While messing around with Ubuntu 11.04, I decided to give Gnome 3 a try. It failed, and a bunch of stuff stopped working. So I uninstalled it. After that mess I couldn’t install any new packages. Why? Simply because the gnome-icon-theme pack was not installed correctly.
Here’s a brief of the error message:
Setting up libgtk2-ruby1.8 (0.19.3-2ubuntu1) …Setting up libgtk2-ruby (0.19.3-2ubuntu1) …Setting up rbbr (0.6.0-3ubuntu1) …Errors were encountered while processing:gnome-icon-themeempathyevinceevolutionevolution-exchangegnome-control-centerSetting up gnome-icon-theme (2.31.0-0ubuntu2) …update-alternatives: error: alternative path /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/places/ubuntu-logo.svg doesn’t exist.dpkg: error processing gnome-icon-theme (–configure):
Looks like some images were not reinstalled during the rollback. Here’s a link to the resource:
Copy the all the .svg files into the /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/places/ path, run:
sudo apt-get clean all
sudo apt-get update
Then to verify everything is working correctly:
sudo apt-get install -f
Hope it helps!
