Description Milan Bouchet-Valat 2007-10-28 17:48:05 UTC
[Reported in Launchpad's Ubuntu bug 158104 ]

Currently, GNOME Keyring Manager's icon is in System -> Administration. This is not justified because:
1) this tool doesn't deal with any system-wide information, it's working on a per-user basis
2) it doesn't need to have administrator rights

This is contributing to the confusion around Administration/Preferences menus.
So please update the .desktop file for it to put its icon under System -> Preferences, just like for example Seahorse already does.

Patch against /usr/share/applications/gnome-keyring-manager.desktop

This should completely correct the bug.

Comment 3 Milan Bouchet-Valat 2008-02-07 14:52:28 UTC
While we are at it, the name of gnome-keyring-manager is not good because it appears in a config menu. Therefore, "Manager" is redundant: it should not be
Name=Keyring Manager
Name=Password Keyrings (since we gain some space).

I'm attaching an updated patch to solve these two issues.
Could somebody at last look at this bug, simple but nice since most of wrong tools have corrected this?

gnome-keyring-manager has been deprecated and superseded by Seahorse more than one year ago.
There has not been any active code development for more than a year.

This bug will probably soon be closed as WONTFIX or OBSOLETE.

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug.
However, gnome-keyring-manager won't be developed anymore and it has
been superseded by Seahorse.
