Bug Description

Binary package hint: usb-creator

When the device is being formatted, the partition size is not updated properly in the front-end for usb-creator-kde, like it is in the gtk version.

Updates to the gtk version along with changes in the back-end are the root cause. The kde front-end will need to be updated to fix this.

At this point, you may still use the format button, however, you need to either eject the disk or restart usb-creator-kde to get the program to detect the newly formatted partition correctly.

  [ Roderick B. Greening ]
  * Get rid of the needs-format warning for now. It was always shown
    for parent block devices and the confusing resulting from that was
    quite bad. This was previously done for gtk but not kde version.
  * Update kde frontend format option to match gtk frontend/backend
    (LP: #553460)
  * Add warning dialog to format button for usb-creator-kde, to match gtk.
  * Add BusyCursor while formatting under usb-creator-kde, to match gtk.

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Change the format button's label to 'Erase Disk' as it wipes the
    entire disk, rather than an individual partition (LP 484252).
