Using the bug tracker

Listen bugs are tracked upstream at Listen Project. Click 'Register' under the Search button and enter your user name.


The basic search functionality is the search box which is designed to be simple to use. At the Search page you can search by:

  • status
  • Owner
  • Summary
  • Keywords
  • Version
  • Resolution

By clicking on "Add filter" , you add to the search filter; by clicking the "boxed - ", you remove filters. This filter technique allows very basic and very advanced searches. Help for searches is here.

After adding or removing filters, click on "Update" to begin the search.
