Bug Description

I'm testing the Beta 2 alternate candidate - 20110919-i386.

Not sure if this is a d-i problem or something to do with gtk but look at posts #16 thru 19 in bug 835961. The screenshots in #17 and 18 pretty much tell the story.

To summarize, after installation software sources UI can't be viewed from the update manager, and viewing it from synaptic displays a "list" as shown in post #17 of bug 835961.

This is still true of the 20110920.1-i386 alternate image.

Could you please run apport-collect 854244 now that the bug has been filed about software-properties-gtk? Thanks in advance.

Confirmed, software-properties is not installed when using alternate ISO, I'll have a look at it.

Thanks Julien. I'll be tied up for a couple of hours with other testing.

As you note this only occurs with alternate installs, installations from live iso's seem to be fine.

Do you still need the apport-collect info?

No thanks it's ok Lance, I have enough information to work on this :)

Julien Lavergne (gilir) wrote :

I still don't know why it's working on live ISO, and not alternate. I commited a fix, it should be fixed after the beta2.
In the meantime, you can install the package software-properties-gtk to fix manually the problem.

I'm tired and my mind is choking on how to get this included in the release notes, but I suppose it should be in the Beta 2 release notes.

Just testing 20110920.2-i386 and this is fixed. Looks great, many thanks.

I'll leave it up to Julien to change the status, many thanks again.
