ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 147
No tooltips in SimpleWelcome
Last modified: 2012-09-10 12:00:42 MSD
Description of problem:
There are no tooltips in kde menu.
Comment[xx] field of .desktop file must be displayed in tooltip
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ROSA.2012.MARATHON.EE.i586 build 256
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open KDE menu
2. point on any application in menu
3. (compare with apps placed on pannel)
KDE menu? Do you mean SimpleWelcome when you're speaking 'KDE menu'?
In fact yes, I talk about SimpleWelcome.
Sorry for misdirection :)
The key problem is that some application names can't be localized (e.g. Kopete)
so we have lots of applications with English names in menu, and this names say nothing to ordinary user.
so we have two opportunities:
bad one: localize all app names (e.g. Kopete -> i18n("Instant messaging"))
good one: show localized tooltips for apps in menu in the same way as it done in apps placed on pannels
