Patch against bluetooth-properties.desktop.diff (355 bytes, patch)

Description Milan Bouchet-Valat 2008-02-07 15:39:40 UTC
The bluetooth-properties.desktop file reads:
Name=Bluetooth Preferences

Since this item is displayed in the Preferences menu, the term "Preferences" is redundant and disturbing for the user: this is unneeded information that bloats the menu.

Attached is a simple patch to fix that.

BTW, the Description property is very poor too, it adds no information to the Name:
Comment=Configure Bluetooth settings

It could be nice to improve it, for example telling
Comment=Configure Bluetooth wireless transmission protocol
or something like that.

Thanks for your work, it would be nice if all tools in Preferences corrected their  behavior (few applications haven't done so)
