Gnome-main-menu improvements

Feature state

Rejected Information


For openSUSE 11.2, it would be very useful if gnome-main-menu could be improved feature-wise and also performance-wise.

Several common features that need to be implemented are as follows:

  1. Right click menu to clear recent documents, recent places, etc in the main-menu slab. Important for privacy purposes.
  2. Relabelling of YAST to Administrator settings in the main menu slab.
  3. Adding frequently used shortcuts to the gnome-control-centre slab.
    At the moment the commonly used tasks in the gnome-control-centre only has a shortcut to 'set preferred applications'. Other commonly used shortcuts like user-account prefs, etc might be very useful.

Performance-wise the main-menu is a lot fasterĀ  and responsive today than in 10.3, except during the first startup of the application-browser slab after a restart or log-in. This takes a few seconds, and this time taken increases with increasing number of applications (tested on 11.1).

There is a patch that implements the right click to clear recent documents/apps in gnome-main-menu thanks to David Liang. This is detailed in the following bugzilla report:


Will it be possible to include this in a nearby 11.2 milestone release?

P.S.: The above bugzilla is not accessible without suitable authorisation.

Vincent, is this something the GNOME team likes to take - or should we reject this?

For 1: as pointed out, there's a patch. Magnus or Scott should take a look.

For 2: this is the GenericName/Name mess. Not sure what we can do here.

For 3: it's more or less planned, we just need help from people :-)

This is still missing from milestone 6. With respect to this feature, things do not look bright at all. Please let me know if I, as a common user, can do something to help here.
