Description David Prieto 2008-09-30 09:50:08 UTC
While testing PK, I unadvertedly tried to select several packages using the shift key. While it gave no result, I think it would be a nice feature to be able to select several packages and right-click them to install / uninstall them at once.

This should work with PackageKit > 0.2.x -- what version are you using?
Comment 2 David Prieto 2008-10-13 13:07:54 UTC
I'm using 0.3.3 on Ubuntu Intrepid. Just checked and no, it doesn't work.

-Selecting several packages using shift or control doesn't work.
-Clicking the right button does not bring a menu.

Can't you just check the checkboxes and click apply?
Comment 4 David Prieto 2008-12-12 05:58:43 UTC
Yes, of course you can check them one by one. But having the option to do it at one time would be nice anyway.
Comment 5 Richard Hughes 2009-04-16 04:05:31 UTC
I think we want to keep the the checkboxes for now.
