Re: Bug#500119: [Pkg-utopia-maintainers] Bug#500119: Better way to avoid both knetworkmanager and nm-applet are started in parallel
Thank you all for handling this bug report.
I have related knowledge and can confirm the correctness of this fix.
Please refer to the spec:
A list of strings identifying the environments that should display/not
display a given desktop entry. Only one of these keys, either
OnlyShowIn or NotShowIn, may appear in a group (for possible values
see the Desktop Menu Specification).
So, apparently, this fix MUST work. Otherwise, it's definitely a
serious KDE4 bug.
