Had an odd thing happen today. I went to the Ubuntu Add/Remove software thing and the directory of all the software available was empty!
For non Linux users, I need to fill you in. Linux is more than an operating system, it also has loads of free programmes. These are simply added or removed from your machine by ticking a box.
As I said the Add/Remove directory was empty. Don’t what I had done but the solution was simple. I reinstalled the Add/Remove programme. If it happens to you open a terminal and put in the following command and it is sorted.
sudo apt-get –reinstall install gnome-app-install
