Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OS INFO

Description: Ubuntu maverick (development branch)
Release: 10.10

Package INFO

software-center:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When I install a package (it was gufw in this occurence) in software-center by clicking "Install" button, I expected an installation processing, instead that it did a removal processing (gufw wasn't installed yet) then I get an error "no removal needed", finally I got to do it again to fix it : it finally installed the package.

  [ Gary Lasker ]
  * softwarecenter/view/purchasedialog.py:
    - make popup window a modal dialog so it works with
      metacity too (LP: #625398)
  * softwarecenter/view/softwarepane.py,
    softwarecenter/view/availablepane.py,
    softwarecenter/view/channelpane.py
    softwarecenter/view/installedpane.py,
    test/test_appview.py:
    - factor show/hide nonapps functionality up to the
      SoftwarePane base class, cleanup redundant code
    - enable show/hide nonapps in the "Provided by Ubuntu"
      subitem of "Installed Software" per updated spec
      (LP: #556375)
    - add test for show/hide nonapps
  * softwarecenter/backend/channel.py:
    - small fix in debug code

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * merged lp:~mpt/software-center/basic-css, improves the
    style of the purchase dialog (thanks!)
  * merged lp:~mmcg069/software-center/small-fixes that fixes
    minor drawing error with the paging dot drawing outside its
    allocated area (thanks!)
  * merged lp:~mpt/software-center/help-3.0 (thanks!)
  * softwarecenter/gwibber_helper.py:
    - to find out if gwibber has accounts setup, poke around in
      gconf instead of doing a dbus call. The dbus call will trigger
      a gwibber start on each s-c start

  [ Kiwinote ]
  * softwarecenter/view/appdetailsview_gtk.py:
    - set action_bar.pkg_state as well as local state
      (LP: #629230, LP: #632889)
      this means that the button will always take the right action
      (testcase: click 'install', cancel auth, click 'install', auth)
    - don't show warning in pkgstatusbar while transaction is in progress,
      instead show 'installing..', 'updating..', etc
      (test case: install any deb file and watch the pkgstatusbar)
  * softwarecenter/view/catview.py:
    - sort categories alphabetically (LP: #633238)
  * softwarecenter/view/catview_gtk.py:
    - skip the carousel transition if we are hovering above a poster, or if
      the poster is selected (ie hold down mouse, but don't release)

  [ Mohamed Amine IL Idrissi ]
  * Fix bug that allowed silent removal of conflicting packages
    (LP: #554319)
  * Fix missing icons in the remove alerts
