View Full Version : [ubuntu] Synaptic installing error

August 23rd, 2008, 06:28 PM
I have a Synaptic error that reads every time I install a package.
error reads:

"debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Dialog
(Dialog frontend will not work on dump terminal , an emac shell buffer, or without a controlling terminal
deconf: falling back to frontend: Readline
Selecting previously deselected package ****"

Then it goes on to reading database and installing package.
I get this with or without Dialog installed.
How I fix it?

I'm not sure if this will work, but try:

sudo dpkg --configure -a

See how it works.....as long as it still installs the package, it's not a big ordeal.
