#10881 assigned enhancement

Show a notification when a package is installed/uninstalled

Description

Currently, there's no way to know if a package actually installed without either looking at HaikuDepot or seeing if it appeared in Deskbar. Ideally, there should be a notification that pops up. Something like the one in #10236 -- http://softwaredepot.xoom.it/HPKG_Installer/Screenshots/HPKG_Installer_III.png perhaps?

Also, it needs to take into account that mutiple packages could be installed/removed at once (don't have 20 notifications because 10 were installed and 10 were removed...) Perhaps just say "10 packages installed" and a "show more details" underneath that to see what the 10 are?

Given how CommitTransactionHandler works, this does not sound very hard, even the part about only showing one notification per set of packages changed. The only issue I could think of is getting multiple notifications like from SoftwareUpdater and this. But I can make the simple version and see how it works.
