View Full Version : [ubuntu] StartupManager failing to launch

December 30th, 2010, 10:38 PM
Does anyone know of some things I can check to find the root cause behind this error? I pulled startupmanager via apt-get, and I get an error when I try to launch the startupmanager executable from a terminal in Gnome.

Did you try it via the menu, I guess "System -> Administration"?!
