Bug Description

Currently the Ubuntu UI Toolkit Gallery app does not load on the desktop, making it very difficult for app developers to launch it. The only way of starting it is to look for its desktop file in the system (/usr/lib/ubuntu-ui-toolkit/examples/ubuntu-ui-toolkit-gallery/ubuntu-ui-toolkit-gallery.qml), edit it and remove the two following keys:

Icon=Not important
Path=Not important

These were added as part of a workaround for bug 1227359, but done in a way that creates invalid keys in the .desktop file to be run on the desktop.

I'd suggest setting the keys to proper values:

- Set Icon to point to either an Ubuntu icon or at the same icon that the IDE uses (that'd kill two birds in one stone and take care of bug 1176918)
- Set Path to point to the appropriate path
