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)
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.
+1. I'd also like to note that the command line tool is just as bad; neither install nor remove gave me any information.
+1. I think it's a crucial piece information for every downloader/installer. Also, estimated download speed is needed.
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
