License prompt is not obvious in Ubuntu 6.10

I just installed the 1.3.4 deb package on Ubuntu 6.10 and I noticed it was taking forever to complete. I clicked to view the details, and it was showing the License with a <more> prompt. I had to hit "space" a few times and then enter "yes" to complete the install.

Most Ubuntu packages that require user input will cause a new window to open up and display the text and buttons there. For example, try to install Sun's Java or Adobe Flash and you will get similar prompts to what you are trying to do.
