Software manager broken... [Solved]

Post by harshad1 »

I can't get mintinstall to launch.

When I run it from the terminal this is what I get:

Code: Select all

mintinstall
/usr/share/themes/Felicia/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:79: Murrine configuration option "gradients" is no longer supported and will be ignored.
add_categories took 1.269 ms
build_matched_packages took 0.215 ms
add_packages took 1783.288 ms
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py", line 1364, in <module>
    Application()	
  File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py", line 39, in wrapper
    res = func(*arg)
  File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py", line 364, in __init__
    self.add_reviews()
  File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py", line 39, in wrapper
    res = func(*arg)
  File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py", line 1041, in add_reviews
    review = Review(elements[0], float(elements[1]), elements[2], elements[3], elements[4])	
ValueError: invalid literal for float(): 127603;094
Reinstall via synaptic did not help

Brilliant, thank you, in my case, there were 2 folders, one with mintinstall and the other with mintInstall with an "I" uppercase!!! deleted both and restart to see mintinstall created

Thank you so much for this trick! :idea: :P
