Bug Description

Ubuntu Software Center 5.0, Ubuntu 11.10 beta

1. Download Google Chrome at <http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?hl=en-GB&platform=linux>.
2. Open the package.

What you see: Ubuntu Software Center shows a generic package icon.
What you should see: The Chrome icon inside the package.

The fix for this bug probably should share code with the fix for bug 599676.

atm we don't actually extract any desktop files / icons / etc from standalone deb files, but it's probably something we should start doing.
