Hmmm... submenus ... ok... if you hate them ;).
But I personally do not like the approach that the user "will find it
himself", especially if it is "no big deal" to provide him this information.
Well, what about a (more or less) simple "About" menu and (on selection
upcoming) window which provides links or even buttons to the README
and/or LICENSE text files (if available).
Or maybe even having tabs in the "About" window for this kind of
And another thing I was thinking about:
This might be a good place to provide the desklet's log file (whenever
gDesklets will provide seperate logfiles for each display). Maybe even
with a "Copy to Clibboard" feature ;).
Just in case there is a bug or a question.
I know... just dreaming ;).
