So ubuntu is moving from the only slightly broken and very slow software
center to something more broken :P (I already had trouble finding
packages I know are there in SWC)
Fixing this means lots of tiny changes to almost every package that will
not impove the running of the application just so we can load it. On the
up side, it should make searching for the packges that do work easier.
This is why we still include synaptic in Studio. I will note that SWC
can't properly install jackd as an example, and probably other sw as well.
This why we have ubuntustudio-controls :)
