Package: libfribidi-bin
Version: 0.19.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
I was helping someone with a bidi issue, and received the following message on
a debian command line:

The program 'fribidi' is currently not installed.  To run 'fribidi' please ask
your administrator to install the package 'libfribidi0'
fribidi: command not found

The problem with that message is that the debian package for the command-line
utility is libfribidi-bin.

This became frustrating for me as that package was, in fact, already installed.

Please correct the (well-intentioned) 'helpful' message.
