Description jimmy 2009-09-14 22:59:43 UTC
Using a netbook with a xdpyinfo of:
  dimensions:    1366x768 pixels (256x144 millimeters)

Ubuntu Netbook Remix 
2.6.28-15-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Aug 18 18:40:08 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

Application font is set to "sans 18 point" to make things readable on small high resolution screen.

Evolution's install screen is too big to fit on the notebook's LCD. It says "Please click the Forward button to continue", but no buttons are displayed on the screen, because they are off the bottom.

Obviously if even the install screen can't fit on the display, there wouldn't be much hope that the software itself would be able to fit onto a small screen using a large font.
