what behaviour do you expect?
Comment 2 Marian Mirilovic 2009-04-30 13:54:15 UTC
Hmm, removing Category column in Basic view should solve this issue as well.
Comment 3 Jaroslav Tulach 2009-05-04 09:17:37 UTC
I will prepare patch to remove the column and the actions from popup menu. 

This patch is likely clash with changes made in issue 163411, so I'd rather delay my work on it and wait for issue 
163411 to be integrated. Dmitry, can I expect issue 163411 be in on Monday, May 11? I'll be back from vacation then...

It depends on whether everyone agrees that the proposed UI is fine - that is likely not the case for now since there 
are still some open questions.

The other issue is that in detail view when invoke popup menu on a singe item (not checked) then the Activate/
Deactivate items are disabled. After I check it then Activate/Deactivate becomes accessible in popup menu.

More over if I select 2 items (e.g. C++ and PHP) and invoke popup menu and choose "Activate" then both plugins are 
shown in the further activation dialogs (not the one that I invoked the menu on).
Comment 7 Jaroslav Tulach 2009-05-15 18:47:27 UTC
I've applied the above patch as ergonomics#f1f7a4c125b6 
As concerns the popup when no item selected or more items selected, I consider that lower priority issue (if issue at 
all) and I'd rather leave that for some subsequent releases. The fix could be to select (at least/just) one item 
before the popup menu is shown.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200905160201* on (upload may still be in progress)
