    Software Center

    Anyone else having problems with it? Mine suddenly won't startup and this is the output from terminal:

    Code:

    Had the same problem. Most recent update solved the problem.

    (Please change your Title to [solved]. Thanks.)

    That's it. Clean install of Alpha 1, software center worked. After first round of updates, it still worked. Then I got some more updates later that evening and then it stopped working. :/

    Re: Software Center

    Figured out what the issue is here, maybe not the ultimate fix but certainly should resolve S-c segfaulting

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install python-configparser
    Edit: I see that there is a new S-c in proposed that fixs this - so scratch the above & install s-c 13.07-0ubuntu1

    Cool. I'll just wait until it hits updates. Using proposed in the past has borked my installs.

    You're right. I ran S-c again, and now it's broken, again, with the same message as you posted.
