Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33202) Apache Flex Installer
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 18:58:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33202?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13478241#comment-13478241

Carol Frampton commented on FLEX-33202:

Additional related comments from Christophe Herreman (http://markmail.org/message/upvneftvfryczdzn)
- the Dutch version is missing translations (the selected directory is not
empty, the installer will download software..., I agree to all options...,
Required, I agree, install, the small license texts, copy log, Install log,
Downloading ... from ..., verifying, open apache flex folder). I did not
check other languages.

- buttons don't scale when translations are too long (in Dutch: install...)

- Layout: in general the layout is not similar to most other installers.
The logo is very dominant. The main content looks like a panel or popup
window that can be moved, probably removing the shadow would fix this. The
(red) checkboxes next to the licenses invite you to click them. It would
probably be better to have bullets there or so and change to a green tick
(without the square) when OK.

- log window: the window is resizable and has the logo in the background.
This is visible when you resize the window. Not sure if the logo should be
there; a grey background is probably good to fill the bottom bar. The log
entries are now in a List; perhaps this should just be a text area so you
can directly select (parts of) the text.

>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: InstallApacheFlex
>    Affects Versions: InstalApacheFlex 1.0
>            Reporter: Carol Frampton
>            Priority: Minor
> The following items should be considered for the next release.
> The first time I tried install I seemed to get a bad mirror.  After
> waiting about 5 minutes for the download I had to close the installer and
> start again.  I tried to use the same install directory but couldn't since
> it wasn't empty because of the temp directory left in it.  So two
> suggestions.  The flex-sdk-download should have a timeout on it and retry
> another mirror.  The close button should cleanup.
> For most dmg files, when you click the dmg file and it opens the app, you
> see the application's icon in the folder which you click to install the
> app.  For this dmg, I just see a generic app icon, not the pretty Apache
> Flex icon.  I don't know why this is but it would be nice to figure it out.
> The title bar says "Install Apache Flex for use with Adobe Flash Builder".
>   I thought we were trying to be more generic.
> The Nederlands locale shows the two buttons for the licenses - one is Toon
> MPL License (Toon seems to be show since there is a Toon Log button) and
> the other is Show Adobe License.  This is inconsistent.
> The Greek locale seems to be using a character not in my font.  The Show
> Log button has a missing character in the middle that shows as a solid
> diamond with a '?' in the middle of it.
> I know this is picky but the reason I suggested changing Apache to Apache
> v2 is because that is what the other license screens had.  Now the first
> screen says Apache License, Version 2.0 and the other screens say Apache
> v2 license.  For consistency they should all use the same terminology.
