[Reportbug-maint] Bug#862554: Cannot copy text from error message

Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.6
Severity: normal


thank you for maintaining reportbug.

I tried to start the gtk2 version of reportbug, and I got an error message telling me that is hould install gir1.2-vte-2.91.

Unfortunately, I could not copy the text from the error popup, which made it really annoying to type the apt command to fix the problem.

Can you make the popup error message copiable?
