Menu application search flaw

Post by lotech »

Hi there,

I am running LMDE2 64bit, I tried to find an application on the menu search bar, but it does not filter properly, so that when I search for 'printer' it shows 'colors' on the top of 'printer'.

The search (at lest with the Cinnamon desktop) does not only look into the names of the menu entries, but also into other data like the description of the menu entry or some keywords. That might explain, what you have found.
