View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing query

November 30th, 2010, 06:14 AM
When i use the software center to install some programs it Ubuntu semi-hangs after entering in the authentication password.
The cell for the pw disappears but the authentication box stays. And it doesn't install the software. Clicking the x does nothing. I say semi-hang because i can use other software while this is happening but not the software center. After about 5 mins the auth box goes and i can try again.

Does this happen when you need to authenticate for other programs?

For example, if you type into a terminal:

gksudo gedit
