Bug Description

Binary package hint: wine

The GNOME integration for Wine's "Start menu" listings (Applications-->Wine-->Programs) is case sensitive, when in fact it shouldn't be.

For example, following the installation of an 'addon' package to another application that I had already installed, I now have both

'Trnsys 16'
and 'TRNSYS 16'

listed in my Applications-->Wine-->Programs menu, when I am fairly sure that only one of these should be present.

Cheers
JP

That would be winemenubuilder...

Not necessarily. Menus are built one at a time, as created by the application. If there's 2 menus then it's likely winemenubuilder got called twice with different cases, and the case insensitivity problem is elsewhere.

Is there a demo with the problem? If not, please uninstall, and then attach installation logs with WINEDEBUG="+menubuilder".

Does this issue occur in newest WINE?
