#465 closed defect (fixed)

rename desktop Install icon to something ubuntu specific

Reported by: hamish Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: desktop


Considering all the installers we have floating around a user may become easily confused as to the meaning of the Install button on the desktop. Hopefully they stop before reformatting their hard drive, but it could be a good way to permanently harm the user's experience.

an attempt is made in r2382, but that may need to happen later in the build process though; not sure.

also the existing solution does bad things to non-english translations with the same root, perhaps better to use a stricter s/=Install$/.../

Since this icon is made during the stage the current solution does not work. I don't think Remastersys has an option to change this. Yet another reason to move to a new iso build.

Should we edit the iso manually and just remove it, or put in a boot up script that kills it since it's broken anyway ticket:475

the "Install Ubuntu" icon is weedy, delete it, log out and back in and it's there again. Need to study how ubiquity works a bit more.

If the change can be limited to the user account, all the better.

The icon now says "Install OSGeoLive". I think this ticket should be closed. Any objections?
