Easyubuntu returns error on launch and stops

Asked by koepi

When I launch EasyUbuntu in terminal (sudo easyubuntu) I recieve following error:

Unable to determine desktop environment, falling back to gksudo
python: can't open file './easyubuntu.in': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I have installed easyUbuntu with following command in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install easyubuntu

Thanks!

I'm seeing the same thing, it seems to be a problem with using 'push' within a script. I changed the line 'push /usr/lib/easyubuntu > /dev/null 2>&1' to 'cd /usr/lib/easyubuntu > /dev/null 2>&1' and then the script was able to continue. AFAIK, 'push' is an internal ' bash command and is not available if the script runs with '!#/bin/sh' at the top.

Where can I find this script that you are talking about?! I opened easyubuntu.in and no such line exists.

When you run the dpkg without sudo it tells you you must be in superuser mode. So how would you not run with sudo?

run easyubuntu like this

DESKTOP_SESSION=gnome easyubuntu

and it will ask for a password when it wants it.

Can you help with this problem?
