Description Sunil Khiatani 2009-07-18 20:50:07 UTC
Version:           2.1 (using KDE 4.2.96)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

the dialog for configuring the ampache service is too confusing.

The list box on the left is not effective:

1)It allows more me to add ampache servers with the same name more than once. 
2) when I try to modify a value, pressing new accidentally will create a new entry with the same name.
3) it's just strange..

if it's possible can the listbox be changed to a drop down box that's placed above details.  This allows clear separation and isolation.  Also, instead of the buttons, use + and - buttons like KContactManager will uses, or KCalendar uses for distribution lists.  It's a much more cleaner interface.

Thanks for your time.

It's a bit confusing indeed and could do with some cleanup. This isn't really a bug though.

Moving to wishlist, then.
Comment 3 Sunil Khiatani 2009-09-13 15:40:15 UTC
It felt like a bug to me because I kept making duplicate entries and deleting the wrong settings.

Either way...thanks for the effort :)

On second thought, flagging this as a usability issue is more useful.

Any takers for a new Ampache configuration dialog?

I'm willing to take a look at this as a small task this weekend. Will have a good talk with Jeff Mitchell on it.

Changing target.

Fixed in v2.3.2-48-g40151eb with a new table-based UI.
