[Bug 915692] zypper can't remove applications "Xfce power manager" and "ca.desrt.dconf-editor"

--- Comment #5 from Michael Andres <ma@xxxxxxxx> ---
@Dominique: Could you please have a look at dconf/dconf-editor packages.

The /usr/share/appdata/ca.desrt.dconf-editor.appdata.xml seems to be shipped
with dconf, but it most probably belongs to dconf-editor as well.

If the appdata.xml provides no <name>, libsolv tries to look into the .desktop
file, so preferably both are in the same package. If they were (or if Jean had
installed dconf-editor as well), dconf-editor.appdata.xml would have used the
correct 'dconf Editor' and removal of application:'dconf Editor' should have

# zypper rm -u -t application 'dconf Editor'
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

The following application is going to be REMOVED:
"dconf Editor"

The following 4 packages are going to be REMOVED:
dconf dconf-editor gsettings-backend-dconf libdconf1

4 packages to remove.

'xfce4-power-manager' is a different story. A script extracting the application
data from the package produces invalid xml and the data are rejected. That's
why the appdata.xml.gz has no entry for xfce4-power-manager'. mls@ is about to
fix this in the buildservice.)
