Cinnamon & Nemo removed with bluetooth software manager

Postby Pierce Randall on Sun Feb 10, 2013 10:22 am

I just did a fresh install of Linux Mint 14 Nadia (Cinnamon, 64 bit, with codecs). I was trying to clean out stuff that I never use, and I started removing some of the Bluetooth programs with Software Manager. (I don't remember exactly which ones, anymore, but see below for clues.)

About 5 minutes later, I noticed that the icons were missing on my taskbar. I thought, "Maybe this will go away when I restart." So I did. After restarting, I got a black screen with only my mouse cursor busy. Nemo + Cinnamon didn't load, apparently.

I went into terminal, and entered

Code: Select all
cat /var/log/apt/history.log


to see what might have went wrong.

I scrolled down to the period in which I was removing Bluetooth files, and I saw

Code: Select all
Start-Date: 2013-02-10  08:48:52
Remove: cinnamon:amd64 (1.6.7+nadia), nemo:amd64 (1.1.2+nadia), nemo-share:amd64 (1.0.0+nadia), nemo-fileroller:amd64 (1.0.0+nadia), gnome-bluetooth:amd64 (3.6.0-0ubuntu1), gnome-user-share:amd64 (3.0.4-0ubuntu1), nemo-dropbox:amd64 (1.0.1+nadia)
End-Date: 2013-02-10  08:48:54


Hmmmm....

So I reinstalled Cinnamon/Nemo with

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --reinstall mint-meta-core mint-meta-cinnamon


and now everything works again. I had to reinstall Dropbox as well.

Mysterious!
