Package: plasma-widget-networkmanagement
Version: 0.1~svn1133205-1
Severity: normal

G'day.  This is an upstream bug, which I am happy to take there if that is
more appropriate — if you would be kind enough to point me to the upstream
BTS; I looked, but failed to find it.

My system has a comparatively high DPI display:

daniel@krosp:~$ xdpyinfo | grep -B1 resolution
  dimensions:    1920x1200 pixels (332x210 millimeters)
  resolution:    147x145 dots per inch

I still use appropriately scaled fonts on it, which is nice, but sometimes
leads to issues with GUI applications that assume a lower DPI display and
consequently have some issues.

This is common enough in the Plasma world, where fonts end up overflowing the
space allocated in the widget; in plasma-widget-networkmanagement this
actually results in some reasonable usability issues.

The biggest is that when you click on a network interface it jumps to the
display of the traffic graph and details; if this is done on the "eth0"
interface, the button to return to the main display is pushed under the
right-hand side panel and can't be triggered.

That makes it impossible to return to the main display if I click through
there and all.

The widget has a bunch of similar display scale issues, though: it has too
little vertical space for the checkboxes on the main display, too little
horizontal space for the network interface list, and too little space for the
"Show More" and "Manage Connections" buttons in general.

Finally, most of the indicators — the icons next to the listed entries in
"Connections", and the "Disconnect" button especially — are so small as to be
almost invisible on this system.  It would be great if they scaled based on
the platform DPI to ensure usability.
