|Summary:||allow filtering of list of applications|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] Settings and Maintenance||Reporter:||maemo|
|Component:||Application manager||Assignee:||unassigned <nobody>|
|Status:||RESOLVED DUPLICATE||QA Contact:||application-manager-bugs|
SOFTWARE VERSION: 2.2007.50-2 As the list of available applications grows, it becomes more difficult to browse, even if the user selects pre-defined categories. A simple filtering system would make it much easier to find the desired applications. For example, the two most obvious filters would be: Show only applications that have been changed or added since the last repository refresh. Hide all "library" applications. These are very rarely installed or removed independently, and it's much better (particularly for novice users) to surpress the display of these packages.

(In reply to comment #0) The first suggestion is a good one. Second one confuses me: > Hide all "library" applications. These are very rarely installed or removed > independently, and it's much better (particularly for novice users) to > surpress the display of these packages. This is how it currently works. Any libraries that are visible in Application Manager are bugs and should be filed as such in appropriate places. The exception is "red pill" mode in Application Manager. There library packages are shown on purpose.
IMHO, this bug would be INVALID+DUPLICATE ;) INVALID for the second request as Jussi mentioned, it's how currently work. DUPLICATE for the first request, there is two possible bugs with this feature request: https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1282 https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2900

Interesting. Then Chinook was completely broken for me. Anyway, this is past. :)
