1.12&r2=1.13

Both the bug report and the change are broken:

- With this change, TryExec succeeds and Exec fails. => Bad, because the user
sees a menu entry that doesn't work.

Either both of them should fail (=> The user doesn't see the menu entry) or
both of them should succeed (=> The user sees the menu entry and it works).

- The report talks about gksu which is Ubuntu specific. If we want to have
gdmsetup ask for the root password in openSUSE (I can't decide this), it needs
to be implemented differently.
