Description Michael Monreal 2008-04-19 05:51:13 EDT
You have been asking for UI suggestions on your blog a number of times but sadly
I just managed to install a copy of Fedora9Pre yesterday. Overall I am amazed
but the PackageKit UI really needs some love. The following is a list of
commented screenshots I did while using it. The changes are minimal (mostly icon
+ label replacements) so I hope this will make it into Fedora 9. Beyond that
there are other things worth changing which I could also write down if you like
(but that's clearly post-9).

Update System

Sorry I got a bit carried away with this (comment on this screenshot is a *bit*
longer...). Additionaly make sure that the dialog does not resize after e.g.
the last refresh time has been updated. Make the window a bit bigger at start
and then mark it not resizable.

Software sources launcher

IMHO this launcher icon is already quite over-used in GNOME for various
network-related stuff. What about shipping a custom icon that does reflect the
use of the tool better?

>What about shipping a custom icon

Mike is designing us a better icon now. I've got the first version in a local
branch, and I'll commit the better version on Monday.

>Updates done window

The HIG says a modal dialog should stay modal. I don't think a libnotify window
is valid when there is a modal window to take the state. If you close the
window, then libnotify is already used, as the state has nowhere to be displayed.
Comment 8 Richard Hughes 2008-04-20 17:32:33 EDT
>Download window

I've made the text left aligned and also set to linewrap. The Cancel Update
should remain as we need to provide context. Hopefully the jumpiness should also
be fixed.

Being part of the update window, what else would it cancel?
Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 05:42:56 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

I've done looooooads of your changes in the 0.2.x branch. Can you give that a go
and then update this bug? Thanks.
