Screenshot of the updater on a 800x600 pixel screen
Description of problem:
The new update viewer's usability is severly dimished due to the window not being able to fit on a screen with a 800x600 resolution, which is often used by Fedora on Fedora KVM virtual machines.
The problem persists even after changing application font size to 8 from the default 10.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora to a machine where a 800x600 resolution is used, or change the resolution manually to 800x600
2. Run gpk-update-viewer2
The updater is hard to use due to it not fitting on the screen.
The updater is usable and fits on the screen even on a relatively low resolution.
Already fixed in git master, they'll be a new version built in rawhide today which fixes this. Thanks for reporting.
