Postby elbeto on Sun Feb 22, 2009 11:31 pm

I don't know what's the reason but Gnome-do stopped working.

I reinstalled it and it's listed in the programs but when I'm lauching it is doing nothing.

There are hidden config files in home for gnome-do
I think it's in these the problem lies
Uninstall it again - select full uninstall
If there are nay files left over delete them (or move them into a separate folder)
Then install again

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Husse,

I tried that and it didn't work. Any other ideas? I'm sure that some library is missing or something like that but I don't know which one.

Try to run this command in the terminal:
Code: Select all
whereis gnome-do

Then purge gnome-do:
Code: Select all
apt-get --purge remove gnome-do

Now make sure that all the directories listed by the first command above have been removed. Also, you might want to make sure that every single file created by Gnome-Do in your home directory* has been removed. Then try to reinstall gnome-do afterwards.

*: The only relevant files I can find inside my home directory is under /home/username/.config/gnome-do.
