Description Vadim Rutkovsky 2012-02-15 11:18:07 UTC
Original report:

DistroRelease: Ubuntu 12.04
Package: nautilus 1:3.3.5-0ubuntu2


The buttons+text nautilus adds to windows for devices containing media is laid out poorly (see attached screenshot)

To reproduce:
1) Plug in a phone or USB drive containing media
2) In a nautilus window, navigate to the device from step #1

Expected results:
The Nautilus window has a message that "These files are on a digital audio player" with an "Open Rhythmbox Music Player" button, and/or a message that "The media contains digital photos" with an "Open Shotwell Photo Manager" button. The messages are left-justified within the nautilus window

Actual results:
The messages+buttons are right-justified within the nautilus window, which looks awkward (see screenshot). There are a couple specific problems:
* There is no padding between the right edge of the message and the edge of the window, so the text is jammed against the edge of the window which doesn't match the layout of any other text
* For left-to-right languages, the button comes before the explanatory text so you have to start reading in the middle of the line then jump back to the beginning of the line
* There is a funny stair-step effect of buttons within the window; they are not vertically aligned to anything

A better layout might be to move the explanatory text to the left of the buttons, left-justify the text, right-justify the buttons, and leave a space between the buttons + text that can expand as necessary with the size of the window.

Thanks for the report, I now pushed a fix for this to the master and gnome-3-4 branches.
