YaST - keyword search for modules

Feature state



System Preferences in Mac OS X (YaST equivalent from Apple :)) has a group of keywords associated with each module. It would be nice if YaST had the same.


  • module: Hardware -> Graphics Card and Monitor
  • keywords: graphics, monitor, screen, resolution, ...

When user wants to change the resolution, he/she starts YaST, type "resolution" in search box and "Graphics Card and Monitor" module will show up. This is not possible now, because YaST only searches in descriptions of modules.

Sounds like useful.

This is done in yast2-control-center-qt. It now looks for X-SuSE-YaST-Keywords entry in module .desktop files (which is supposed to be comma-separated list of keywords) and matches the search phrase against those, along with module name

Some things that still need to be done:

  • YaST modules have to be extended to contain X-SuSE-YaST-Keywords in their .desktop files - currently none does. Without those, the support in CC is useless. E-mail on this already sent to yast-devel
  • Don't know if we want to have the list of keywords localized. If we do, the scripts collecting localizable entries from .desktop files have to be extended to recognize X-SuSE-YaST-Keywords, so that those make it to generated .pot files
