    Muon Software Manager will not open.

    Hello,

    i got Kubuntu like a week ago and need some advice.

    Every time i klick on Moun Software Manager it crashes direcly after opening. Is this a common problem or just a setting missing?

    Thanks for reading

    Alex

    Re: Muon Software Manager will not open.

    Hi,
    I also have an error when starting Muon:

    Executable: muon-installer PID: 1682 Signal: Segmentation fault (11)

    This started tohappen after an unsuccessful installation.
    Any ideas?

    Re: Muon Software Manager will not open.

    Is this a fresh install?

    My stable systems (Kubuntu installed a while ago) I'm having no problems with Muon.

    But I installed Kubuntu on my kids linux box Thursday, and after getting all the updates, I'm having the same behavior (Muon crashing).

    Re: Muon Software Manager will not open.

    It would be helpful to add the Kubuntu/KDE/Muon versions

    If you mean an unsuccessful installation of Kubuntu, then start fresh and reinstall and ensure that it goes to completion "without error". You cannot expect anything to work properly if the operating system didn't get installed correctly.

    Re: Muon Software Manager will not open.

    Something to try

    The developer, Jonathan Thomas is blogging here: http://jontheechidna.wordpress.com/

    The experimental development packages (beta at the moment) are available: https://launchpad.net/~echidnaman/+a...t-experimental

    If the Oneiric release version Muon is crashing, you could try with the development version.


    Upgrade example

    1) adding the ppa, command line:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:echidnaman/qapt-experimental
    Code:
    [sudo] password for oneline: 
    You are about to add the following PPA to your system:
     QApt Experimental
     A place for packages for prerelease versions of QApt/Muon
     More info: https://launchpad.net/~echidnaman/+a...t-experimental
    Press [ENTER] to continue or ctrl-c to cancel adding it
    
    Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /tmp/tmp.23VqZHEPzk --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80/ --recv 25D38C4E8FB595D28F2F089611EC3F8C8067AE7D
    gpg: requesting key 8067AE7D from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
    gpg: key 8067AE7D: public key "Launchpad PPA for Jonathan Thomas" imported
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg:        imported: 1 (RSA: 1)

    2) Updating the package database:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    3) Checking the upgradeable packages:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check --human-readable
    Code:
    11 packages can be updated.
    0 updates are security updates.
    4) Upgrading
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Code:
    Reading package lists...
    Building dependency tree...
    Reading state information...
    The following packages will be upgraded:
     gstreamer0.10-qapt kde-thumbnailer-deb libmuonprivate1 libqapt-runtime
     libqapt1 muon muon-installer muon-notifier muon-updater qapt-batch
     qapt-deb-installer
    11 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    5) Testing



    Code:
    :~$ muon-installer -v
    Qt: 4.7.4
    KDE Development Platform: 4.7.4 (4.7.4)
    Muon Software Center: 1.2.80 "Daring Dalek"
    Code:
    :~$ muon -v
    Qt: 4.7.4
    KDE Development Platform: 4.7.4 (4.7.4)
    Muon Package Manager: 1.2.80 "Daring Dalek"
    Both Muons are working at here.


    Downgrade example

    The Muon upgrade is from a PPA, so there is a handy tool:

    Code:
    :~$ apt-cache show ppa-purge
    
    Description: disables a PPA and reverts to official packages
     This program disables a PPA from your Software Sources and reverts your
     system back to the official Ubuntu packages. You can use this to return your
     system to normal after testing a new version from a PPA.
    Homepage: https://launchpad.net/ppa-purge
    It can be installed with the command:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
    Manual:
    Code:
    :~$ man ppa-purge
    Code:
    NAME
        ppa-purge - disables a PPA and reverts to official packages
    
    SYNOPSIS
        ppa-purge [-h | [-d <distribution>] [-s <host>] [-p <ppaname>] <ppa:<ppaowner[/ppaname>]>]
    
    DESCRIPTION
        This script provides a bash shell script capable of automatically downgrading all packages in a given
        PPA back to the ubuntu versions.
    
        You have to run it using root privileges because of the package manager.
    
    OPTIONS
        -h   Display usage help.
    
        -p PPA name
           Name of the PPA to be reset, the default value is ppa.
    
        -s PPA host
           Address of the repository server, the default value is ppa.launchpad.net.

    Downgrading the qapt-experimental packages.

    1) PPA purge command:
    Code:
    sudo ppa-purge ppa:echidnaman/qapt-experimental
    Code:
    Updating packages lists
    PPA to be removed: echidnaman qapt-experimental

    Need to get 550 kB of archives.
    After this operation, 5,136 kB disk space will be freed.
    2) Testing

    Code:
    :~$ muon-installer -v
    Qt: 4.7.4
    KDE Development Platform: 4.7.4 (4.7.4)
    Muon Software Center: 1.2.1 "Caustic Carrionite"
    Code:
    :~$ muon -v
    Qt: 4.7.4
    KDE Development Platform: 4.7.4 (4.7.4)
    Muon Package Manager: 1.2.1 "Caustic Carrionite"
    The Muons are back to the Oneiric release version - and are working at here.

    Re: Muon Software Manager will not open.

    HI
    For possibly other situations.

    Running the alpha of Precise Rekonq wanted to install the flash driver, but it couldn't.

    When i tried to install something from Muon it said there was another instance of a package manager running. And that happened after restarts.

    After a while I did dpkg-a in terminal, it showed the installer for flash trying to run, asked if I wanted to install flash, I said so and it installed and did a LOT of dpkging! and then Muon ran ok.

    I might have looked in processes, but didn't think about it.

    However, this is the beta of Precise so one expects stuff like this, but, it might be an idea for people that the above fix does not work for to check in processes and see what is going on.
