View Full Version : [ubuntu] cairo-dock problem

April 16th, 2009, 09:29 AM
i think i messed up, cairo-dock was working until i switched it to the ubuntu theme now it won't load when i alt-f2 it.

ubuntu 8.10 intrepid.

please excuse the noobishness.

got this by running in terminal.

What repository did you use to install this?

April 16th, 2009, 09:47 AM
http://repository.cairo-dock.org/ubuntu intrepid cairo-dock

i added this to the list, then further googling showed that i could get it thru the synaptic packagemanager so i did it that way.

on hindsight i probably should have removed that line from the list before updating.

how do i undo the mess i have made?


i am removing that line and uninstalling all cairo-dock by sudo apt-get autoremove cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins

i will then try to install thru synaptic


it works now lol. sorry for posting, i've only had a few days with ubuntu.

Np - in the future you can view a list of packages that were installed/updated in Syanptic so you can uninstall them in the event there's a problem and revert back to your original state.

rather than make a new thread i have an issue with the applets. i don't have any and i am unsure how to get any. pic related

also: i noticed in synaptic that my cairo-sock-plug-ins is version but my cairo-dock is version with as an available update but the update fails with this error:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/cairo-dock_1.6.3.1_all.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/share/cairo-dock/icon-mouse.png', which is also in package cairo-dock-data
