Muon Software Center crashes on fresh Kubuntu
I’ve just installed a fresh 64-bit Kubuntu (11.10) and then wanted to use the packet manager/software center, which now is Muon by default, to add all the stuff I need.
Muon repeatedly crashed with a Segfault when I tried to launch it. Thankfully this problem had been around for some time, so it didn’t took me too long to find a solution which worked for me:
In this thread on ubuntuforums.org there are several fixes suggested of which this one worked for me (disabling proprietary drivers didn’t help), which simply requires to uncomment two entries in ‚
/etc/apt/sources.list‚ and invoke an ‚
apt-get update‚ afterwards. The respective entries are:
