Bug#625519: gnome-shell: blacklist too aggressive

Hi Marc,

the issue is not about gnome-shell *not* looking into
/usr/share/applications/kde, but rather gnome-menus blacklisting several
KDE programs. See /etc/gnome/menus.blacklist.
kate is listed there as kde4/kate.desktop, that's why it magically
showed up, as soon as you move the desktop file around.

While hiding a lot of those very KDE specific programs does make sense,
the blacklist is a bit too aggressive for my taste.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
