pacman-manager not launching from menu
« on: 17. October 2013, 00:54:27 »
Hello,

I'm not sure if I should put this here or in the pamac forum. Anyway, I'm using the LXDE version of Manjaro. I'm also not sure just when this broke, but I cannot launch pamac-manager from the 'System Tools > Add/Remove Software' menu item. If I launch it from a terminal, it launches okay, I get the root authentication window. I checked the menu item settings in the 'Main Menu Editor', they all seem to be correct. I even changed the Command to "/usr/bin/pamac-manager" and it still doesn't work. I also checked the '/usr/share/applications/pamac-manager.desktop' file. It also looked okay, and I also changed the Exec line to '/usr/bin/pamac-manager'. The .desktop file has perms of 644, and the /usr/bin/pamac-manager file has perms of 755. So, I've plum run out of ideas. Oh, and when I start it from a terminal I get no errors at all.

Ideas?

this error is known and will be fixed in the next version of pamac 0.9. if you want to test it, it is already in the unstable repository.
otherwise you have to wait for a week or two until pamac 0.9 hits the stable repositories...

you can read about it here: http://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=7603.0

another bug is, that you are not able to remove software with pamac anymore. this bug will get fixed as well with the 0.9 version.
