Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-07-03 08:47:07 UTC
Description of problem:

Pick a package that has a long dependency chain, ex: rarian and try to remove
it. PackageKit spends quite some time pondering over the dependency list and
provides one with no usable way to scroll through the list (without using weird
combos like alt+ mouse drag. A clean scrollable text box with descriptions would
be better.

I see what you mean. I'll give this a go this afternoon.

how about this?

How about something like this?

Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2008-07-03 23:35:12 UTC
That looks much better. Maybe it could be a bit more cramped so that I don't
have to scroll much. Also a similar situation for installing lots of packages
