In most flavors of Linux that I've used, the output for apt search does not include the current state display but in Linux Mint (Sylvia) it is displaying and I would like to remove it because it interferes with my string-beginning (^) grep filters.
When I use the formatting flag (-F) I can get it to work just fine.
apt search -F "%p" apache
I would prefer this to be the default behavior. I have tried adding the configuration to the .aptitude/config file but am seeing no change. I tried both with Aptitude capitalized and all lowercase, as the configurations in the file by default have it lowercase, but the documentation has it capitalized.
I'm not sure if it's relevant, but when I add the display format to .aptitude/config it's inserting the following line above it every time, and if I delete the line it is replaced the next time I open the file.
I'm using apt 1.2.27 and aptitude 0.7.4-2ubuntu2.
