Description Josh Stone 2009-03-20 17:20:31 EDT
Description of problem:
The new update window has a minimum size that's too big for netbook resolutions (1024x600).

First, it starts with a very small window that is centered on the screen.  After it does its initial processing, it grows down and right so that a lot of the window is off screen.

Then I tried to move the window into full visibility, but the height is too tall for my netbook resolution.  Most notably, this means that the action buttons at the bottom are not visible.

I can resize the window somewhat, but it has a minimum size that's still too big to see everything.  Also, maximizing the window does almost nothing (the window decoration loses the rounded edges, but the size and position doesn't change).

I can ALT-drag the window up to get access to the action buttons, but I think most users won't know how to do this...

I just tried the latest on koji since rawhide is on its beta freeze:

With this one the window is still initially too big, but the minimum size now allows me to resize it down to something usable.  It's still a little too big even then, but I can at least use the buttons.

    bugfix: set an initial size of the new update viewer using gpk_window_set_size_request() so we can do clever things when in SFF mode. Fixes rh#491422
