I have the same problem, but in my case I cannot install mint-artwork-gnome. It says the following (in terminal):
- Code: Select all
Unpacking mint-artwork-gnome (from .../mint-artwork-gnome_1.7_all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/mint-artwork-gnome_1.7_all.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/icons/Gion/22x22/mimetypes/application-certificate.png', which is also in package gnome-themes-extras
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
A package failed to install. Trying to recover:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Reading extended state information
Initializing package states... Done
Writing extended state information... Done
And it doesn't install anything.
Also, if I try to apply the alternate solution provided here, to start off, /etc/grub doesn't exist; inside /etc there's only "grub.d" and inside there there's only one file: "20_memtest86+".
FYI: this problem began when I was installing new gnome themes, some of them said I needed to install some engines to work. I don't remember which ones I installed since it was a while ago.
I am using linux mint felicia.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
