        Description

        I'm running Metropolis build12.

        There are actually 2 issues to this bug.

        Bug #1
        ======
        Currently the .desktop file for Java Control Panel is installed to the wrong location.


        According to the Metropolis UI spec the following menu option should exist:

        Launch->Preferences->Desktop Preferences->Java

        which should launch the Java Control Panel. But because the .desktop file (sun_java.desktop) is installed to "/usr/java/jre/plugin/desktop" gnome-vfs does not pick this file up and no menu entry is created in gnome-panel.

        The sun_java.desktop file should be installed to "/<%install_prefix>/share/control-center-2.0/capplets".

        Bug #2
        ======
        The "Exec" and the "Icon" paths for the sun_java.desktop file will need to be changed - currently they are set to:

        Exec: INSTALL_DIR/JRE_NAME_VERSION/bin/ControlPanel
        Icon: INSTALL_DIR/JRE_NAME_VERSION/plugin/desktop/sun_java.png

        They should be set to (for Metropolis/Solaris)

        Exec: ControlPanel
        Icon: sun_java.png

        Note: currently the %install_prefix is /opt/jds but this is to change to /usr going forward from Metropolis_13
