Can't deselect fixes with space in computer-janitor

Bug #355535 reported by Aidan Fitzpatrick on 2009-04-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
computer-janitor (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: computer-janitor

computer-janitor fires up with a list of about 25 "fixes" to make, most of which are 3rd-party packages that I'd like to keep.

"Remove/fix?" is selected by default for all "fixes", but I only want the first 2. Thus I have 23 checkboxes to untick.

I should be able to select an item in the list of fixes and press spacebar to toggle the tickmark (like I can in "update-manager"). That'd make it much quicker to deselect the 23 than clicking with a mouse each time.

("select all" and "select none" might be out of place in this but they'd help, too...)

I'm using the stock GTK+ list widget for this, and the default way in which it works is that you have to select the actual tickbox once and then moving up and down with arrow keys and ticking/unticking with space works. I thought update-manager did the same thing, but now I see that it's doing some additional processing with this. I'll add that into computer-janitor-gtk for karmic. Thanks for noticing.
