Bug Description

M10 rc-proposed with Libertine/XApps scope installed.
In the XApps scope there's 'Help' app. When I click on it, I get new page which shows the app icon, app name, text: 'Get help with Unity' and button 'Open'. When I click the button, the app starts but it displays text: 'Document not found' and some more.
Screenshot attached.

The 'Help' icon is supposed to be hidden out by default. Did you happen to remove 'Help' from the 'Excluded Apps' list under Settings for the scope?

Hmmm, I don't think so. All I did with Settings was trying to copy what's inside. I have this:
Panel Manager;OpenJDK Java 7 Policy Tool;OpenJDK Java 8 Policy Tool;

Ok, I think it got accidentally removed since you added a new entry. That settings thing is pretty horrible and will arbitrarily remove the last entry in the list when adding a new entry.

It will be gone in the next release.

I'm going to mark this Won't Fix, but rest assured, it will be fixed indirectly:)

I'm confused now, as I have not added any new entries. At least not knowingly. Thanks for the upcoming fix though :)

Oh, you're right! It's not in the list. Sorry about my assumption. We will add 'Help' to be hidden by default.

Re-opening this to fix it properly.

Hrrmm, long morning already:)

So, the new way of filtering/hiding apps already has the change to hide 'Help' in the scope.

Will mark this Fix Committed for the devel branch and the next release into the Store will have this fix.

Thanks for all of your feedback on the Libertine Scope. It is much appreciated!

  [ Chris Townsend ]
  * Use wildcard matching for allowing reading any puritine click package paths
    that have the name "puritine" anywhere in the Click package name. (LP: #1590453)

  [ Kyle Nitzsche ]
  * Replace the scope settings approach to suppress display of apps with a scope
    filter based approach. This provides a blacklist file for permanent suppression
    and filters for user suppression.
  * Provide a "Hidden X Apps" department for a place to store the apps hidden in
    the main scope view, so they can be unhidden later if desired.
  * Hide 'Help' by default for all containers. (LP: #1591511)
  * Removed Settings. (LP: #1591494)

  [ Larry Price ]
  * Refactor Query class for consistent style and extract some functionality to
    helper classes.
  * Show a message when no apps are available due to filters or no apps installed.
