Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

when in fullscreen mode and using hebrew rtl UI
the forward and backward buttons are displayed in reverse order
and the exit (X) as almost... not visible.

i guess the entire navigation panel/toolbar should be justified to the right
or set into rtl mode (some how)

and a little usability issue...
the "return from fullscreen" button should be slitely moved apart from the reset
of the buttons or placed in a more sensible position.

for rtl (hebrew) UI, i think the order of icons should be a little different.

1. forward (arrow pointing to the left) , play (triangle pointing to the left) , backwards (arrow pointing to the right)

since the entire UI flow of rtl users is right to left, i think the PLAY button should point to the left
and the forward arrow too ( as i see in many applications, ex. firefox ) BUT maybe the universal
convention of PLAY is an icon of a play button pointing to the right ?
anyways, the UI flow should be right to left.

2. the exit icon is half off bar.

3. the entire bar should be centred ? or justified to the right ?

is this the same issue with intrepid? could you send it upstream to bugzilla.gnome.org since you know better how the right behavior should be? thanks.

Thank you for sending to GNOME, it's useful to open ubuntu bugs for distributor issues, or if you don't know about GNOME or if you want a new version change to be applied in Ubuntu
