[Bug 1570479] Re: [UIFe][FFe] Change application Name etc to Ubuntu Software


This bug was fixed in the package gnome-software -

gnome-software (3.20.1+git20160419.2.b8d2e40.ubuntu-xenial-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

  [ Sebastien Bacher ]
  * debian/control.in, debian/ubuntu-software.install,
    debian/ubuntu-software.links, debian/icons,
    debian/patches/ubuntu_software_name.patch, debian/rules:
    - create new "ubuntu-software" binary package depending on gnome-software,
      it allows us to have a name/description familiar to Ubuntu users
      without altering or removing the gnome-software one, also create a new
      desktop entry named "Ubuntu Software" for Unity (lp: #1570479)

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * New upstream snapshot from the wip/iainl/ubuntu-xenial branch at
    - Some snappy fixes (but the plugin is still disabled)
    - Actually install the featured.ini file

  [UIFe][FFe] Change application Name etc to Ubuntu Software

Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  We would like to change some strings in GNOME's Software application
  to "Ubuntu Software".

  The main reason is that our users are used to the old Ubuntu Software
  Center and many docs talk about it.  By changing the name to Ubuntu
  Software we can offer some assurances that it's the right tool for the
  job.  Our patches also make Software on Ubuntu very Ubuntu centric.

  It is not the intention to claim Software as our own work.

  .desktop "Name=" changes to "Ubuntu Software"
  Window title changes to "Ubuntu Software"
  Icon changes to the u-s-c icon
  having a binary named "ubuntu-software" for naming consistancy

  I have reached out to the upstream project and we've agreed that these
  changes can go ahead.
