Bug Description

gnome-bluetooth 3.2.0-0ubuntu2, Ubuntu 11.10

These menu items are miscapitalized:
* "Send files to device…" should be "Send Files to Device…"
* "Browse files on device…" should be "Browse Files on Device…" (or "Show Files on Device…")
* "Set up new device…" should be "Set Up New Device…"

In addition, "Preferences" opens a System Settings panel for changing settings, so it should be "Bluetooth Settings…".

Looks like someone already replaced "Preferences" with "Bluetooth Settings...", but revision 62 of ~charlesk/gnome-bluetooth/indicators takes care of the capitalization issues.

Charles, could you please also replace the three single dots '...' by the unicode symbol U+2026 (…).

I think (actually, I hope) we do that in all menus.

Lars, thanks. Fixed r63

Thanks for your work, does it make sense to use the "com.canonical.indicator.bluetooth" namespace where the code is from gnome-bluetooth (though the key is ubuntu specific and related to the indicator patch indeed)

Could you also maybe open an upstream bug about the '...' against '…', it seems like the sort of things that could go upstream and it still applies to the current git version applet code

Regarding the namespace, the question is: if not that schema, which one would be preferable? None of the preexisting ones seem right.

Right, looking at it again that seems ok, it's still suboptimal to patch gnome-bluetooth that way and ideally we would have a real indicator instead but I guess until that happens we will have to do with what we got
