    Issues after failed install of DropBox

    I had a failed attempt - broken package with DropBox.

    I had an issue with the updater. - Solved that issue Thank you Forums!

    I also followed all the suggestions in another thread on how to remove and clean up the mess that failed install- Again thank you Forums



    However, several problems still exist. I have lost Software Center and I have no text Editor - The system is using wine to open notepad...


    I am at a stand still. Everything remains stable but just those issues.
    Thank you in advance for any help!

    Try the following commands one at a time in the terminal and report any errors . If the applications open attempt it with the launcher icons. The software center will display normal errors when launched from the terminal.

    Code:
    gedit
    Code:
    software-center

    Neither were installed?

    What thats says to me is that the Drop Box install removed them ?

    Installing them now.

    I have installed nautilus-dropbox on both my computers, but have never removed it is possible there are some shared dependencies that were removed with dropbox.

    Re: Issues after failed install of DropBox

    I think you missing the point

    I attempt to install drop box and it failed. Which left me with some broken issues. I had to fix the broken package. Which i have but I had lost Software Center and gedit. I cant understand how I lost those and why would they be removed?

    Code:
    cat /etc/sources.list
    cat: /etc/sources.list: No such file or directory
    I am sorry, made a typo there. should be :
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    Please run the sudo apt-get update once more, and run sudo apt-get upgrade after, and please post the output.

    If you are using the regular ubuntu flavor, please run :
    Code:
    apt-cache policy ubuntu-desktop

    See the above post . The method used to fix the broken packages may account for the missing packages .
