Add keywords #31

wants to merge 4 commits into


None yet
4 participants

Adds searchable keywords to geany's .desktop file, used by Unity and Gnome-Shell.


elextr commented Sep 16, 2012

The delay here seems to be none of the Geany devs use these desktops to test this.

Gnome is requesting that Keywords be added to .desktop files, so can this patch be accepted now?

Why this line?


mhall119 Nov 16, 2012

Not needed anymore, since it's Xdg spec and Gnome-Shell uses it, I'll take it out


b4n commented Nov 17, 2012

Also, the spec doesn't tell about it, but GNOME seems to use lowercase keywords, not sure it that matters.

Anyway, you should re-do/squash the commits to have one single commit adding the Keywords line rather than 4 adding and removing various stuff.

@mhall119 what's also the status of this, does it conflict with Pull Request 30?

If it's just a matter of merging it into one commit, I can do that, but I have no clue about this stuff. I'm using Xfce 4.8 so not sure I can really test it.


codebrainz commented Aug 15, 2013

Closing due to no response in 7 months and not being a huge killer feature.

@mhall119 Feel free to re-open or create a new cleaned up PR if you would like.
