Description Pat Young 2008-05-18 15:42:10 UTC
Description of problem:
When you view updates with the gpk-update-viewer, the text of the update
description doesn't word-wrap at the window edge.  This results in a long
single-line of text that you need to use the horizontal scrollbar to see

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

How reproducible:
See that you have updates with the PackageKit Update Applet.  Click on it and do
'Show Updates'.  Any update with a lot of text for the description will not

Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'Show Updates' with PackageKit Update Applet
2. Select any update that has a lot of text with the description field
(amarok-1.4.9 update is when I first noticed it, but it affects any update with
a lot of text for the description).
Actual results:
Description text does not word-wrap at window edge (text-box edge may be more

Expected results:
Update text would word-wrap to stay in that window, making it more readable.

Yes, this is a limitation on GTK. We would need to create a custom renderer for
this to work using the current GTK version.
