command-not-found

Ubuntu Linux has included a package for a few releases now that guesses what you mean when you type a command.  It’s a great idea, especially for new users.  However, it bugs me.  Every time I make a typo the system pauses for a second while it tries to figure out a package that could solve my carelessness. 😉

Today I got tired of it.  At least on my little HP Mini-Note.  It’s not exactly a speed-demon at the best of times, and anything to help it along is worth doing.  So, if Ubuntu second-guessing you is getting you down, fix the problem by running:

sudo apt-get remove command-not-found

Problem solved.
