Adept dist-update error window is too small

Bug #207445 reported by nitrogen on 2008-03-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: adept

If the filename in an error message is longer than the width of the error window, the filename is truncated and other elements of the window are placed beyond the right edge of the window (including the Close button). There is no scroll bar or other indication that the window should be made wider.

This was encountered while upgrading from Kubuntu 7.10 to 8.04 beta.

Note that I am reporting the incorrect layout of the error dialog. The actual error itself has already been reported elsewhere.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. I've tried to reproduce this issue, but it works great for me! The text has been split in two lines and it was easy to read. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.
