Description Voltaire 2011-05-09 01:09:26 UTC
Using German as installation-language, the required space used for installation is not visible/readable for the installation groups, as it is cut away.

When "manual installing" LibOff, you can choose what component you want to install. If you have german as instalation language, the size of the space that will be used is not visible/seeable for chapters/groups as it is cut away, because there is not enough space provided for the entire sentence that is showing that number.

Having the cursor on a line with a separate component, you can read: "Diese Komponente erfordert 4580KB auf Ihrer Festplatte."

So far no problem. But when you go to the entire group (with all the components inside, you can read: "Diese Komponente erfordert 0KB auf Ihrer Festplatte. Es wurden 6 von 6 Komponenten ausgewählt. Die Subkomponenten erfordern 48..."

That's all you can read. You can have there 480MB of space needed, or 48MB - you won't see it! No complete number, no unit - just two digits of a number without unit - and you don't know how big that number might be; you even don't know how many digits that number might have. You would have to calculate manually the total with the size of each component.

But when we ar at that chapter: There should also be a complete "group" so that it is possible to see the entire space that the whole installation will need (not only the separate component groups).
Now you can see:
- Program modules: 20...
- Optional components: 22...
- Language packages: 48...
But where is the total of all that?

Total is missing!

Another thing is: why tell that a component uses 0KB when you have your cursor-line at a group? You did not select a separate component; why to tell that the component uses 0KB? If you leave that away, there would be room for the used space.

To reproduce that problem: take any german-language WindowsXP and install LibreOffice. Don't choose the typical, but the customized installation (Angepasst).

And if that problem exists in one language version (here: german), please check also all other language versions. Thanks!

tor, can you look at this one

A remark to reproduce that problem: you don't have to install LO - just start the installer and to into a customized installation - until that mentioned screen shows the problem. You don't need to install any single byte and can cancel then without needing to install anything.

Is this fix guaranteed to resolve the problem in all locales (including those not currently supported)? If it simply increases the number of lines the text can wrap onto by a bit, this could possibly occur again in even wordier languages.
