having trouble with Adept, i was trying to install google earth, i have the Icon but it wont launch and now i get this message
Another process is using the packaging system database (probably some other Adept application or apt-get or aptitude).
Would you like to attempt to resolve this problem? No will enter read-only mode and Cancel to quit and resolve this issue yourself.
but i am to new at linux to know how to shut it down, like a window tadk manager (end task) or find whats using it.
any assistance would be great
