Public bug reported:

Dapper AbiWord 2.4.4 i386

install abiword, then abiword-plugins
choose tools, plugins, Install new plugin
Open file dialog appears with an arbitrary location

A typical user would have no idea what to do nor where to look.

less /var/lib/dpkg/info/abiword-plugins.list

provides the clue that plugins are installed at /usr/lib/AbiWord-2.4

Note the inconsistency in capitalization frustrates the use of

locate abiword | grep plugin

Could we have a have a functional deafault location?

** Affects: abiword (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Untriaged
         Status: Unconfirmed
