Added AppCenter here in case there is some sort of coordination needed. Feel free to mark as invalid on that project if I am wrong.

Adding new menu item for each application is not very hard. What about interaction with AppCenter? If I press "Uninstall" on "convert" it must find package name "imagemagick" (maybe via apt?), than somehow pass this name to AppCenter, which must ask user a confirmation and then delete the package. Must I implement command-line option for AppCenter? The solution "gksudo apt-get remove ..." is not acceptable, is not it?

My guess is that we shouldn't depend on AppCenter here and just use packagekit directly. But I'll bring this to Corentin's attention for his opinion

From Slack:

Corentin: Hmm it's probably better to use AppCenter because you can search the package with AppStream
