failed to execute child process ubiquity

Postby squigglethecow » Sun Nov 09, 2008 8:24 pm

I can boot the live CD into mint. Everything works great (using it now).

However, when I double click the 'install' on the desktop I get an error that reads:

failed to execute child process ''ubiquity'' (input/output error)

I'm a very new linux user and haven't a clue what this means. I google searched it and found a few mentions of it on the Ubuntu forms - but havent found anything helpful.

Searching these forums there is no mention of the error (that the search pulls up).

Anyone seen this before? Any suggestions?

After re-booting the computer this error went away, install went fine.

If anyone else has this issue: just re-start your computer
