Software Manager crashes with segmentation fault

Post by Kupfer »

Hi,

I'm currently setting up LMDE 64bit on an Asus EeePC 1005PE and the Software Center (MintInstall) keeps crashing with segmentation fault.

This happens usually after I install a package: Sometimes after the package is installed and I'm navigating back to the Software List to continue browsing, other times right after it installs the package, meaning the moment the software installation is finished the Software Center window collapses. This has no effect on the installed package, it works just fine.

I filed a bug report too, just in case:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/695496

Any insight regarding the problem would be appreciated. Thanks!


Here is the output of the terminal:

I've solved with this command:

Code: Select all

ln ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4 ~/.gtkrc-2.0
I hope to be helpful :)

I've just installed Linux Mint 12 KDE and the Software Manager is crashing, but not showing any error message. I tried the code above, but ".gtkrc-2.0-kde4" doesn't exist on my system. Is there an update I should apply for the software manager? Has this been fixed by anyone?
