Description AsciiWolf 2017-07-29 13:15:30 EDT
Description of problem:

There is not any appdata.xml/metainfo.xml file available in the Wireshark package. Because of this, Wireshark cannot be found and/or installed using the GNOME Software application or another package manager UI based on AppStream.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Open GNOME Software.
2. Type "wireshark".
Comment 1 Martin Sehnoutka 2017-07-31 07:47:49 EDT

the package "wireshark" itself is just a metapackage for Wireshark GTK and Wireshark Qt versions. Looking at the last Koji build, I can see appdata.xml in place:

Are you sure, that this is the root cause of this bug?
Comment 2 AsciiWolf 2017-07-31 07:58:24 EDT
Oops, I have overlooked that. Anyway, Wireshark is missing in GNOME Software. I am not sure what causes the issue.
Comment 3 Martin Sehnoutka 2017-08-01 08:14:39 EDT
I'm not familiar with gnome software, but there is definitely a regression. I think it could be caused by this commit, but I'm not sure, what is wrong with the new appdata file:

Richard, can you help me with this?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.
