[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#813079: chromium.desktop: StartupWMClass does not match actual WM_CLASS

Package: chromium
Version: 47.0.2526.80-1~deb8u1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

launching Chromium from gnome-shell favourites crates a new icon on the bar,
instead of marking the favourite icon as an open application.

This is due to a mismatch between the StartupWMClass in chromium.desktop
("Chromium") and the actual WM_CLASS of Chromium window ("chromium-browser").

Setting "StartupWMClass=chromium-browser" in chromium.desktop solves the

Thanks for your work
Alessio Gaeta
