failed to execute child process ubiquity

Postby squigglethecow on Sun Nov 09, 2008 8:24 pm

I can boot the live CD into mint. Everything works great (using it now).

However, when I double click the 'install' on the desktop I get an error that reads:

failed to execute child process ''ubiquity'' (input/output error)

I'm a very new linux user and haven't a clue what this means. I google searched it and found a few mentions of it on the Ubuntu forms - but havent found anything helpful.

Searching these forums there is no mention of the error (that the search pulls up).

Anyone seen this before? Any suggestions?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

After re-booting the computer this error went away, install went fine.

If anyone else has this issue: just re-start your computer
