Mintinstall help please..

Postby joemartin » Sat Apr 11, 2009 4:30 am

Mintinstall is not working all of a sudden...error message below.....

The data used by mintInstall is corrupted or out of date. Click on refresh to fix the problem : no element found: line 1, column 0

It says click on refresh but I can't get to refresh because the loading hourglass like Linux figure is continuous.

any ideas? Thanks.

This is because the mintInstall folder in your home has been corrupted
Enable "View hidden Files" in the file browser
Navigate to /home/your_name/.linuxmint
Delete the mintInstall folder
Unfortunately this makes it download from the beginning again, but it's unavoidable
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
