In Debian, I can use the above URL to quickly see the open bugs for a package. In Ubuntu, it seems I have to go to launchpad, and click, click, click... which is .

Is there a quick way to see all the bugs of a package in Ubuntu? One which doesn't require clicking through hell and back?


There's a link called "Bug Reports" at the package information page of every Ubuntu package. You can also try to open https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/[PACKAGE NAME]/+bugs directly.

Take apache2 in Ubuntu 9.10 as an example: http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/apache2 leads to https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apache2/+bugs

  • The packages link, while still not as direct as Debian's (well, packages.ubuntu.com looks like it's the same code as p.d.o), is better than "clicking through hell and back", so thanks. – Jürgen A. Erhard Mar 19 '10 at 17:50
