Description Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-04 05:05:37 EDT
Description of problem:

Instead of having to right click and choose connect, 
users could just click a connect button..

And I somehow feel the order of buttons is wrong.

I feel it should be.

[ Connect ][New][Open][Details][Delete]

( Added the missing connect button there ) 

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

How reproducible:

You can simply double-click to activate it. In latest upstream you can also mark
connections to auto-connect at startup, so I don't feel there's a need for extra

As for button ordering, I'm undecided - will have to try it out and see how well
it works.
Comment 2 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-04 08:35:33 EDT
I had absolutely no idea I could do that..

That ofcourse obsoletes the need for an extra button.
( Connect/disconnect should have been the same button )

You might then want to add a info msg box when mouse pointer is over it 
"Double click to connect" so user can instantly know of this feature.  

Since double click can be used to connect I think users 
should also be able to use double click to disconnect.

Of course with the "Double click to disconnect" 
info msg box when mouse pointer is over it.

How do you feel about keyboard shortcuts 

<ctrl>-c # Connect
<ctrl>-d # Disconnect
<ctrl>-n # New

Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.

Tooltip double click hint added upstream;

Comment 5 Mark McLoughlin 2009-10-29 12:38:57 EDT
Adding to F12VirtTarget, but it'd probably be fine to close as resolved upstrem
Comment 6 Cole Robinson 2009-12-03 18:53:05 EST
This should be fixed in virt-manager-0.8.1-1.fc13 which will be in the next rawhide compose.
