[sip-comm-dev] SIP-Communicator icon appearing in 'Internet' and 'Sound & Video'


#1

Hi,

Just installed SC on a fresh installation of Ubuntu 9.04 and found out that
SC is available in both 'Internet' and 'Sound & Video' categories. Should it
behave like that?

Damian supposed that it is caused by a setting in
resources/install/debian/sip-communicator.desktop -
Categories=AudioVideo;Network;InstantMessaging;Chat;IRCClient;Telephony;VideoConference;Java;
(if I understood 'em correctly).

Adioz,

Hey Vladimir,

I am a bit confused as to why this is a problem. Does it contradict a
debian convention or is it that you simply find it confusing?

Cheers,
Emil

Yep, it puzzled me that it's in two different categories, not that it's
wrong or something - I just don't have an idea how it should be, so that's
why I ask :slight_smile: If it is meant to be this way, don't even bother to answer me,
thread won't be continued :wink:

Have a good night!

Hi guys,

Just throwing in my opinion, not trying to argue what's right or wrong.

I'm personally not bothered by the fact that a program appears in two categories. The default main client Evolution of Ubuntu GNOME appears in two categories and it's obviously something that Ubuntu doesn't currently consider wrong.

Anyway, I personally expect to see SIP Communicator in the Internet category because it describes the main category of our application. Ekiga and Pidgin are there so I personally have no doubts about it. 'Sound & Video' on my Ubuntu GNOME contains programs such as audio and video players and recorders so my expectation isn't to see SIP Communicator there.

Eventually, I'm on the side that unless our appearance in two categories isn't against a certain popular convention such as Debian's, GNOME's, etc. and there are people among us who expect to see SIP Communicator in 'Sound & Video', it's not much of a problem.

Regards,
Lubomir
