Description romuluspb 2015-05-21 09:22:45 UTC
Launcher detected by Icon-Only task manager is not the same as executed. Aparently in some cases it show application start script;

An example is VirtualBox:

executed -> /usr/share/applications/Virtualbox.desktop
detected -> /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox?

In some cases detected launcher did not execute.
An example is Netbeans, downloaded from site and installed in user space:

executed -> /home/romulo/.local/share/applications/NetBeans.desktop
detected -> /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/bin/java?wmClass=NetBeans IDE 8.0.1

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. execute any of the pointed launchers
2. fixate detected launcher in icon-only task manager 

Actual Results:  
Icon-only Task manager diverge about launcher entity... (what was opened or resultant in execution launcher?)

Expected Results:  
The best scenario would be that IOTM was able to associate those divergences automatically.

A special case are all chrome apps launchers, they result in the chrome browser launcher anyway, would be very appreciable if IOTM was able to identifies them as distinct launcher instances.
