View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Distribution Update

July 25th, 2008, 12:00 PM
Update manager keeps displaying a Distribution Update for Gimp: libgtk1.2 but it is always "grayed out" making it non-selectable for me. I do have and use Gimp. Any ideas on why the update is listed but not really available?

I'm not seeing that one.

It could be that they put it in for download and then realized something was wrong with it, or they don't have some dependency quite ready yet. I've seen that happen before.

This same file has been sitting in my update manager for quite a while now, as well.

* Triger another rebuild so that hppa gets to do the libglib1.2 as well.

Version 1.2.10-18.1build1:

* Rebuild for libglib1.2 -> libglib1.2ldbl transistion.

Version 1.2.10-18.1:

* 0-day NMU, authorized by one of the package uploaders (Marc
* High-urgency upload for RC bugfix.
* Replace use of deprecated ${Source-Version} substvar with
${source:Version} or ${binary:Version} according to the use, making
the package installable in the face of binNMUs. Closes: #433253.

Hi guys,

I had the same problem too, but I think I fixed it after running 'sudo apt-get install libgtk1.2'. So far I have managed to remove it from the update list and no problems with the rest of the software yet.

Hope this helps!

Yes, that's what i did also. It's fixed. I should have marked it solved back then.

I had the same problem with "ubuntu-desktop" on 9.10 beta. The solution described here worked too. Thanks.
