When I attempt to create a VM using Virt-Manager 1.2.1 with KVM on an
Ubuntu 15.10 host, the pull down menu for selecting UEFI says that
"UEFI not found" on the system.

However, the OVMF package has been installed from the Ubuntu
repositories, and according to my package manager, OVMF is installed
at the following locations:


1.  Where does Virt-Manager 1.2.1 expect to find OVMF?

2.  Can I change where Virt-Manager expects to find OVMF?

Here's a bit more info about my system:

host:  Ubuntu 15.10
virt-manager: 1.2.1  (installed from a custom deb file)
virtinst: 1.2.1  (installed from a custom deb file)
libvirt: 1.2.16  (installed from the Ubuntu repository)
qemu: 2.3  (installed from the Ubuntu repository)
seabios: 1.8.2  (installed from the Ubuntu repository)
ovmf: package 0~20150106.5c2d456b-1build1 (installed from the Ubuntu repository)

Thanks for any help you can provide!
