Is there any way you could run the software manager through the terminal to see what error(s) it outputs? Or maybe you could check dmesg with 'dmesg | tail'?

Without an error, I'm not sure exactly how to troubleshoot this.

Apparently alakarte does not work under Mint 14 and Mint 15. You can try another menu editor. I'm sure there are plenty of them.
