Bug Description

software-center-gtk3 trunk r2155, Ubuntu Ocelot

1. On the home screen, look at the application tile for "VLC" in the "Top Rated" area.

What you see: "AudioVideo;Player"
What you should see: "Sound & Video"

It seems to be showing the raw Category data from the .desktop files, rather than the USC category and subcategory.

If fixing this requires the new database needed for bug 426999 and bug 554180, and that can't be implemented in time, I think it would be better in the meantime just not to show any category/subcategory data at all.

Thanks Matthew. I've set this as In Progress since it's not in trunk yet. I've also reported bug 831024 on adding the proper categories and subcategories.
