Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

When I search for an application but spell the name wrong, I get a message like the following:
“Search term not found, did you mean: pitivi?”

This is wrongly written as a single sentence. It should be two sentences, like:
“Search term not found. Did you mean: pitivi?”

Hi Dylan. Thanks for pointing that out. I've fixed it in the branch linked. It's worth pointing out that we don't follow the spec closely here, so in the future we may convert this into a 'full pane' message, rather than just a single line.

Changed in software-center (Ubuntu):
assignee: nobody → Kiwinote (kiwinote)
importance: Undecided → Low

    (needs latest python-piston-mini-client to work)
  * debian/control:
    - depend on latest python-piston-mini-client

  [ Kiwinote ]
  * softwarecenter/distro/Ubuntu.py:
    - we can't download an icon for a featured application if the cache is not
      ready (LP: #711857, LP: #717337)
  * softwarecenter/view/appdetailsview_gtk.py:
    - don't crash if app_details has no desktop_file (LP: #716245)

    - open external links in default browser (LP: #640520)
  * softwarecenter/view/softwarepane.py:

    softwarecenter/view/pendingview.py:
    - generalize get_icon_from_iconname method, wire it up
    - fix crash if an icon can't be found (LP: #716111)
    - try a different, subjectively better-suited icon for the history item
      (one that is also included in gnome-icon-theme)
