Synaptic package manager was working in my Ubuntu 12.04 installation under Unity, but it recently stopped working for no apparent reason. It does work when I switch to KDE. Suggestions?

  • by KDE do you mean kubuntu-desktop or kubuntu? – Ankit Aug 28 '12 at 2:36

    What exactly doesn't work? Do you get any error messages? – Florian Diesch Aug 28 '12 at 2:40

I had a similar problem some time ago. I solved typing in a terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface toolkit-accessibility false

But you sould provide further details to understand if you have the same problem I had. If the above solution won't work, please edit your answer with verbose information, such as the output of running synaptic by terminal.
