Remove malcontent, restart system and launch gnome-control-center. Go to the Applications panel and see that it's empty.

Error: `cc-applications-panel-WARNING **: Error retrieving app filter: App filtering is globally disabled`

I assume this because the package is being built with malcontent support but malcontent isn't being installed as a dependency.

Malcontent should be a dependency of this package.

The issue is disappears after installing malcontent and restarting the system.

Upstream bug:

Additional info:
* package version(s) gnome-control-center 42.3-1
* config and/or log files etc. None
* link to upstream bug report, if any None.

Steps to reproduce:

See above.

Note that malcontent is part of the "gnome" group. Therefore users who install gnome by following the wiki won't have a problem.

At least, for now, set "malcontent" as optional dependency of "gnome-control-center".

So we now have malcontent optdep as of gnome-control-center 42.3-2

@heftig, you ok with this being closed? Hopefully it's enough for those users who might trip over it.
