  Cannot Highlight or Copy text from Software-Center

Status in “software-center” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This bug has been reported and fixed in a prior version of Ubuntu, but
  I'm submitting a new bug because it is not fix in Ubuntu 14.04.

  You cannot highlight or copy any text (such as package-names) from the
  Ubuntu Software Center.

  When I do not know the name of a package, I often user Software Center
  to discover what the package name is. What a let down it is when I
  can't copy the text I'm looking for once I've found it. I'm a big fan
  of copy and paste to avoid mis-types, and in an open source desktop/OS
  I expect all text to be "copy-able".

  This feature is broken again 14.04.

  In addition to fixing this again, some thought should be given to how it can be fixed in a manner that ends this cycle of:
  " report > fix > break > report > fix > break again".
