No - ignore that script. I replaced python with echo to report some information about your system based on a hunch I had that you might have multiple python versions installed. You don't, so it's null and void now.

What version of Mint are you running?

I am running mint 18 cinnamon. Tried to install 18.2 xfce but install crashed for some reason. If I can find some time I will try again.

Okay, I'm running 18.1,2,3 Cinnamon and no problems, so it's not that. If you have auto-login enabled, try disabling that and see if it makes a difference.

Just giving an update. I installed XFCE and still have this problem. It crashes with real time 0. In syslog I get a seg fault in the nvidia driver at this time.
Software Manger does this also, same failure. Not an operating system problem. Thanks for reading.

gemk65,

Paste this in the terminal in one fell swoop, press enter if necessary and paste back the result.

Code: Select all

LOCATIONS=(
"/usr/share/gufw/gufw/gufw.py"
"/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gufw/gufw.py"
"/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/gufw/gufw.py"
"/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gufw/gufw.py"
"/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/gufw/gufw.py"
)
for ((i = 0; i < ${#LOCATIONS[@]}; i++)); do  if [[ -e "${LOCATIONS[${i}]}" ]]; then echo  ${LOCATIONS[${i}]} $1; fi; done

I had the very same problem as gemk65. I fixed my problem by running the nouveau driver for my video card. I hope you can find a solution so I can run the Nvidia driver for my card.
