Issue if installed by gdebi as a dependency

Bug #367959 reported by Vadim Peretokin on 2009-04-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Gnome Virtual Terminal Emulator
gdebi (Ubuntu)
Michael Vogt

Bug Description

Binary package hint: postfix

If postfix gets dragged in as a dependency by gdebi, it does not open a graphical configuration window but a terminal one.

Since gdebi's terminal is closed by default, the user might spend a lot of time waiting and wondering why isn't anything being installed, while postfix is waiting for user input.

ProblemType: Bug
Architecture: amd64
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.04
NonfreeKernelModules: nvidia
Package: postfix 2.5.5-1.1
SourcePackage: postfix
Uname: Linux 2.6.28-11-generic x86_64

Thanks for your bugreport.

gdebi sets DEBIAN_FRONTEND=gnome - was perl-gtk2 installed when you ran into this bug?
