ubuntu 10.04 super powers

Asked by Johny George on 2010-05-26

i use ubuntu 10.04.its working quite normally.i installed ubuntu tweak and compiz fusion etc.For a few days i didn't have any problem.but after some time in the case of ubuntu tweak,i am unable to press the 'unlock' button.its as if its freezed or something.nothing will happen.in the case of compiz fusion i am unable to change its settings and change the effects.the software center application which is one of the default applications, i am unable to install a thing.the install button there is also freezed.like wise i think my super powers have gone automatically.but when i checked the users and admin settings i still have the super powers and i am the administrator.so i deleted that user and made an another user.For a few days it worked fine.But after some time the same problem became happening again.What is the solution to it?I think its a bug.

Ubuntutweak is an unofficial package so is NOT supported here.

We can however get your packages unstuck. I suggest you remove ubuntutweak as it is untested by Canonical techs and may cause issues (as you have seen). There are plenty of configuration GUIs all through the OS which are OFFICIAL and won't break your system.

Can you please give the output of:

sudo apt-get -f install; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade

Thanks

Should be ok.
