Bug Description

Steps followed (following test case http://testcases.qa.ubuntu.com/Install/DesktopManual and others):
 - Boot the liveCD and click on Install Ubuntu.
 - Walk trough the configuration and start installation
 - Click on the small triangle to show details.

What i'd expect: The window expand and show the console feedback of ubiquity.

What happened: The window did not expand so the console is not visible. The "Skip" button appeared next to the short description of what's happening.

Also there is another minor feedback issue: If you go forward in the timezone selection and the go back to the timezone selection, the short description stuck at "Getting time from time server...". It eventually unlocks, can't tell if it is really stuck at that action or just the feedback stucks because of the above issue.

Thanks for your report. The terminal output is too small to be useful indeed (1px height)

Is that bug still happening for you?

I just did a few test installs yesterday and today and I remember being able to expand the terminal output (although empty) just fine.

15:14 < jibel> stgraber, this issue is fixed, but in return you win bug 830946

Well now the console appears but is too small to show messages. Of course you can scroll it to view them but is not really helpful, isn't it? It should be at least 2+ lines larger or the newline attached to every echo will cover the message.

Thanks for replying to this "insignificant" bug anyway (:
