[PATCH] Startup desktop file giving same name and descritpion as xscreensaver


Description Guido Falsi 2019-09-25 18:10:56 CEST
Created attachment 9055 
Change Name of desktop entry

As the subject states, the desktop file installed in xdg for session startup has the same text as the one provided by xfce4-settings for xscreensaver. This causes the problem that in the UI to configure startup programs two identical lines appear when both are installed.

This came up on FreeBSD after the update to XFCE 4.14 in which I made xscreensaver the default, but hoping users could choose anyway.

I'm attaching a simple patch changing the description, but I understand this would need to be translated.

I'm open to suggestions anyway on ways to fix this.

BTW I also noticed that when both are installed they are both enabled by default. Is there a mechanism to make only one of them enabled by default?
