Re: [Webapps-team] Adding desktop files to launcher defaults!


Hi Jason,

The two web apps that are planned to be installed by default are "Amazon Shopping" and the "UbuntuONE player".

Last time we discussed this we reached a final agreement or where we should expose the applications. Mark said something about adding the Amazon app to the launcher during the Oakland sprint, although I remember you raised some concerns about the app being overexposed in the launcher.

So, how would you think these apps should be integrated with the desktop?

All the best,

Hi All -

Before we add anything by default, let's coordinate so we aren't surprising the community with anything.

        to follow up a bit on Robert's comment, I would love to hear
        about your
        comments on that;

        The solution we have (schema change and playing w/ multiple list
        settings) does not feel right to me (brittle IMO), and it
        might be hard
        to make it land (migration, etc.),

    If only we had a tool to do that... Oh wait! we have in quantal :)
    I can help you with that. Please read
    beforehand (random blog post ;)) and then, feel free to ask me
    questions on IRC about it.

    Also, you will need a FFe/UIFe and acked before doing that as we
    are past the freezes.
    on the ubuntu one webapp one, is that in replacement of the
    current ubuntu one "one" (otherwise 2 ubuntu 1 in the
    launchers...)? :)
