[SOLVED] Latest update-'Software Install' menu not available

Post by SirLurkalot » 2015/12/15 16:24:17

After updating to 7.2, the replacement System Tools/Software Install menu isn't available.

It opens a tab in the toolbar but is accompanied by a delayed symbol.... See attachment

After about 20 seconds it disappears again. (Line added later)

Any pointers appreciated.

Thanks

As an after thought, should it be opening the 'Administrator Password' dialog, in the
same way as the System Log option does ?

Use the new application installer (/usr/bin/gnome-software).

In answer to your earlier questions, it's the same in non-classic.

There is no such file in /usr/bin and I can't discover how to do this from Google so what do I actually have to do to get this menu item working please?

Thanks

Sorry, I removed my questions because I finally realized you were using some other software.

Code: Select all

yum install gnome-software
should solve the problem.

Yes thanks. I've now got the Application Installer and got the Software tools I wanted.

Many thanks for the help.

I did run "sudo yum install gnome-software" and it did install properly.

But my

Applications --> System Tools --> Settings

menu selection is still not working. It spins the propeller for 15 or so seconds and then gives up.

However, when I run that as root, it does work. It doesn't work if I run it as a regular user.

Perhaps that is related to the boot up error message I get with this patch? "ioremap command failed"

Use the Application Installer or the Software Update tool.

I don't see the Software Update tool anymore under the "Applications --> System Tools --> Settings" sub-menu. That is a definite change from the previous OS version.

I have been relying on yum to get my applications patches, but I do appreciate running that Software Update tool as well, as I believe that was the only way I get a new OS patch.

If you run #yum install gnome-software it will install Applications/System Tools/Application Installer

If you run that... under System/Other... you will find the old Software and Software Update tools
