I assigned it to the elementary UX team, because we need a mockup of what the error page looks like when a word isn't found.

The question is if we need it at all or not. Added to contributor meeting #10 agenda, but it's probably up to designers, doesn't require the whole project to discuss it.

I believe that a granite widget for this already exists, and that BeatBox uses it. You can look there and see how it should be done.

oops, sorry, commented on the wrong bug :(
Yes we need this for sure, we need a mockup and then to code the widget.

Like Harvey said, you can already grab that widget from BeatBox: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~beatbox-team/beat-box/1.x/view/head:/src/Widgets/WarningLabel.vala

Victor: could you propose a merge of it into Granite? It's a must-have widget for many apps.

Sorry, I assigned it to myself because I thought you were talking of use the Welcome widget to show the error.

However, it looks quite good all the same http://imagebin.org/202255

Uuhh... gotta ask Dan about that unified error widget he had in mind. I can't find any mockups. I think Marlin used to have something good there, but now it doesn't.

Sergey, should we ask for design input here or go ahead and propose a merge in Granite?

Dan's error page concept can be found in lp:~elementary-design/+junk/mockups in installer folder. It is different from what Lingo has now.

IMHO it's better to consult the UX team first either way.
