Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

The manual partitioner in Kubuntu Ubiquity has a lag in updating the UI after making a change. During the gap you can make further changes and this confuses the state which then stops the user progressing.

Most of this is probably due to the frontend munching CPU (fixed in bzr), but we should definitely be locking out UI operations while the partitioning backend is working. I think we do this in the GTK frontend.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.2.12

ubiquity (2.2.12) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Accept and discard arguments to the KDE frontend's
    on_keyboard_layout_selected function (LP: #552399).

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Fix pkgsel/ignore-incomplete-language-support check (LP: #527623).
  * KDE frontend:
    - Ensure that entries in extra_bar_frames are never None (LP: #536912).
    - Lock out manual partitioning operations while the partitioning backend
      is running (LP: #540203).
  * Don't lower-case the locale attribute on frontends. This was added a
    long time ago; since then, it's become unnecessary since i18n.get_string
    lower-cases the locale itself, and it prevented us from finding
    slideshow files for language variants (LP: #476269).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: partman-auto 89ubuntu4,
    partman-ext3 58ubuntu2.

  [ Jonathan Riddell ]
  * Move oem-config-prepare-kde.desktop install directory to
    /usr/share/applications/kde4/, else it is labelled as a KDE 3
