mintdesktop 3.2.2 error, I cant fix it

Postby sunwatt on Sat Dec 04, 2010 8:51 am

I tried the solution on the forum, it didnt fix the problem.

apt update
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/mintdesktop.prerm
apt install mintdesktop

Plus I tried installing it from synaptic, same error.

Where did I go wrong?

You did nothing wrong. This is a known bug in the update path from Mint desktop 3.2.1 to 3.2.2.

The fix is here

http://blog.linuxmint.com/


Enter the commands in bold print into terminal and the update should go through.

Sorry, I did not read carefully enough. The OP had already tried the recommended fix.

Thanks for replying. Here is the terminal output after entering the code you suggested.

For some reason the 1st time I gave my password it failed, 2nd try it accepted the password. Ive done this afew times, Im not making any typos on my password.

I make lots of mistakes, but I think Im doing this right.

[SOLVED] Re: mintdesktop 3.2.2 error, I cant fix it

Postby sunwatt on Sun Dec 05, 2010 7:20 am

Thank you!

That did the trick.

Wonder why the LM10 screen when I log in? What about the LM panel? And the new icons?

I liked the debian theme.

But Im happy to have this issue behind me now, many thanks!
