Bug Description

Binary package hint: tuxmath

Tuxmath appears in the applications menu under 'Games' instead of 'Education'.

This is because Categories=Game;KidsGame; in tuxmath.desktop. I believe a more appropriate categorization would be Categories=Education; like tuxtyping and tuxpaint have. It's unfortunate that these three programs are not listed together in the menus.

Frank, what version of Ubuntu are you running?

And you didn't quite follow the procedure to make your debdiff, as decribed at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToFix .

I think the last procedure would be something like debdiff tuxmath_1.7.2-1.dsc tuxmath_1.7.2-1ubuntu1.dsc > tuxmath_1.7.2-1ubuntu1.debdiff

Sorry I am a bit new to this. I have now attached the correct debdiff file.

Frank, thanks. That patch is a lot more readable. I believe Debian will be updating the categories but they are waiting for the next TuxMath version to be released instead of making a minor change just for this. I don't believe we'll want to do a Stable Release Update for Karmic just for this either. But I think there is a good chance this will be fixed before Lucid is released.
