Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-03-27 22:20:29 EDT
Description of problem:

Don't use just color to differentiate between installed and not installed
packages. This is accessibility issue. If you are going to use color, provide a
additional hint besides that. Checkboxes are commonly used for this.
Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-03-28 08:11:05 EDT
Yes, somebody else mentioned that. Should the checkboxes go to the right of the
text, or to the left or right of the icon?
Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2008-03-28 10:18:23 EDT
In between text and icon
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-03-28 12:31:52 EDT
Richard, you can look at what pirut does for ideas. Not that I think that the
pirut approach is very clear...

We can also ask mike to give use some better installed/uninstalled icons.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-11 00:27:51 EDT
Better icons are in rawhide now
