Can't find epiphany web apps

Hey, what's new in Epiphany 3.2 is the possibility to save a URL to web applications, easily started from the Activity view. Nice. I can see many articles about that. But I can't get it working here… I am using epiphany-3.2.1-2.fc16.x86_64

Browsing about:applications? gives me 3 installed applications, but I could not find them on the applications view, neither with ALT+TAB. Sounds like a bug to me, but why only to me? I am probably not looking at the right place.

Once saving as a web app, I get a notification "web application ready" (or something like that), but then, the current epiphany windows still the same… What's wrong?

Ok, this is a bug, if you don't have the following folder created, the symlink will fails:


Would be fixed shortly. See the GNOME Bugzilla.

If you for example create a web app for GMail there should be an icon in the Applications overview called GMail, and its icon should be a kind of thumbnail of an open GMail page. If it's not there something went wrong, it does work here on my system.

As expected. But no I don't have them. Ok thank you, reported uptream. See #664751 at GNOME BZ
