Am I the only one who can not really make heads or tails of KPackagekit?
I see none of the supposed advantages over Adept (at least not Adept
KDE3 style) so I wonder what they might be or I am too daft to get it.
Example: I try to find a network app. In the "dropdown menu" I choose
I then type "kde" in the search field to narrow down the results.
Forget it, the search field settings and the category dropdown does not
seem to have any connection. Now I get all apps with "kde" as output.
And I fear the day I will have to explain this application and method
for installing to "new linux user" who may want to play a game, find a
scan application and just scout around for applications... as I am not
even sure myself how to narrow down a search for "kde and games", as an
The "Help" button is greyed out as is "Defaults", whatever that might
stand for in this case. There are no menus that I have found.
The version of Adept in the repos is even worse but I hope that is not
the reason for choice of KPackagekit.
Am I missing something really obvious?
