Bug Description

When I opted to install a package (0 A.D. in this case), it automatically copied the icon to the launcher and started to install. However, when I cancelled the installation, the icon was still present, after a new login with an "icon not found" picture. It should be removed when an installation is cancelled.

Hi Vincent, in order for this to work correctly, the Unity launcher service needs to monitor all of the installation events being sent my aptdaemon. This work is being tracked by the Unity team over at bug 1011681, so I will mark this as a duplicate of that one.

Meanwhile, we have an SRU for software-center in--progress (see attached branch) that will fix this problem until the aptdaemon monitoring work is completed on the Unity side.

Many thanks for your help!
