Excuse me, but Jeremy Bicha (jbicha) ask me
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-software/+bug/1711728)
to DON'T creat the bug in gnome-software, but in the specific package of
the application.

Christophe.

Please file individual bugs against those apps and add the tag
'appstream'. If you can find the upstream bug tracker for a specific
app, it would probably be useful to file a bug there too.

I'm closing this bug because it's not specific enough to be fixed.

Title:
  many applications are missing

Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid

Bug description:
  Many applications, even populars, are missing : conky, plank ...
  They are in the default repository.

  Probably because of missing appstream descriptions (?)

  People who don't use command lines are unable to access to thses
  applications.

The top one is the new GIMP snap, and the bottom one is the traditional GIMP .deb. The snap metadata is not translated yet, see [1] for some ideas on improving this. I'll assign this bug back to GNOME Software as that is the package that can try and reduce this confusion.

Apport done.

I understand the 2 lines : one snap and one deb.

But today it's absolutly confusing. It's important to insist about a clear presentation of what you install.

I'm nearly sure that 90% of ubunteros don't know what is a snap package.
