Description Armijn Hemel 2006-09-28 08:41:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; nl; rv: Gecko/20060918 Fedora/ Firefox/ pango-text

Description of problem:
The userinterface in hal-gnome assumes that strings are only a certain width. This clashes with some translations, where strings seem to be "cut off".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. n/a

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Additional info:
What I've described happens when I leave the default font on 10 points. If I scale down to 8, the problem "dissappears". Of course, this should be solved differently. I will attach a screenshot.

This screenshot shows that "Apparaattype:" can't be shown completely (the thing
between the red lines).
