I am having trouble with the Software Center in Ubuntu 12.04.

When I write Software-center in Terminal, this says :

** (software-center:3203): WARNING **: Failed to load shared library 'libwebkitgtk-3.0.so.0' referenced by the typelib: libwebkitgtk-3.0.soso: no se puede abrir el archivo del objeto compartido: No existe el archivo o el directorio
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/software-center", line 131, in <module>
    session = webkit.get_default_session()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/types.py", line 43, in function
    return info.invoke(*args, **kwargs)
gi._glib.GError: Could not locate webkit_get_default_session: `webkit_get_default_session': /usr/lib/libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0.so.0: undefined symbol: webkit_get_default_session

How to solve this?

Please Help.

Open the terminal and try this sudo apt-get install --reinstall libwebkitgtk-3.0-0. Then again try launching Software center. –  AzkerM Sep 18 '13 at 12:22

sudo apt-get install --reinstall software-center

Then try to re launch it.

Click on the link and go to step 9.

You can avoid the command "dist-upgrade"

This method worked for me.
