Bug Description

[Impact]
Bamf application matching metodology

[Test case]
1. install the new bamf version from proposed
2. exit and log back to the session
3. open gnome-control-center, go to the online account panel
-> the online account panel should be matched, not empathy.

[Regression potential]
No anymore matching possible with any application or wrong matching in some applications.
The bamf.index has been compared to the previous one to ensure we only filters what's needed now, so regressions are very unlikely.

When the UOA panel is selected in control center that the window matches
empathy. For example, if i select online accounts, the control center icon
disappears on the launcher and i get an extra pip for the empathy launcher.

Also

If the Online Accounts dialogue is accessed in System Settings or via the Gwibber Edit > Accounts menu , it's description is shown in the Panel as 'Empathy Internet Messenger'.

It may be that the description is 'Online Accounts' if it is first run from System Settings and the 'Empathy Internet Messenger' description is only fixed when it is run from Empathy > Accounts

Not a bamf issue: the problem is in the distro script that generates the file /usr/share/applications/bamf.index, when building it it does not take care of the .desktop file sections, so the empathy.desktop file that contains:

Exec=empathy

[Desktop Action Hidden]
Name=Open Hidden in Background
Exec=empathy -h
NotShowIn=Messaging Menu

[Desktop Action Prefs]
Name=Open Preferences
Exec=empathy -p
NotShowIn=Messaging Menu

[Desktop Action Accounts]
Name=Open Accounts
Exec=gnome-control-center credentials
NotShowIn=Messaging Menu

Would cause the script to generate a bamf.index like:

empathy.desktop empathy
empathy.desktop empathy -h
empathy.desktop empathy -p
empathy.desktop gnome-control-center credentials

And this last line confuses the bamf matching. So, to fix this the bamf.index generator script should avoid the exec strings defined into .desktop sections.

The uploaded diff in quantal-proposed is 29,000+ lines long, but bamf does not have a micro release exception. Can you include a comprehensive list of all the changes and a testing plan? Otherwise we need to extract only the documented bug fix here.

Hello Ken, or anyone else affected,

Accepted bamf into quantal-proposed. The package will build now and be available at http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bamf/0.3.4-0ubuntu1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please change the bug tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not, change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!
