Removing mintupdate-debian disables sources GUI [SOLVED]

Postby Brian49 on Sun Jul 22, 2012 5:59 am

I thought I would remove the package mintupdate-debian, since I never use it. Synaptic gives no warning of dependencies. However, after removing it, the software sources GUI (software-properties-gtk) will not run. This looks like a glitch - can anyone shed any light on it, please? Many thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It seems like your etc/lsb-release file is corrupt. For LMDE it should look like this:

Code: Select all
DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint
DISTRIB_RELEASE=1
DISTRIB_CODENAME=debian
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint Debian Edition"


If it don't work try it with a Debian entry.

Testing:

Code: Select all
DISTRIB_ID=Debian
DISTRIB_RELEASE=testing
DISTRIB_CODENAME=wheezy
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Debian GNU/Linux testing (wheezy)"


Sid:

Code: Select all
DISTRIB_ID=Debian
DISTRIB_RELEASE=unstable
DISTRIB_CODENAME=sid
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Debian GNU/Linux unstable (sid)"
I believe in everything, except humans.

Thanks very much for responding. Changing to the Sid entries did the trick.
