[Bug 1503418] Re: [REGRESSION] launching byobu from unity uses the terminal icon rather than the application icon


So, I guess this is mostly related to the changes in gnome-terminal that
now uses GApplication instead of the old factory.

It also doesn't support anymore the "--class" parameter as it used to be
in the past, but this shouldn't be related to this issue.

I gave a quick look (not with code yet), but it seems that at this point
for BAMF is quite tricky to understand who has launched that window, and
thus using the right icon (since the new terminal window is create by
the same main process of the other terminals). Passing a --class or
--window-role parameter (together with a StartupWMClass .desktop file
paramter) might help in doing this matching, but at this point things
seems quite tricky.

Bug description:
  I just upgraded to Wily yesterday, and it seems this regression has
  crept up again (it happened around the Utopic timeframe too).

  Install Byobu.

  sudo apt-get install byobu

  Open from the Unity Launcher.  Press Windows icon.  Type 'byobu'.
  Click on the Ubuntu terminal icon.  Byobu open in the default terminal
  (as specified in the byobu.desktop file), but the icon on the left in
  the unity bar is the Terminal icon, not the Byobu one.
