Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

on the TI omap4 images we install a favorite icon on the users desktop that is supposed to install the hardware specific addon software via software-center if a user clicks on it.

software should come from https://edge.launchpad.net/~tiomap-dev/+archive/release which currently carries a test package called titiler-memmgr-tests

during first boot of the image we put the following files in place


in a test i tried to specify the testpackage in an apt url like:

gnome-open "apt:titiler-memmgr-tests?channel=ti-omap4-ppa"

this opens software center with the following message:

"There isn't a software package called "Titiler-memmgr-tests" in your current software sources"

looking at the software-sources i also dont see an entry fro the ppa (neither enabled or disabled)

the channel files as well as the .desktop file used for testing are attached...

The support for .eula files was missing in USC, I fixed that in a simple manner now by displaying them where the description is. That means that currently only text is supported in the eula though.
