Gnome installation

Postby Joeasaurus on Thu Mar 26, 2009 1:52 pm

Hi, not sure if it should go in this section but im having trouble installing gnome.
I have Mint 6 Felicia installed and I opened up the terminal and typed "sudo apt-get install gnome"
all was fine untill the last section of the install when I get this error:

Unpacking gnome-themes-extras (from .../gnome-themes-extras_2.22.0-0ubuntu1_all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/gnome-themes-extras_2.22.0-0ubuntu1_all.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/icons/Gion/16x16/actions/bookmark-new.png', which is also in package mint-artwork-gnome
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/gnome-themes-extras_2.22.0-0ubuntu1_all.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Has anyone else come across this problem before?
Any help would be appreciated as this is my third attempt after two re-installs of the whole O/S

Thanks :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The "gnome-themes-extras" package is a known issue, so you can rest easy.

http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_felicia.php

"gnome-themes-extra conflicts with mint-artwork-gnome

The upstream package gnome-themes-extra conflicts with mint-artwork-gnome. Both packages provide the Gion icon set. If you want to install the icon sets contained in gnome-themes-extra you need to install them manually."

Phewww!!
hehe

Thanks for the info guys,

I have another question/problem though --
ive tried installing the .deb package manually and i get the same error
the big issue is the dependency list.
I'm quite happy without the gnome-themes-extras icons or w.e but it wont let me install anything untill i fix that dependency
which i cant because of the error
Ive tried apt-get -f install
but that returns the error too :S

I think you have to remove the broken package and then an installation should work.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get --purge remove PACKAGENAME


Or start synaptic and try it from there
