When I click to open either my synaptic package manager or my add programs thingy, it makes the noise like it is opening, and sometimes I see it looks like a window shrinking down to nothing in the bottom of the screen (like when you minimize a window, only there's no minimized window). It's frustrating. Can anyone give me an idea how to fix this? I tried doing an update by using my terminal and apt-get update/upgrade - you know, however that's done. I have no idea what happened; mom mom also uses my puter and has no idea what she's doing or may have done, and since I am new I've been messing with things in Ubuntu and very well may have done it myself :-(
Teehee. I changed the ownership of my /etc/users once when I was trying to run a faq that was zipped, and it wouldn't let me. Now when I tried sudo synaptic it opened my synaptic package thing, and also said : (synaptic:25460): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_accel_label_set_accel_closure: assertion `gtk_accel_group_from_accel_closure (accel_closure) != NULL' failed
You need to make sure that your sudoers file is roots. You need, too, to make sure that you haven't updated the system with packages that break GTK. What package did you add immediately before things broke? Make sure, too, that all the files gnome needs have the right permissions.
