Software Manager Will Not Open - "Import Error"

Postby BandAid91 » Mon Oct 02, 2017 3:38 pm

Hello,

For some time I've had an issue with the Software Manager not opening after password authentication.
I have tried re-installing mintinstall however I do not believe the error that I receive when running "sudo mintinstall" is related directly to the application. At least not from what I can tell.

Error:

Code: Select all

$ sudo mintinstall
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintinstall/mintinstall.py", line 16, in <module>
    import webkit
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/webkit/__init__.py", line 21, in <module>
    import webkit
ImportError: libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I think I am just missing this RPM file but I am not familiar with how to download and install it or if I even need to. I'm not sure if I might be over-complicating the problem either.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Use SPM to add this library file.

menu
-> settings
-> synaptic package manager

enter your password.
wait for search bar to show up. (My slow computer takes 1/2 min)
enter libjavascriptcore
check one
click apply

rpm packages do not come with mint, use deb packages

however try installing the package libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-0

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-0
