Description Valent Turkovic 2010-05-15 12:24:08 UTC
Description of problem: Mary needs a gnome clipboard manager, she searches it with "Add/Remove programs" and finds only one program. She installs it but that is not the program but perl script. Mary is very confused. Please make searching in Gnome Package Kit better for Mary If you search for clipboard application in Gnome Package Kit it finds only some strange perl package called "perl-Clipboard" The problem lies that Gnome Package Kit searches only names of packages by default and it is not obvious in UI where and how to switch to description search. yum by default searches descriptions also: $ yum search clipboard perl-Clipboard.noarch : Copy and paste with any OS parcellite.i686 : A lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager xclip.i686 : Command line clipboard grabber xfce4-clipman-plugin.i686 : Clipboard manager plugin for the Xfce panel xsel.i686 : Command line clipboard and X selection tool MyPasswordSafe.i686 : A graphical password management tool evince.i686 : Document viewer fpm2.i686 : Password manager with GTK2 GUI xfce4-screenshooter.i686 : Screenshot utility for the Xfce desktop Please make Gnome Package Kit search descriptions also by default and make more obvious in UI how to switch from searching names, description and file name. Maybe something like a check box that says "detailed search" and thus search descriptions also? Leave out file name search from basic UI, that should be somewhere not easily accessible by novice users but still present for more advanced users.

It is supposed to search by description by default... but some some reason this is being reset to name in the F13 packages.

commit dd3534a533a462e1c844a030dcaefaf8b57d0d3d Author: Richard Hughes <email@example.com> Date: Sat May 15 17:17:49 2010 +0100 Do not set the Add/Remove search to name but instead use the GConf defaults In gpk-application we were checking if the backend could search by details before we had set the possible roles and thus the check failed. This meant we always set searching by name, and the user got less results than they expected.
