Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2021-04-30 12:59:35 CEST
If you configure a minimal profile such as this:

> [/profiles/foobar]
> xdg_sessions=foobar

Then the details should come from /usr/share/xsessions/foobar.desktop.

This mostly works, except for the displayed name of the profile. Instead we show the folder name ("foobar") in this case.

Can be easily tested by removing the "name" settings from one of our predefined profiles.
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman cendio 2021-05-03 10:08:01 CEST
Fixed and works now. Tested on RHEL 8 with GNOME profiles.
Comment 3 William Sjöblom cendio 2021-05-03 15:24:44 CEST
Tested on Fedora 33 with GNOME profiles and a minimal custom `.desktop' file as seen below. Everything seems to work as intended!

> [Desktop Entry]
> Name=A really good name
> Exec=/usr/bin/gnome-session
