software-sources-gtk error

Postby lindy on Mon Mar 04, 2013 5:25 pm

I had the bright idea of adding the Wine ppa to my list of sources, but when I've tried to open software sources it immediately crashes. So I tried running software-sources-gtk from the cli and I get the following:
Code: Select all
lindy@contraption ~ $ software-properties-gtk

** (software-properties-gtk:2172): WARNING **: Couldn't register with accessibility bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Traceback (most recent call last):

aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template

I've also tried sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa , but I get an identical traceback... Anybody have an idea of what's going on here?
