Bug Description

The first-boot edge tutorial should cover a wider range of gestures than it currently does. Things like right edge swipe, bottom edge swipe, and long vs short swipes.

I've started looking into this. It's a small bit of work, but not undoable. Will hopefully finish by the end of next week. But talking to Olga, the design isn't finalized yet. So there may be some churn.

It is very important to explain the differences between short and long swipes from the right edge in the tutorial. From our beta testing user research, after three week's use of the phone, participants still did not understand the distinctions between these two gestures. An example comment from one of the participants: "I can never manage to bring out the page where has all the apps that I could close, every time when I got it, only accidentally"

Michael Terry (mterry) wrote :

Olga, another aspect of this redesign that Saviq brought to my attention: translations for the "fake apps" during the right-edge swipe tutorial. Currently, they show English wording.

If we're going to use screenshots that look like fake apps, we'd need to include translated screenshots. Which sounds like a pain. Maybe we could change the fake apps to not have visible text or temperatures or anything that needs localization?

I've split this bug in two:

- This bug, which is about adding new gestures to the tutorial (right edge swipe, bottom edge swipe, long vs short swipes).
- And bug 1386268, which is just about the new look and feel (and dropping the greeter swipe page).

This way, we can schedule the two changes separately.

summary: - Edge intro/demo redesign
+ Edge tutorial's redesign: new gestures

That is a very reasonable concern to be honest. I was thinking about that
on my flight back from D.C. We might have to come up with a design which
would work across different languages. Further, there is the problem with
the tablet as well. We might have to implement a different set of
images/screen for the oobe on tablet too.

---------------
unity8 (8.02+15.04.20150211-0ubuntu1) vivid; urgency=medium

  [ Michael Terry ]
  * Redesign tutorial to match latest spec (just removing obsolete pages
    and redesigning look, no new pages yet)
  * Add new right-edge and bottom-edge screens to the first-boot edge
    tutorial (LP: #1383297)
  * Support switching the indicator profile on the fly, as the greeter
    appears and disappears. (But don't use it yet, not until the
    settings panel to control this is in place.)
  * Clip the infographic to its bounding box, instead of letting it
    bleed past the welcome page (visible when dragging the welcome page
    to the side).

  [ Michael Zanetti ]
  * Add an AccountService based launcher model to be used with split
    greeter
  * Launcher fixes for windowed mode
  * save and restore window size and position
  * Fix resizing windows when making it smaller than minSize and then
    larger again.

  [ handsome_feng<email address hidden> ]
  * makes the header fully reveal when tapping the search icon. (LP:
    #1379327)

  [ Mirco Müller ]
  * Allow swipe-to-dismiss for contracted snap-decision notifications,
    interactive notifications and ephemeral notifications. (LP:
    #1355422, #1334855)

  [ Daniel d'Andrada ]
  * Make indicators bar eat all events
  * Improve Launcher tests, making them more reliable
  * Tapping on a surface gives it active focus
