gm-notify doesn't show up as an application in the Ubuntu Software Centre

Bug #863869 reported by Greg A on 2011-10-01
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
app-install-data-ubuntu (Ubuntu)
gm-notify (Ubuntu)
software-center (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the Software Centre
2. Type "gmail" in the search bar

Result: gm-notify is not listed
Expected result: gm-notify is listed

If you click on "Show technical items" at the bottom of the window then the package shows up. It would be good if gm-notify could do something that means Software Centre recognises it as being an application.

gm-notify already has a desktop file, but the archive crawler probably did not index it, as it's not in the app-install-data-ubuntu package.
