Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

software-center trunk 1042, Ubuntu Maverick

0. Switch to the Ambiance Maverick-beta theme, if not using it already.
1. Launch Ubuntu Software Center.
2. Look for the most prominent item in the window.

What you see: The "Get Software" item is bright orange.

It's a worthy goal to try and emphasize the current location. But it backfires with what will be the default theme in Ubuntu 10.10: Ambiance now makes a strong distinction between default and non-default buttons, and a single-segment pathbutton ends up looking exactly like a default button.

As bug 551181 points out, clicking the last element in the pathbutton always does nothing. Until we figure out a nice way of showing that without making it look unimportant, I think the best thing to do is to color it exactly the same as the other segments.
