Gdebi doesn't show required dependencies list on non Xubuntu Session than a line.

Bug #1524053 reported by John Doe
This bug affects 10 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gdebi (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I've tried both Ubuntu Minimal+XFCE & Xubuntu 16.04
This gravely affect of XFCE, Openbox session on Ubuntu 16.04.
However this doesn't happen on Xubuntu 16.04 Session at all it shows dependencies list normally
But on XFCE, Openbox session it only shows a line.

We need more tester to confirm other session as well such as:
Unity, Ubuntu, KDE, Kubuntu, lxde, lxde, Lubuntu, Edubuntu, Mythbuntu,
To confirm if it's only affect on non-Ubuntu flavor Sessions.
or are they affect to all Sessions Except Xubuntu Session?

I have the same problem, Unity session on ubuntu 16.04. If you can, please fix it , it's really annoying that one of your favourite app doesn't work on fresh system as it did in previous.

Soon 7 years later, no improvement ?

On 22.04 the part of window showing needed dependencies won't resize, only 3~4 lines displayed.

Same kind of readability issues in « Users and Groups ( provided by gnome-system-tools )
