    dnfdragora

    thoughts so far, feel free to add your own. overall for me it's a thumbs up as it works better than yumex-dnf with regards package processing already

    pros:

    good package information and layout so easy to find it
    simple user interface
    good dependency resolution
    clear dialogues in popup windows

    cons:
    the need to cache groups every time it opens
    no apparent option to only toggle display of most recent package only
    no confirmation packages have installed successfully as for all intensive purposes it doesn't look like it did anything at all (e.g. execute dnfdragora from right-clicking a downloaded rpm in file manager, no way of knowing it's installed other than searching for it)

    Re: dnfdragora

    been there, contributed my tuppence worth. for F24 and F25 dnfdragora is backported and has to work with dnf 1 instead of dnf 2 which fedora 26 has. so not really the same scenario which is why I opened a separate thread for it here in the F26 development section

    Sorry @antikythera

    I tend to view all the topics in all the forums from the daily page, and don't pay attention to which forum each new topic is posted in. Obviously, I need to do that.

    Re: dnfdragora

    Yep dnfdragora needs to fix that missing information problem

    UI is ugly, lots of spaces in the hud not being used, especially the icon, should be in the about dialog (forgot its there or not)

    But the good news is less crash I think...
