Hi I am taking part in the app showdown but I made a typo on my project while creating it. Can I change this in such a way that the page is changed too? My app name is liberedit however my typo resulted in libereedit, so if possible I would like to change that. I did manage to change its display name correctly just not its page name though, but if possible I'd like to get the project page link right too.

  • You can use the quickly configure lp-project <your project> command to correct the Launchpad project Quickly will talk to
  • However, if you made a typo in the name of the app, I'd suggest to recreate the local Quickly project from scratch with the quickly create command, which is going to be easier. Otherwise, you'll have to search and replace the name in all text files in your project.
  • You can change the name of the project in Launchpad. Simply use the 'Administer' link. Or you can do it with this direct link:

You can't rename a project on LP unless you are an admin. (Relevant bug report) – jokerdino Jun 18 '12 at 13:43
Thanks @jokerdino, I wasn't aware of the bug. I've fixed the package name for him, then. – David Planella Jun 18 '12 at 13:46
Thanks for renaming the project for him. :) Upvoted. – jokerdino Jun 18 '12 at 13:48
Yes indeed, thank you very much! I really appreciate that, apologies for the delay in checking this page, work was busy. – Neil Munro Jun 18 '12 at 20:35
