Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

On wide-screen monitors, the install button is left aligned, making it hard to notice for first time users.

A better place for this button would be under the icon / name, right above or below "free".

I am confirming this as a papercut, and also proposing the solution seen in 'software centre mockup.png'

I am marking this bug Invalid for Paper Cuts, because it is against the USC specification, and moving it would involve moving several other elements in a way that is not obvious and would need to be designed. (For example, would the "Install" button in a list view move too? How about the progress bar?)

I'm also marking it Incomplete for USC, because the report contains no evidence that the button actually is hard to notice. Normally I wouldn't require that evidence, but in this case we have done user testing of USC, in which none of the participants have yet had difficulty finding the button.

Right now as I write this, we're doing more user testing that happens to be on a wide-screen display. So if people do have trouble, we can reopen this bug. We can also reopen it if anyone else publishes their own user test results. But if we do, "move install button to the left side" is only one of the possible solutions.
