Bug Description

k3b does not show in Audio and Video categories in GNOME Software. This is because it is in the "AudioVideo" category which is not shown in GNOME Software. By comparison, Brasero is in the "AudioVideo;Audio;Video" categories and does show.

The fastest fix is to update src/k3b.desktop and change:




I have filed a bug upstream to see what they think.

Since "AudioVideo" is a standardized main category, I think this is a bug in GNOME Software not properly recognizing it...

Technically, there is nothing wrong with the k3b .desktop file.

summary: - k3b does not show in Audio and Video categories
+ k3b does not show in Audio and Video categories @ GNOME

Yeah, it's technically correct. However, it seems useful to be able to find K3b when looking under Audio or Video.

+ Does not show AudioVideo category

I looked at filing a K3b bug but upstream seems dead.

Yeah, but I think this is a bug: "it is in the "AudioVideo" category which is not shown in GNOME Software" -> GNOME software should just treat the "AudioVideo" category as "Audio" and "Video", since it's an XDG main category (and likely to be found in many other files, not just k3b).


got a mostly neutral example:

The landing Menu Categorie in Kubuntu is called Multimedia, where --stuff-- Apps from Audio, Video and AudioVideo (neither fish nor flesh - but covering both) appear. Just Multimedia.

Please dont possibly change headlines - I run through lists regularely in order to help KDE-packagers in Kubuntu to keep their back off while preparing beta-2. Headlines should be most meaningful. Thanks.

Couldn't find anything related.

Changed in debian:
status: Unknown → Confirmed
Changed in gnome-software:
status: Confirmed → In Progress
no longer affects: debian

Ubuntu 16.04 with Software 3.20.1~git20160331.78d1aab-0ubuntu2
Now I can see K3b in Audio and Video categories. So I think you can mark this bug as "Fix released" for "gnome-software (Ubuntu)"

This is resolved in appstream-glib (and therefore in GNOME Software) now.
