I'm running Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon x64 and, for whatever reason, the Software Manager just stopped working. Clicking the icon in the Menu used to work, but no longer. Now, when I click it and enter the password, nothing happens.
When I enter the command manually in Terminal, it just goes back to prompt:
username@HomeOffice-LinuxMint:~$ gksu mintinstall
In debug mode, it looks like this, but still goes back to prompt:
username@HomeOffice-LinuxMint:~$ gksu mintinstall -d
No ask_pass set, using default!
brute force GNOME_SUDO_PASS ended...
Yeah, we're in...
When I enter "su" seperately from the "mintinstall" command, it works normally:
HomeOffice-LinuxMint username # mintinstall
add_categories took 20.486 ms
build_matched_packages took 0.161 ms
add_packages took 3418.884 ms
add_reviews took 1144.638 ms
__init__ took 5221.818 ms
show_category took 120.985 ms
The gksu part always works. The password prompt always pops up, but mintinstall doesn't run. It only runs if the "su" command is issued seperately. Can anyone tell me why this stopped working from the Menu?
