[Bug 377140] Re: Prettify the journal view


The GNOME Zeitgeist project for creating a GUI is now called GNOME
Activity Journal, and yesterday we released the first version of it.

You can get both the Activity Journal and Zeitgeist from our PPA:

Bug description:
If grouping is enabled, then "you don't see anything" as the groups start closed by default.  But when you open them, the view is quite cluttered.  Here are some comments about that:

* You can remove the treelines and just let GtkTreeView indent as appropriate.

* You can display "Firefox History (42 items)" instead of "Firefox History" to make it obvious that there is data in there.

* You can color-code each group (red for all Firefox items, green for all documents, etc.).  Then it's obvious which items belong together.

* In each item, the icons and text need to be vertically aligned at the top.  Just set the cell renderer's yalign property to 0.0, I think.
