Bug Description

When the installer is opened in Ubuntu GNOME's live session, it show up in the top bar as Ubiquity. I believe this name is determined by simply capitalizing the binary name (/usr/bin/ubiquity). I have noticed this in other Python apps (but not all of them) such as Gpartedbin and Apport-gtk. The "Ubiquity" name also shows up in the Alt-Tab window switcher and the left sidebar ("dash") of the Activities Overview.

Instead it should say either "Install" or "Install Ubuntu GNOME 13.10"

Presumably gnome-shell is failing to find the desktop file for whatever reason. If we fix that, then it should also fix the other python apps that mis-display titles.

Otherwise I think just "Install" is fine.
