View Full Version : [ubuntu] Programs closing automatically?

March 2nd, 2011, 04:25 AM
I've just started using Ubuntu (from Win7) and so far it's been great... but rather unusable.

My problem is that my programs are crashing automatically. I don't get an error message of any type, they just vanish. They seem to crash when I try to click on something (anything) -- for example, I was trying to import music into Rhythmbox just now. I got as far as choosing my folder for the program to extract the songs from, but as soon as I clicked "Open," it closed.

This problem seems to occur in almost any program, except the internet. I haven't had any issues with that yet (using Chrome.)

Any ideas?

Thanks. It looked like that worked, but I'm not going to mark this as solved yet until I'm totally sure.
