View Full Version : [ubuntu] package manager messed up my system.
January 10th, 2009, 01:33 AM
Hi, I just recently installed some new updates and after it installed the stuff I got a list of stuff that was uninstalled.
So now I have missing files for alot of things. I can't run the ubuntu package manager.
Now ubuntu gives me a window for .deb packages that it's not a supported format.
what should I do??

You mean synaptic? Run it from a terminal and see what happens.
Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

ok,I get this from what you said to type in the terminal.
here it is: :/# gksudo synaptic
The program 'gksudo' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
apt-get install gksu
it seems it uninstalled itself weird... I will do that apt-get command.

Are you running intrepid, 8.10? If you don't have gksu/gksudo on your system anymore, that could explain why synaptic won't run from System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager. You need to reinstall gksu again.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gksu
