Cinnamon desklet settings do not open

Postby Xevil on Fri May 17, 2013 11:17 am

Hey, I installed cinnamon 1.8 but activating desklets isn't possible because the desklet page isn't working, it is just blank.
I got this error in a terminal
Code: Select all
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.py", line 88, in side_view_nav
    sidePage.build(self.advanced_mode)
  File "/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/bin/ExtensionCore.py", line 143, in build
    self.instanceButton.set_tooltip_text(_("Some %s can be added multiple times.\nUse this to add another instance. Use panel edit mode to remove a single instance.") % (self.pl_noun))
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 4: ordinal not in range(128)


May you help me ? ;)

I have a similar issue since installing Mint 15 RC.
Can't install desklets or applets.
Opening the respective settings window from the settings menu shows a blank window, opening it from the panel gives me an entry in the task-switcher in the panel, but no window at all.

Interestingly it works from a live session booting from usb drive.
I wonder if it might be due to a language setting? (german for me)

Might be possible, it's german for me, too.
Edit: Yes that's it, changed language back to English, no it works. :)

Ah, that's good to know.
Now the only remaining problem for me is that Mint 15 RC refuses to boot more than 3 times... :(

Reporting in with the same problem. Switching to English helps for now, but I could do with a fix.
