Re: [yast-devel] YaST Group Desktop files do not comply with FreeDesktop standards

Hi,

I'm currently cleaning my bugzilla up and I've found this bug:

Bug #470482 - YaST2 group .desktop files do not comply to FreeDesktop
standard [1] which results in too much noise in .xsession-errors
See https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=470482

According to comments, YaST Group Desktop files cause many
.xsession-errors because:

* They contain Type="Application"
* They (of course) do not contain any Exec=/some/binary

There are two proposed solutions:

* Add fake Exec=... line
* Move the desktop files out of /usr/share/applications

I don't like any of the proposed solutions much, so I'm asking *you*
whether we have another option or what do you think of the proposed ones?

Thanks in advance
Lukas

Well, I investigate issue and it is correct, that it should not contain this
type. From me the best solution is to remove line with type from all desktop
entries which define only group. And let type=application only for real modules.
