Mint Install Software Manager Does Not Work At All

Postby Kold Foot » Wed Jun 17, 2009 9:44 am

I reloaded Mint 5 Elyssa on to a little older computer I have and when finished updating it I went to start looking for additional software and when I clicked on the Software Manager (Mint Install) button - Nothing Happens At All. Anyone have any Ideas?

I found a solution. I went to synaptic package manager and found mintinstall and marked it for upgrade (there was not reinstall option) and that fixed my problem.

Hello,

I had the same problem recently. Running it from menu did not work. When I typed in console 'mintinstall' I received this error

Code: Select all

/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/frontend.py:634: GtkWarning: gtk_toolbar_set_icon_size: assertion `icon_size != GTK_ICON_SIZE_INVALID' failed
  wTree = gtk.glade.XML(gladefile, "main_window")
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/frontend.py:634: GtkWarning: gtk_scrolled_window_add(): cannot add non scrollable widget use gtk_scrolled_window_add_with_viewport() instead
  wTree = gtk.glade.XML(gladefile, "main_window")


Few ours later everything came back to normal.
