Bug Description

fresh install of Lubuntu Precise daily-live 20120221
12" 1.5GHz PowerBook G4 PPC
lxpanel 0.5.8+git20120212-0ubuntu1
lubuntu-default-settings 0.24

in Application Launch Bar where there should be an icon for pcmanfm and chromium there is only a "missing location" icon for the latter. clicking on it doesn't result on a browser being loaded so the problem is not the icon itself.

i see 3 potential panel profiles in /usr/share/lxpanel/profile and they all reference different browsers:

1. default
uses lxde-x-www-browser.desktop which doesn't exist

2. Lubuntu
uses chromium-browser.desktop which doesn't exist because there is no PPC version

3. two_panel
which is obviously not the default but uses the CORRECT firefox.desktop

the middle one seems to be the one in use in the default location of ~/.config/lxpanel/Lubuntu/panels/panel
indeed if chromium-browser.desktop is replaced here with firefox.desktop and lxpanelctl restart is performed, we have a functional firefox browser icon again.

as this is ppc specific, the installer should check the arch and change the value appropriately.
