MCE installer problem
« on: May 12, 2007, 09:13:03 pm »
Hi
Totally new to linux!
I have ubuntu 6.1 installed and updated ok but when i go to run the installer it comes up with the message "only one software management tool is allowed to run at the same time" but i cant see how to tell what else is running and how to turn it off?

Make sure there are not any updated ready to be installed (usually at the top right on the screen) and if all else fails hit ctrl+alt+backspace and reload your X session. Open the package Manager from the Administration menu and see if that runs. If it does close it and run the install again.
