11.10 - How to I fix software center after installing the Linux Mint MATE desktop? - Ask Ubuntu:

'via Blog this'

I installed the MATE desktop using this manual but now i can't open my Ubuntu Software Center and can't open the settings from the update manager.
I removed mate desktop but it doesn't fix the problem, i also reinstalled the software center, software-properties-gtk and software-properties-common using:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get --purge --reinstall install software-center software-properties-common software-properties-gtk.


echo "Restoring /etc/lsb-release ..." && \
echo "DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu" > /etc/lsb-release && \
echo "DISTRIB_RELEASE=11.10" >> /etc/lsb-release && \
echo "DISTRIB_CODENAME=oneiric" >> /etc/lsb-release && \
echo "DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=Ubuntu 11.10" >> /etc/lsb-release && \
echo "Restoring /etc/*issue ..." && \
echo "Ubuntu 11.10 \\n \\l" > /etc/*issue && \
echo "Done."
lsb_release -a prints:
Distributor ID: LinuxMint Description: Linux Mint 12 Fluxbox Release: 12 Codename: lisa
and that can be corrected to keep Mint-Mate by doing this:
gksu gedit /etc/*release
and change everything in the file gedit brings up to:
Then run:
gksu gedit /etc/*issue
and change to:
Ubuntu 11.10 \n \l
Worked great for me though Mate seems a bit rough around the edges but as I am purely testing Oneric in VBox it's no matter
This is good as well
