Re: [XaraXtreme-dev] The desktop file

The desktop file "does not work" on my Gnome 2.14 setup.
What happens is that after being installed in the correct directory
the application does not appear in the graphics menu. Empirically I
deduced that this line: "TryExec=xaralx" needs to be removed for XaraLX
to appear in the graphics menu. Further testing showed that this is
because I do not have executable named ``xaralx'' on my system - the
executable is called XaraLX.

There seems to be a difference between the executable name in the
distributed binary archive (xaralx) and the one which gets build from
source (XaraLX). Is this correct? Any ideas for unifying these?

Yep, we should be consistent about binary names. My personal
preference would be to change the name of the built binary
to "xaralx", which would match what the current installers
use in the binary distribution - if only because capitals
are a little unusual (but not unheard of). That mean the
manpages etc. should all be in lowercase too.
