pacman 7.3.5-2: bottom bar (details, apply, cancel) UI confusion
Disclaimer: I'm a noob. And I understand UI can be subjective.
Observed behaviors: 1)After installing any package, "Apply Cancel" in the bottom bar(i.e," Details Apply Cancel") stays grayed out. 2)After opening the Pacman GUI, changing the 'State' option on a package even once, the bottom bar does not go off even if there are no more 'state' changes left.
Regarding the first observation: It confused me. I was worried if the installation is not completed. I opened the details it says completed.
Regarding the second observation: If the bottom bar is supposed to stay on even without any active state change selected or the presence of a recent installation, then, can't it(the bottom bar) be on all the time? Why the fancy animation of it coming up if it means nothing for it to hide?
In short (TLDR): There is a confusion btw what it means for the bottom bar to stay on and when it hides. In my experience, once the bottom bar comes up nothing makes it go down. So the question comes "why was it hiding?"
(I'm still figuring out how to make 'issues'. Hopefully, this made sense and is relevant)
