Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Ubuntu GNOME
gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

  gnome-control-center details panel shows the incorrect version. This merges the changes that were applied to unity-control-center to generate the version at build-time. Also replaces Ubuntu logo with a GNOME logo.

[Test Case]
View details pane in gnome-control-center and note incorrect version

[Regression Potential]
None, apart from the build time processing, all this does is switch out the logo file

In the Details section of the System Settings it shows 14.04 as 13.10. It also should be the Ubuntu GNOME icon and not Ubuntu's icon.

Hello Aaron, or anyone else affected,

Accepted gnome-control-center into trusty-proposed. The package will build now and be available at http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-control-center/1:3.6.3-0ubuntu56.1 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 add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and 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!

Hi, just for the record:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

will not update the logo and Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 LTS will still report "Ubuntu 13.10" instead of anything else.

The attached screenshot is for the 49th machine I converted to GNU/Linux (https://t.co/ZvquPNLdjY) and I just checked my machine and it has the same thing still. I have not changed anything; same settings as both fresh new installations and NO PPA is added.

Thank you!

I also noticed the fix after enabling the proposed. The gnome logo and the proper 14.04 LTS shows, fixes this bug for me finally.
