Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Icons are not displayed for the gstreamer Fluendo codecs for sale in the Software Center. MVO was kind enough to investigate and figured out it is a bug in Software Center relating to packages with a "." in their name.

1. use maverick software-center
2. launch and select the "For Purchase" item in the left nav pane
3. check the Fluendo codec packs (Fluendo Complete Playback Pack, Fluendo Windows Media Pack) in the list view and verify that each displays only the generic stock icon
4. install software-center version 3.0.9 from maverick-proposed
5. clear (or move aside if you prefer) your local software-center cache by typing the following into a terminal:
    cd ~/.cache
    rm -r software-center
6. reopen software-center
7. verify that the Fluendo codec packs now have non-generic icons

In bug #761838 you commented that MVO has fixed this problem. Should this bug then be set to Fix committed or Fix Released? I see the icons for all for-purchase apps in my Software Center install from Natty.

Hi Robert,

This is fixed in Natty, but I still need to SRU it for Maverick. (I appreciate the indirect reminder!) Could you mark it as such. (I don't have the powers)


Robert Roth (evfool) wrote :

I don't have the right to do that neither, so we'll have to wait until a software-center maintainer opens a distro task for maverick. I'll leave this as Incomplete for now, because marking it as fix released would hide it by default from searches, and I guess that wouldn't be the best thing to do until the maverick distro-task is not opened.
