Bug Description

The first entry in the list of software in the category "Themes and Tweaks" is the "Emeerald Theme Manager". Clicking on more info takes me to a page saying "Not found. There isn't a software package called emerald....".

Not being able to select and copy text from the software centre window made reporting this issue more painful than it could have been. :-)

Reassigned to the correct package, the issue being that app-install-data-ubuntu is not in sync with the archive. Emerald has been removed from the oneiric archive, but the app-install-data-ubuntu still contains it's desktop file. This is not the case for Precise however, as the emerald desktop file is no longer included.

The fix for this would be to remove the emerald desktop file from the app-install-data package (oneiric version).
