ScummVM 1.7.0 Ubuntu package do not contain AppStream compatible metadata
|Reported by:||SF/dkessel||Owned by:|
Ubuntu is making the switch to using "GNOME Software" as the app store, which requires packages to have valid AppStream metadata for applications. The tool generating the AppStream metadata currently generates arrors for ScummVM (version 1.7.0, as in Ubuntu 16.04), because the icon cannot be found. When the package is installed (using other tools), the icon works just fine.
This leads to ScummVM currently being inavailable for users using the default package installation tool for at least Ubuntu 16.04 and Xubuntu 16.04.
Please help resolving this issue. Ubuntu will soon carry a patch for the package, so ScummVM will be available. But it would be great if the patch would not be necessary in the future.
