Re: Can not INstall anything from Gnome Software-Fedora 20

I'd try installing something using the command line. This would be a test to see if the Gnome Software application is at fault.

I suspect that it may be. I tried installing an application using the Gnome Software application yesterday and although there were no apparent errors the application was nowhere to be found.

Hello, open a terminal and as root (su) enter:
Code:
yum install brasero
and see if that works or post the error message if not.

Re: Can not INstall anything from Gnome Software-Fedora 20

That errôr message really looks like its from the STARTED brasero.
Thus the app is installed, but it fails on something else..

What were you trying to do?

Don't bother trying, use yumex instead.


Code:
yum install yumex

I have just used Gnome Software to install a couple of packages successfully - no problems.
You could try reinstalling the app:
sudo yum reinstall gnome-software

Re: Can not Install anything from Gnome Software-Fedora 20

I've recently debugged some problem with gnome-software 3.12 which was related to a too old hawkey version.
For this I used pkcon, a command line command for packagekit which I have only recently become aware of.
So, you could try a few things with this command and I think it should behave very much like gnome-software, things to try:
Quote:
pkcon refresh
pkcon search <package>
pkcon install <package>
Another thing you could do is to start gnome-software in verbose mode (but it will probably be too chatty to comprehend):
Quote:
pkill gnome-software
gnome-software --verbose

Re: Can not Install anything from Gnome Software-Fedora 20

gnome-software --verbose

results in
No protocol specified

TheKing, this is a 3-yr. old thread. You'd be far better off to start a new one and give full details, including your current version. Meanwhile, this thread's closed.
