View Full Version : [ubuntu] "Add/Remove Applications" menu is not working

March 17th, 2009, 03:55 PM
It started with RAR and WINE, as I told in a previous post.

Now I realize that the issue occurs with many applications.

The issue: after I install the applications with the "Add/Remove Applications" menu, I receive a message telling the new applications were installed perfectly. But when I try to run these new applications nothing happens. I mean, it's like there was no installation. Many files are copied to my hard drive in many folders, but the applications don't run... Simple as that.

Not all applications present this issue when installed with the "Add/Remove Applications" menu.

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 and this is up to date according to my "Update Manager".

I need a solution FAST.

Please help.

Exactly how are you trying to run these applications?
