Bug Description

When installing UbuntuGNOME (Desktop i386, 20131212) alongside another OS(in this case I've used Debian GNU/Linux 7.2) on a VM, the test fails on the step 8.

I was trying to make a dual boot

The expected result was that the bar should appear allowing to set the size of the partiotion by moving it.

The slide bar is not shown. In order to test it, just follow the install(auto-resize) testcase in a machine that already has an OS.

My machine has two internal drives. In addition to the slider bar being missing, the installer doesn't allow me to choose which drive to install to.

I was just going to say the same thing Jane just said :^)

So maybe we should rename? Something like "can't resize or select drive"???

please keep all bugs separate for now. there are currently multiple
themeing and rendering issues in ubiquity with new gtk3.10. it's not
clear which of the report bugs are duplicates and which are not. it
will be more clear, once we are past alpha1 milestone freeze and
issues are gradually fixed, and verified to be resolved on the

Thanks Dimitri, I'll open a new bug report soon.

Producing that new bug report is turning out to be problematic :^(

When trying to "test disc for defects" you get only a series of rectangles, but if you hit Esc a few times you can usually see the text of testing the disc for defects ................ yes, another bug :^(

But I'm reasonably sure that the installation media is good in spite of seeing the attached failure to report the new bug, see pic.

Maybe Jane could confirm bug #1262824.

Not sure why, but when do_draw method is overriden in the widget subclass, the parent widget's do_draw() method is not called, thus leading to this bug.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.17.4

  * Limit width of some long labels in prepare and wireless steps. (LP:

  [ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
  * In the ResizeWidget's, do_draw method, call the Parent's HPaned
    do_draw method, as it does not appear to be automatically called and
    thus results in no HPaned widgets getting rendered. (LP: #1260473)
  * Migrate ResizeWidget from HPaned to Paned, and use etched-in Frames
    instead of EventBoxes for better aesthetic appearance of the "handle".
  * Automatic update of included source packages: flash-kernel
    3.0~rc.4ubuntu46, partman-auto 118ubuntu1, partman-basicmethods 58.
