View Full Version : [gnome] gconftool-2 undefined symbol error

March 11th, 2010, 02:30 PM
yesterday my gnome gui locked up during startup.
there is a problem with the "gnome power manager" package.

I get a pop-up saying "The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."


"sudo apt-get remove powermgmt-base
sudo apt-get install powermgmt-base

sudo dpkg --configure -a

apt-get --reinstall install gnome-power-manager"

when trying to reinstall the gnome-power-manager package, I get the following error

gconftool-2 symbol lookup error: gconftool-2 undefined symbol gconf_schema_set_gettext_domain

any idea's? (only the terminal works)
