|Summary:||Internet search applet wastes space|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] Desktop Widgets||Reporter:||Thomas Perl <m>|
|Component:||Internet search||Assignee:||unassigned <nobody>|
|Status:||RESOLVED WONTFIX||QA Contact:||internet-search-applet-bugs|
|Priority:||High||CC:||andre_klapper, quim.gil, roope.rainisto|
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: Add the "Internet Search" applet to the Desktop, resize it so it is about half the size of the screen. EXPECTED OUTCOME: The input area is still readable and has enough room to display text. There is no need for so much padding, so many arrows and the black "resize grip". ACTUAL OUTCOME: The right resize grip (the black one) wastes too much space. There are also too many arrows (in my opinion) and too much padding, which makes the search applet only usable when it is resized to the whole desktop size, which takes away space for other applets. REPRODUCIBILITY: Always - Simply add the search applet, resize it to half of the screen and see how much space is left for the search text entry. OTHER COMMENTS: It would be really important to fix this, as nobody is going to use such a big black resize grip - it takes away space that is better used for other applets on the desktop.
Re-assigning to UI interaction
I would try to create a patch and send it in, but I cannot find the source code for the Internet Search applet.
thp: should be part of the hildon-desktop module.
I can't find the "isearch-applet" source in the "hildon-desktop" source package. In scratchbox: apt-get source hildon-desktop cd hildon-desktop-2.0.6/debian/ grep "^Package:" control Gives me: Package: hildon-desktop Package: hildon-desktop-dev Package: hildon-desktop-dbg Package: libhildondesktop0 Package: libhildondesktop-dev Package: libhildondesktop0-dbg Package: libhildondesktop0-doc Package: libhildonwm0 Package: libhildonwm-dev Package: libhildonwm0-dbg The Internet Search applet on my N800 (OS2008) is in the package "isearch-applet" that is not generated by the "hildon-desktop" source package.

Sorry. This home applet has been dropped in Fremantle and no more development will be done for it in Diablo. No more waste of space. (please accept the blink) ;)
