Package: lxterminal
X-Debbugs-Cc: wbertrums at gmail.com
Version: 0.3.2-1+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Applications on Wayland should set their app_id to the same name as
their .desktop file. LXTerminal relies on GTK's default behavior, which
is to set the app_id to the prgname, which would be the executable name
by default. When invoking LXTerminal through a symlink, such as
x-terminal-emulator, this results in the app_id being set to the name of
that symlink, i.e. x-terminal-emulator. This behavior breaks various
things, such as compositors not being able to find its icon.
