Re: Gdebi is frozen

Can you try gdebi-gtk instead of gdebi?

Re: How to completely remove XFCE

OK maybe I am asking a dumb question but there is no such thing so...

why remove the XFCE? Surely you cannot be using a harddrive so small that it needs removing?

Re: Gdebi is frozen

And if all else fails.. kill it with the terminal, this command:

Code: Select all

killall -9 gdebi

Next time start it through the terminal to see if you get error messages.



Stevo there is a typo in your command, gedebi = gdebi. :)
