Pamac's (GUI) details/log view loses following status when too many lines come up too quickly
Pamac 10.4.3-1 - libpamac 11.4.1-1, the issue exists for quite a while, now.
Variant in use
Manjaro, Manjaro KDE
XFCE & KDE
What's not working
If you switch to the details view (little arrow on the lower right of the GUI window), it is in ‘follow’ mode, scrolling forward as lines come up. Sometimes many lines come up in quick succession and that is when the following status is often lost. You have to scroll down to the latest line to bring it back to follow mode. Pamac will loose the following focus again when a couple of lines will come up in quick succession.
How to reproduce?
Run a larger upgrade. Switch to detailed/log view Scroll down to make sure Pamac is autoscrolling to follow the log Wait until several lines come up in quick succession
More information (optional)
If this is intentional, I think it is a bad choice. Since it is a GUI anyway, there could be simple checkboxes (“always follow”)
Edit: It has been like that for a while, now, not a recent change.
