Good "The GUI should provide information about download speed , the number of remaining files to download, and the estimated time for each file"

(In reply to comment #1) > Why? > Because simple progress bar will not give enough information (for example, if something is wrong with connection, so nothing is downloading). W/o ETA i cannot decide, when i should to run BitTorrent client (or any other download tool, which will compete for bandwidth with PackageKit). So, i think, that PackageKit should show some information during download...

gpk-u-v2 is a bit better here but the download and install process is insane for me. yum in terminal gives pretty nice reference output.
Comment 4 Michael Maltese 2009-05-10 15:11:46 UTC
+1. I'd also like to note that the command line tool is just as bad; neither install nor remove gave me any information.
Comment 5 Tomasz Chrzczonowicz 2009-09-11 22:49:12 UTC
+1. I think it's a crucial piece information for every downloader/installer. Also, estimated download speed is needed.
Comment 6 Richard Hughes 2011-03-14 02:56:09 UTC
This basically comes down to the UI designers. If they want speed, it can easily be added. I think they pretty much want all the details hidden for GNOME3.

We moved the upstream bugtracker to GitHub a long time ago. If this issue still affects you please re-create the issue here: https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/issues Sorry for the impersonal message, and fingers crossed your issue no longer happens. Thanks.
