Startup-manager problem

Postby Borsook » Tue Feb 17, 2009 4:13 am

I've just did a install of Mint 6 and installed all the recommended updates. But it appears that one of them breaks Startup- manager. Since I've installed 200+ of them it is hard to say which one was it... but maybe anyone knows?

Try to look at startup manager's dependency list in Synaptic. That might give you some clue. This one-liner gives you a list of packages that startup manager depends on:

Code: Select all

apt-cache show startupmanager | grep -i depends

What exactly do you mean when you say that startup-manager is broken?

I've found, in my installation at least, that startup manager never loads when I select it from Menu -> Administration -> StartUp-Manager. However, it works just fine when I go to Menu -> Control Center and then select StartUp Manager.

I mean that I've installed it before updating and it worked fine, but after the updates it displays sort of a empty window, with only a disfunctional selection of operating systems, other options are gone.
