View Full Version : [ubuntu] GUI tools stopped working.

January 16th, 2011, 09:30 PM

Plucky suggested I start a new thread (see 10359757).

If I go System > Administration > Update Manager, nothing happens. Same goes for Applications > Ubuntu Software Centre. With the latter, it 'thinks about it' for a few seconds (ie. the cursor turns into the 'working' cursor), but then nothing happens.

The same thing happens if I try clicking a .deb file (working cursor, then nothing).

From the command line, apt-get update/ugrade both work (see thread 10359757), it's just the GUI version of update mgr & U.S.C. that don't.

Please read thread 10359757 first. I did do some updates to my machine which may have caused this problem.

Can anyone help me with this? Ubuntu software centre has also stopped working, nor does clicking on a .deb file do anything.

Thanks in advance.
