    If you wanted to see if same bug you could do this which would allow S-C to start

    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/views/appdetailsview.py
    (set your root gedit to show line numbers on edit > preferences
    Then scroll down to line 175 & remove these 2 lines & 1 empty line
    Code:
            # theme engine hint for bug #606942
            self.progress.set_data("transparent-bg-hint", True)
    If S-C then works you're affected by this bug, if not then it's something else

    This solution works for me, so the bug I reported is definitely a duplicate.

    Now I can continue to ignore the software-center.

    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    All the same errors above this post, and the daily cd also crashes, have not tried this edit on it.

    Edit worked on install GSC opens now.

    Re: Software centre

    Probably this was caused by the gtk3 upgrade the other day, Wouldn't know if it worked before that, but whenever gtk3 upgrades it's not surprising if something breaks

    Not gtk3, python-gobject instead

    I rarely use it except for easy access to the software sources, worked till today for me.

    Wasn't gtk3 upgrade, seems to be the python-gobject* upgrades that did the deed (3.3.1

    Thanks for the fix, it works without a hitch.
