View Full Version : Where are screenshots in Software (Centre)?

January 31st, 2019, 11:18 PM

Why I have no screenshot for most software in Software (Centre)?

Using Xubuntu 18.04.1. Even most known software, like Inkscape or Blender. I search or navigate, open the info page and... no screenshot. Only message "no screenshot provided".
I can put a sample screenshot here, but it is in my language (PT-BR).

I used Linux Mint before this Xubuntu install, and had images for almost all software.

It is a bug with my install?

Try this:

killall gnome-software
This kills the software running within the Software Center.

Next, you need to remove the gnome file software location “~/.local/share/gnome-software.” Do this by entering the following:

sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/gnome-software

If this seems scary, or you are afraid it will ruin your installation, you can opt to avoid deletion by moving it to another location. The Software Center will work fine either way.

I tried. No changes.

I wonder if those screenshots are visible to others, if its just issue with my system.

Take a look (my language is pt-br):
