specify sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)

ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When doing manual partitioning, partition sizes are specified in MB (the text says so). It would be far clearer if after the number there was a selection button where one could specify the units (Megabytes, Gigabytes, Terabytes etc).

That is, instead of:

New partition size in megabytes (100000 bytes): 10

it would say:

New partition size: 10 [Megabytes>]

and the [Megabytes>] is clickable.

Sorry Manuel,
but we use not more the manual reporting, whenever it could be done with apport.

Please use in futhur :


Anyway, at minimum please add the tag for the Ubuntu version you are on(e.g quantal or precise). This will give the information on what version of the installation system you are talking on.

You should also run:

apport-collect 1069378

(please install the missing libraries for this action- > see console output).

Affter this please set the status of the report back to new.

I don't see there how to report bugs in the installer. The installer does not have any "Submit feedback.." "Report a bug..." option.
