gnome-schedule doesn't work after updates

Running Xubuntu 10.10, and yesterday I ran the update manager to install numerous updates (not upgrade to 11.4) and suddenly gnome-schedule doesn't work. When attempting to start it a window flashes on the screen and disappears, the process shows as running (as well as a process "" maybe a Python update responsible?) but no window on-screen.
I tried uninstall/reinstall to check if something in the original install had been corrupted or changed by the update process or an update to gnome-schedule was possibly available, but still experiencing the same issue. I am in the process of re-creating this on another machine but the updates are just now downloading. I will post an update here once it's done.

Why do I need to use a GUI rather than just doing it in terminal? Here's the reason:

The main purpose of this computer is to be a music service for a senior center. I've loaded the harddrive with lots of mp3's I've downsampled, compressed and normalized for mono playback. I run a playlist in audacious in shuffle mode. The crontabs start audacious and the playlist at the opening hour and shuts down audacious at the end of the day for unattended playback (many times myself, or the one other person with access to the machine are not available to manually start or stop the music). Also the cron jobs need to be edited at various times to account for holidays or staying open for cooling-center duties past normal closing time, so they need to be adjusted from time to time. I am also probably going to be leaving the job in the hands of others who are not as linux savvy as I am (still though I consider myself a bit of a noob) who will need a GUI to edit the cron jobs once I'm gone. I've even set it up to be more Windows friendly for them (single workspace and bottom panel laid out like Windows).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

hujer, did what you suggested and here is the result:

/usr/share/ghome-schedule/ 158: DeprecationWarning:Use the new widget gtk.Tooltip
tip = gtk.Tooltips ()
/usr/share/ghome-schedule/ 159: DeprecationWarning:Use the new widget gtk.Tooltip
tip.enable ()

hope this will give folks more info in order to help with my problem.

Smile Gnome-schedule reinstall

edmenje, long time since you had a reply. I am new on this forum. I had your problem recently - reinstall didn't work for me either, but deleting all the gnome-schedule files/folders and then re-installing did!

I then had another problem where gnome schedule works fine - but templates do not (no response to the template button). Haven't had any luck so far solving this one.

Anyone know of this latter problem?
