Description Gendre Sébastien 2010-05-27 15:55:24 UTC
Description of problem:
In Gnome-disk-utility, the UI is too big and have too widgets. For exemple: with a 1024x768 screen, the window are out of the screen.

The problem comes to the displaying of disk and volumes informations, and options, in the same area.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-disk-utility 2.30.1

How reproducible:
Simply teste gnome-disk-utility, installed by default in Fedora 13 Gnome.

Additional info:
I had two solutions in comment.

Comment 1 Gendre Sébastien 2010-05-27 16:03:48 UTC
I propose two solutions:

Simply add volumes to the big tree in left of UI.

Put disk informations and options in an area of a notebook gtk widget and volumes information and options in another area of this notebook gtk widget.

Thus the size of the window would be very reduced and may be displaying on a netbook.

Comment 2 Gendre Sébastien 2010-10-02 20:16:43 UTC
The problem comes, precisely, when you select a disk with encrypter LVM partition in Gnome-disk-utility. The UI becomes too wide for 1024 px width screen and too high for 768 px height screen. 

It's even more annoying than majority of new laptop have a 1366x768 screen.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 13:14:30 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 16:48:42 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
