An improved .desktop file for GnuCash, following the specification (http://www.freedesktop.org/Standards/desktop-entry-spec). Works for me..

I haven't tried, because you don't get many opportunities to intltoolize many GTK1 apps these days, but if there aren't any problems with switching gnucash to intltool, this desktop file could be easily translated using the po file for the rest of the app messages.

Ie, having a desktop file is good, but it will outstand in a Ubuntu system if it's the only menu item in English. Intltool would help.

The desktop file supports localization. See [1] for more information on
how the desktop file can be translated. The use of intltool is not
required.

It's not required, but it's quite desirable. Allowing multiple people to translate in a single file is the perfect recipy for encoding breakage, translation omission and other kinds of badness that has been experienced with desktop and debconf templates in the past.

Doing a single translation in a single file is the way to go, and intltool helps with this.

This bug is for the inclusion of a desktop file in gnucash. The method for translation of the desktop file is a seperate issue. I'd recommend opening a new bug for that or discussing the issue on the ubuntu-devel mailing list.

GnuCash version 2.0.1 is what we have in Edgy, and icon location is

  /usr/share/pixmaps/gnucash-icon.png

instead of

  /usr/share/pixmaps/gnucash/gnucash-icon.png

Attached is a new desktop file that works correctly in Edgy.

Never mind. Desktop file is already correct in Edgy.

Sorry.

I changed the Gnucash status to invalid has this bug doesn't seem to affect Gnucash itself but only the desktop file for ubuntu
