[Conf] mintInstall 6.5.1 Show:Installed not working properly

Postby Ezel » Tue Jan 05, 2010 12:38 pm

There seems to be a bug with mintInstall 6.5.1 and the status-colors.
If one sets "Show: Installed software" one gets all the green-statuses (which I guess means installed) but one also gets a few orange ones (at least I do, since I have a few of them).
Now, there are NO explanation to what the h*ll those colors mean and the only clues I've found are from this blogpost which seems to show some older version of mintInstall:

It says here that orange=Special (but I guess not installed). So. Orange-status items shouldn't be shown when one sets "Show: Installed software".

Also a short explanation of the statuses would be nice in the help-menu (or ANYWHERE), which at the moment only has an about-page.

Confirmed - but this is more for the wish list
I have one yellow and that's skype
An apt search reveals
p python-skype
which means that there is one not installed package available and that does not make sense
Reported to Launchpad
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
