I should add a "Give me the Newbe Button Labels" Option ^^ ...

But just for the records:

- "Ebuild" opens you ... yes ... ehm ... the ebuild
- To actually emerge it you need to click the ... ehm ... yeah ... "Emerge" Button (ok - you need to click it twice: once in the package which adds it to the queue, calculating dependencies - and then again in the queue to actually launch emerge it)


Suggestion: change the name of the first button to "Add to Queue". Would be more intuitive that way, perhaps?

I have to 'refresh' Portato manually (either exit and re-launch Portato, or click on the later package version) to get the green indicator to move to the latest version installed. Would it be possible to get Portato to do this automatically? Thanks, Necoro.

You can use the "Revert" Button --- it reloads the current package page (and reverts non-saved changes --- but this should be no problem after finishing installing, as the changes are saved then =)). Reloading automatically should be possible though, I think ...

The "Add to Queue" would be clear at the first thought ... but how to differentiatie between "Emerge" and "Unmerge" as they both add to a queue ;)

"Queue for Emerge" and "Queue for Unmerge"?

I emerged the latest version of Portato and see you have changed the buttons along the lines I suggested, Necoro. Makes it more intuitive -- thanks!
