#2435 closed enhancement (wontfix)

replace activity.info with a .desktop file

Reported by: sascha_silbe Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Major Keywords:
Cc: sridhar Distribution/OS:
Bug Status: New

Description

activity.info is already based on the XDG desktop entry format. By using the same keys (where possible) and using the prefix X-Sugar for our custom keys we make it easier to integrate Sugar with Gnome (in both directions).

It would also simplify the code as we can rely on existing libraries to handle these files (like we already do for MIME types) instead of implementing our own "bundle registry".

Integration with "plain" X applications hasn't really improved in the last few years. We are moving towards a web based toolkit. I don't think this is worth the effort at this point. Still patches welcome etc.
