    synaptic / ubuntu software centre

    Hello everybody

    synaptic simply does not launch any longer. I have not got any idea why. And it has now become impossible to remove any software I no longer need (like audacity)
    Normally, after clicking on 'remove' ubuntu would ask for my password.... Well not anymore....

    what the hell is going on?

    Hi

    Open a terminal and type
    Code:
    software-center
    You should then get some debugging output to the terminal window.

    Copy and paste the output from the terminal window into your next post between code tags.

    Kind regards

    Hi

    No traceback reported from running software-center.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall software-center
    Try reinstalling it from the command line and if that does not fix it, try renaming your cache to a different name.

    Code:
    mv ~/.cache/software-center{,.old}
    After both the above commands, restart software-center and see if it works.

    Kind regards

    Are you connected to the Internet on that machine ?

    Code:
    root@christophe-TPS01:/home/christophe# mv ~/.cache/software-center{,.old}
    mv: cannot stat `/root/.cache/software-center': No such file or directory
    root@christophe-TPS01:/home/christophe#
    You're running under root ? I wanted you to run that command under you own user.

    Code:
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew % ls -ld ~/.cache/software-center && echo $USER
    drwxrwxr-x 8 matthew matthew 4096 Jun 13 18:20 /home/matthew/.cache/software-center/
    matthew

    Re: synaptic / ubuntu software centre

    Hi

    I thought i'd better ask about the Internet connection; you never know.

    Can you post the output of these commands...

    Code:
    cat /etc/lsb-release
    echo $DESKTOP_SESSION
    grep "^[^#]" /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*} 
    dpkg -l software-center
    Linux is case sensitive so uppercase where i have written it above.

    Kind regards
