Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

menu items not added when installing
by tech_user on Wed 3rd Nov 2004 11:49 UTC

when installing software, particularly from "universe", items do not appear in the menu.
the ubuntu forums tell me that they do not in fact use the "debian menu" system and so /etc/menu (iirc) is ignored. (?).

so i agree with the article author that is is its most serious bug wrt to its intended audience.
