Ubuntu Vivid, qgis master from debian-nightly. The qgis.desktop file (attached) wants to execute /usr/share/qgis:
But this won't work:
[email protected]:~$ ls /usr/bin/qgis bash: /usr/bin/qgis: No existe el archivo o el directorio [email protected]:~$
(translation: The file or directory does not exist)
Actually there's no /usr/bin/qgis, there's a qgis.bin instead:
[email protected]:~$ ls /usr/bin/qgis* /usr/bin/qgis.bin [email protected]:~$
Synaptic reports that /usr/bin/qgis has been installed though (I guess I can get the same piece of information from dpkg or apt-get but I am not familiar with the syntax). I would say this is a packaging issue but I can't find a category for that. Priority could be low --the program works, as long as you execute the right binary or blocker --the average Joebuntu could be unable to launch the program.
Might be related to #13310 (the diversion thing). There's also a similar issue with the standalone browser.
