Description Atri Bhattacharya 2010-04-12 20:33:23 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-GB; rv: Gecko/20100204 SUSE/3.5.8-0.1.1 Firefox/3.5.8

There are a great number of items in the "System" group in the Application-browser which are duplicated in the gnome-control-centre. Indeed, almost all items that appear in the control-centre also appear in the system group on the application browser. The request is to remove all such duplicated entries from the application-browser keeping them only in the control-centre. This will reduce redundancy between the two different slabs while also significantly improving load-up times of the application-browser since there will be significantly fewer items to load.

On a related note it might also be useful to have a "control-centre" button in the application-browser instead of all these duplicated items.

Reproducible: Always

Actually every item in the gnome-control-centre is duplicated in the application-browser either in the "System" group or in the "Utilities" group. All these elements must be black-listed from the application-browser. I am not sure how this can be done by default by I do is manually using the main-menu configurator alacarte.

Yes, you are absolutely right.
I´d prefer remove all of items in "System" group and have only Control Center. It would be well-arranged. Or possibility to edit which items user wants in "System" group.
As an exmaple let´s try to take a look Ubuntu's Menu Bar. It´s pretty clean. And it gives possibility to change which one items user can set in "System" group.
Whether Preferences, Administration or Control Center. I like this idea. 
And openSUSE could add also YaST in "System" group.
Honestly, Menu Bar and Traditional Gnome Main Menu are big mess in openSUSE.

Can this be done for Milestone 7 [May 21]. Please let me know if there is something I can do to help with this. Much needed organisation for the application-browser with the potential to reduce its load-up times too.

Still no progress here in Milestone7 :-(
Comment 6 Vincent Untz 2010-11-30 09:42:52 UTC
Unfixable for 11.3, and fixed in Factory a while ago :-)
