Description Aleksander Morgado 2012-11-30 13:31:40 UTC
So; I've got simple-scan and gnome-boxes installed. I look for "simple s" in the shell, and the first hit is gnome-boxes. I truly don't get why gnome-boxes is given as the first result here, but it doesn't seem right.

In any case, matches on the name of the software/package should probably be sorted first than other matches.

It seems that search is matching against the generic name:

Marking as a dupe of bug 682529.

Looking at this again, the problem seems to be with Boxes. Searching the GenericName *should* be fine.

The issue is that "Simple" isn't a good word to include in GenericName [1]. "Virtual Machine Viewer" seems more appropriate in this case.

I don't think we'll be pushing non-critical fixes to 3.6 anymore so changing the version.
