Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

please see the screenshot: the language combo is automatically sized to the longest language name. But this is wrong, as it only recognizes the closed combo - if you click on it, there is also the vertical scrollbar to draw - and therefore many of the languages are cut off (with ... between the letters, see screenshot).
In some cases, you can't even distinguish two similar written languages (see screenshot, "Slo...ina").

A workaround would be to set it on a fixed size, there is plenty of space.
Or Add the width of the scrollbar to the width.

Small bug, but smoother KDE experience.

Oh, I could report hundreds of this tiny bugs in KDE that would make it MUCH smoother.
If only any of them would be responded to as fast ad to this one...

Two options:

a) make the combobox wider
b) Get rid of the combobox altogether and dream up a new superior interface (popupish) which can make perfect use of available screen real estate and provide additional features such as filtering

I'd go for b personally.
