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 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:

deb oneiric partner
deb-src oneiric partner

Once again. Your solution worked for me, following a fresh install of Kubuntu on a laptop at work.
