Severe UI paradigm clash at final step for MBE/FE setup

Bug #211600 reported by QA_manager on 2008-04-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

After going through these nice 'Step 1' through 'Step 15' screens, each one politely handing me off to the next, it is quite a clash to suddenly have to hit the 'Escape' key to get out of a section so I can go to the next. Plus, it doesn't _tell_ me to hit Escape; I am left to just sort of figure it out. This is not a good user experience. This should really be fixed in Myth, but until such time as it is it would greatly smooth the transition if you messaged the user (at Step 15) about the paradigm shift ahead.

I agree, something should be done about this. We'll see what we can do.

Unfortunately, it will be too late to fix this for 8.04, but please file any other usability related bugs. I'd love to see that we address these for 8.10

Not sure setting this to RC is gonna be possible to fix. The problem is
that ubiquity is GTK and looks significantly different than mythtv-setup
with is QT/mythUI.... Seems like a bigger problem to me :(

The only possible solution I can think is maybe if we convert things so that
the last step isn't where you make your SD account, but instead queue it up
somehow for the first reboot before you log into your session for the first

So upstream is going to be targeting switching to a web based setup for 0.24 or so which we'll be able to pull a webkit widget for ubiquity at that time. I'm going to downgrade the importance until we get there.

We really do appreciate you opening this ticket to help improve Mythbuntu, but it needs to be closed for a number of reasons. The biggest one is that upstream has moved on to a new version and believes this to be fixed. Could you please verify if this issue still exists in the latest version?

Please do not let the closing of this ticket dissuade you from opening a new ticket if this (or any other) problem occurs with the newer versions.
