Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Ubuntu Software Center 2.1.18.1, Ubuntu Maverick

The "Get Software" > "System" category (my new favorite category) gives you the option to "Hide 28K+ technical items". Clicking to hide the items causes the full list to reload and "Hide 28K+ technical items" text is displayed again.

What should happen: If there are in fact any non-"technical" items, only they should be displayed in the list and the text should change to "Show 28K+ technical items". If, however, the "System" category contains only items that would be considered "technical" (as all evidence seems to indicate), then the option to hide them should not be displayed.

Hi Gary! I've 'fixed' this in my branch by not allowing the system category to have a show/hide bar. It's perhaps not the cleanest solution, but I think it's the way to go for maverick.

Hey kiwinote! Yep, I agree that should do the trick for maverick. Thanks!

Accepted software-center into maverick-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

---------------
software-center (3.0.5) maverick-proposed; urgency=low

  [ Andrea Cimitan ]
  * fix rendering with Ambiance theme (LP: #635208)

  [ Kiwinote ]
  * softwarecenter/app.py:
    - support launching apturls via alt+F2 in gnome (LP: #653889)
  * softwarecenter/db/update.py:
    - use 'X-GNOME-FullName' rather than 'Name', when available (LP: #651260)
      (test case: software-center cheese empathy evolution gwibber)
  * softwarecenter/view/appview.py:
    - unblock pkg if transaction is cancelled (LP: #652903)
      (test case: launch s-c with a list view, choose a pkg, click install,
       cancel auth, click install again, install should work as normal)
  * softwarecenter/view/availablepane.py:
    - don't show 'hide 1 technical item' in featured category (LP: #651236)
      (test case: browse to featured category (by clicking 'all'))
    - don't show 'hide technical items' in system category, as we don't
      have any apps to show (LP: #636854)
      (test case: browse to 'System' category)
  * softwarecenter/view/historypane.py:
    - correctly split pkgnames for pkg transactions dated before 28-ish July
      (LP: #651241)
      (test case: view transaction in history pane dated pre 28 July)
  * softwarecenter/view/viewswitcher.py:
    - emit 'transactions-changed' signal after connecting to the backend so
      that we display any pending transactions (LP: #652927)
      (see bug report for test case)

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * softwarecenter/backend/aptd.py:
    - use keyserver.ubuntu.com on port 80 by default to avoid problems
      on machines that filter the port 11371
  * softwarecenter/backend/restfulclient.py, softwarecenter/enums.py:
    - use plain http for the "what-is-available" API call
  * send user default language for "/apps" and "/subscription" requests
    now that the server is ready for this
