|0002223||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2015-04-13 08:22||2020-12-01 10:48|
|Target Version||2.0||Fixed in Version||2.0|
|Summary||0002223: Improve menu extension for Gnome Shell and do not use Gnome Flashback|
|Description||After having discussed with Josselin Mouette (Debian GNOME Maintainer), I concluded that it's not a good idea to rely on GNOME Flashback as many things will not work flawlessly since that session is mostly obsolete (compared to GNOME Classic or GNOME Shell).|
We should look into either:
- revamping the menu structure to use a single level of categories
- or improving the menu extension for GNOME Shell to support menus which are more than one level deep
I found the following upstream bug which is related to this problem: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=739480
In any case, we should configure the GNOME Shell session to include the "apps-menu" extension by default.
I uploaded kali-defaults 2.0~5 which enables the "apps-menu" extensions in GNOME Shell. I also dropped the change which made gnome-flashback the default session.
In parallel, we're having some discussion to see whether we really need to use a menu to make all those applications discoverable...
||Pushed gnome-shell-extensions_3.14.2-1kali1.dsc to kali-dev with Emilio's patch.|
