Uniform update (download) progress output in eopkg
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When updating packages from the terminal, certain packages like libreoffice-common and paprius-icon-theme (and many others) print new lines to continuisly show update (download) progress while the majority display one line and only update the percentage within the line.

It's not a big issue, but certainly a minor annoyance :)

I'm in favor of unifying the progress output to display one line with a continuously updated percentage rather than displaying new lines, for conciseness and readability.

Make your terminal wider, if does that if it doesn't fit on one line...

Derp. Sometimes common logic eludes me! Thanks!

This will be addressed further in the change to the new package manager. ?
