Option “-e” is deprecated and might be removed in a later version of gnome-terminal.
Use “-- ” to terminate the options and put the command line to execute after it. Warning: DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID not set and no fallback available.

I had byobu pinned to the launcher in Zesty.
Directly after having upgraded to Artful, byoby had been removed from the launcher (similar to bug #1628975).
When launched, byobu would show the "unknown icon" and could not be pinned to the launcher ("Add to Favorites" was greyed).

Now, byobu use the terminal icon and can be pinned to the launcher. However, it will then start as a normal terminal, without byobu.

  * usr/lib/byobu/include/constants, usr/share/byobu/keybindings/f-
    keys.screen, usr/share/byobu/keybindings/f-keys.tmux:
    - create a $BYOBU_EDITOR variable, using "sensible-editor" if found
      (it will be on Debian/Ubuntu systems), or $EDITOR if not, and falling
      back to "vim" in the case where none are found
    - use $BYOBU_EDITOR with Shift-F7 to open the printscreen buffer in
      a new window; this fixes a bug on some distros where $EDITOR might
      be undefined
  * usr/lib/byobu/session:
    - don't count sessions that start with _
    - BUG: #892489
  * usr/lib/byobu/include/shutil, usr/lib/byobu/logo:
    - add a logo for gLinux

    - give some hints for GNOME Shell to correctly match byobu desktop file
      (LP: #1718482); partial fix, not entirely working yet
