Details

Description:

Package ripperX omits upstream .desktop and icon files. So the app doesn't appear on automatic menus.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
2.7.3-2
* config and/or log files etc.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ripperx/files/ripperx/2.7.3/


Steps to reproduce:

Download tarball from SourceForge and unpack. Note files ripperX.desktop and ripperX.xpm which are omitted from the Arch package file list.

Myself, I added some lines to help automenus, use them as you please:

My desktop-fu is lukewarm so here's a chaser.

For QA I ran the stock Arch PKGBUILD through gendesk to make a .desktop file, then tweaked and validated through desktop-file-validate.

Please use proper capitalization. The app name is officially 'ripperX' with capital X and otherwise lower case. The binary is already correctly named.

My endless MIME entries may be invalid / overkill but I lack time to play. Somehow they fell out of copy / paste from other apps years ago.

What I can say is that this .desktop works on two machines with e.g. openbox-menu automation and fbpanel automation. It may still need a little work, I don't know.

A set of icons in various sizes and formats is attached.

A certain 'bardo' at Arch lists ripperX as missing desktop files...a likely assignee? Thanks.

UPDATE 2013 Jan 10

I don't know any way to post a new comment on a closed task so here
is the update.

The new desktop file lacks a critical entry "Categories," which
determines where it appears in automatic menus. Right now it
shows in a grab-bag called "Other" whereas Brasero and all the
A/V apps fall under "Sound & Video."

My suggested edit borrowed from another app,

Categories=GTK;GNOME;AudioVideo;DiscBurning;
