Mint-Kde Configuration error

Post by owen1978 » Thu Sep 16, 2010 1:40 pm

Keep getting the error with the mint-configuration-kde.
What I did when i first installed mint kde and uninstalled programs which I didn't want
i might have uninstalled something that i was not supposed to.

The system is stable apart from the above mentioned error below is what
i got when i ran a mint update

Processing triggers for libc-bin ...
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
Processing triggers for menu ...

Usually if your removal of an application in Mint is going to break something, you'll get a warning when you go to remove it. Do you recall such a message?

I believe if you remove packages that are in Mint-Meta-KDE, bad things can happen. It's not like installing KDE from scratch, apparently. Though I have not tried it, what happens if you try:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install mint-meta-kde
Short of that, you may just want to re-install...

Or add the Quassel Irc app back. Personally, I want to get rid of it and leave it gone. I wonder if anyone can tell us how to do that without getting this error.

do a :

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /usr/share/kde4/apps/quassel/
This will make the directory it wants, and it will re-create the file it wants, and thus remove the error.

You may also need to do a

Code: Select all

sudo touch networks.ini
This will create a empty file in the directory., but I am think dpkg is trying to create it any way, so probably don't need this, but just in case.

Ok I have fixed this bug (me being lazy in a place or two) in the postinst file.
a temp fix is to edit this file:
/var/lib/dpkg/info/mint-configuration-kde.postinst
and edit out the copy for quassel file.

Cheers
