If the problem only occurred once rebooting the computer may help. –  Dennis Jaheruddin Jan 7 '13 at 13:03
    
Thanks but I observed that there was some libraries that went missing after some updates which I have to add on separately.Now its working fine. –  user12448 Jan 11 '13 at 19:23
    
Could you please briefly describe how you did it and accept that as an answer? This may help others who encounter the same problem. –  Dennis Jaheruddin Jan 13 '13 at 11:54
    
Honestly I am not sure of how it was fixed.I took help of my friend.All I got was that some libraries related to locale were missing after some updates.They were restored again manually.I am sorry that I don't remember the exact command used. –  user12448 Jan 14 '13 at 13:17
