Description Jean-François Fortin Tam 2010-11-11 10:16:53 UTC
On Fedora 14, searching for "video editor" returns a bunch of irrelevant search results, such as alacarte, audacity, CGDB, anjuta, etc.

I'm guessing they are shown because they have the word "editor" in their description.

Yes, gpk does an OR search by default. Some of the PackageKit backends don't yet support doing "AND" searches, although when 0.6.x forks we'll probably switch the default then and force the other backends to catch up.

I still don't think we can do this without client-side filtering. :(
Comment 3 Jean-François Fortin Tam 2016-07-19 12:54:06 UTC
For what it's worth I retested this now and it still affects GPK 3.21.x

We moved the upstream bugtracker to GitHub a long time ago. If this issue still affects you please re-create the issue here: https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/issues
Sorry for the impersonal message, and fingers crossed your issue no longer happens. Thanks.
