Usage of Column headers in GtkTreeView widgets

Bug #135285 reported by Vincent Geddes on 2007-08-28
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

In the "Choose Graphics Card Driver" dialog, there are two GtkTreeView widgets labelled "Hersteller" and "Modell" which use column headers to display their labels.

Using column headers really only makes sense if there is more than one column in the treeview, otherwise the visual design just looks a bit off-base. Page 91 of the GNOME HIG elaborates on this issue.

The solution would be to hide the column headers and place a GtkLabel above each widget.

Here's an example of a similar dialog, but using labels instead of column headers

P.S. The "Hersteller" and "Modell" widgets also need more indentation (from the left) to properly denote that they are below "Choose Driver By Model" in the task hierarchy.
