It seems odd that I have to teach Ubuntu the word 'Ubuntu'. Why doesn't it know itself. Are there any plans to fix this?

It's been like this for as long as I can remember. I'm currently on 10.10.

Question inspired by this.

  • I agree to put on the dictionary. but most us are using Google definition google.com.et/…

That's a good idea, previously raised in this Brainstorm idea. I don't know of any reason why it's not there; it just needs someone to make the change.

Bug 63499 asks for this to be done. Ubuntu ships multiple dictionaries (even for English) so it may need updates to multiple packages.

  • Ah, didn't know it was already 'brainstormed'. I'll be happy to file that bug if someone let's me know which package to do so against.
