Bug Description

Binary package hint: branding-ubuntu

1) Got this error message when upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. It asked me to report it so I did. Not sure what to write here. Let me know what kind of information is needed.

2) It said ubuntu-branding-0.4.0 or something like that, so it's probably version 0.4.0.

3) Upgrade successful

4) Upgrade successful with this exception, which probably (luckily) does not matter.

Did you already have a /usr/share/gnome-games-common/cards/gnomangelo_bitmap.svg.unbranded file? You may have gotten it by following an instructional script to install the branded cards experimentally long ago, I saw something like that on the forums.

Please post the output of: ls /usr/share/gnome-games-common/cards/

Thank you

It seems I already had a gnomeangelo_bitmap.svg, but there is no .unbranded in the name. I didn't bother messing with the upgrade anymore so I reinstalled (easy peasy when my /home is on another partition). I do have a full backup from right before starting the upgrade though. Here is the output of `ls -l usr/share/gnome-games-common/cards/`

I have no idea why I would have that file if it's not supposed to be there. This is my work computer so I am at least sure I didn't install any games other that the ones that are included by default in the install.
