adept package manager will not start


Hello!

Well...

I have kubuntu installed on a test box.

After looking around a bit, I concluded that 'Adept package manager' is the interface where one would go to install packages.

Problem is...

when I click on it in 'Applications>system>package manager (Adept),

It never starts!

Just a bouncing icon that eventually quits and nothing happens after that!

Any ideas?

I already ran the 'Adept Updater' thinking that that could be the issue but still nothing!

One thing to note is: you can only have once instance of the updater running. i.e. you cannot do a apt-get on the command line and also use synaptic at the same time --- although you should see an error if you try.

You could try making sure your sources are correct. Type, $ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
make sure the sources read the following - if you are on 5.10 (breezy badger)

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-updates main restricted
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-updates main restricted
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy universe
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy universe
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security main restricted
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security universe
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security universe
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-backports main restricted universe multiverse

Save the file and type: $ sudo apt-get update
then try run the package program again - if it does not work still, try and do a apt-get install... a random program can be '3ddesktop' > it is a cool program anyway

$ sudo apt-get install 3ddesktop
