Critical installer dialog boxes not resizable
Status in “ubuntu-release-upgrader” package in Ubuntu:
Some critical dialog boxes are not resizable.
Most importantly, the dialog box which allows you to view the diff
when a package tries to install an updated version of a modified
The example I had last only showed me two or three lines of a huge
diff at a time.. certainly insufficient to review the changes
Also annoyingly, the install dialog is not resizable, even when the terminal window showing the update is expanded.
This poor dialog usability through lack of resizing reminds me far too
strongly of Windows.
