Version: unspecified (using Devel)
'Download region' feature doesn't appear to work. When I use it, specify my options or use the default 'visible region' setting and click apply, the apply button remains depressed for a few seconds and then becomes unpressed once again. No notification of success or failure is shown, and the time it takes to become unpressed is not enough to actually download all the tiles specified (sometimes thousands) so I assume that it has failed for no good reason (wifi connection is connected to N900).
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
open app menu for marble on maemo, click download region, click apply and observe the above results.
nothing happens other than button being depressed and then becoming unpressed
notification of success or failure; specified tiles actually being successfully downloaded.
I'm pretty sure it does work unless you have the "Work Offline" option in the menu activated. The progress indication however is a bit hidden since it's completely outside the dialog: There's a round white/gray info box that shows a pie chart which indicates the download progress in percent. If you had a quite early version of Marble on Maemo installed (prior to any one-click installs), this info box may be disabled in the configuration file. The easiest option in this case would be to delete "/home/user/.config/kde.org/Marble Desktop Globe.conf" to restore the default settings.
yes you're right that there is a pie chart indicator that correctly displays progress. This is only visible when action is taking place however, and not when the connection is idle, so I hadn't noticed it before.
the problem is that this indicator is invisible when you are in the region download dialogue because it obscures the bottom of the screen where the indicator is based. a solution might be to replace 'apply', which is confusong when its pressed and nothing vosobly happens, with 'ok' which would ommediately close the dialogue and reveal the piechart.
this would save you having to implement the progress bar into the region download dialogue.

Don't show the Apply button on Maemo since it is only useful in modal dialogs.
