[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#803989: chromium: Mismatch between desktop file and WM_CLASS

Package: chromium
Version: 47.0.2526.16-1
Severity: minor

When running chromium, gnome-shell shows the application name as "chromium-
browser" instead of the usual "Chromium Web Browser". I believe this has to do
with the mismatch of chromium having the WM_CLASS of "chromium-browser" and the
desktop file distributed with this package named "chromium.desktop".

This happens with at least versions 46.0.2490.71-1 and 47.0.2526.16-1, but
likely more.

Creating a link with the following command works as a workaround for me for the
time being:
ln -s /usr/share/applications/chromium.desktop ~/.local/share/applications
