Ubuntu Software Centre / Ubuntu 12.04

Recently people have been complaining that the USC crashes for a couple of seconds on launching the application. The problem lies within one of the views in which you view USC in.

Luckily there is a solution.

Open terminal, and enter:

sudo gedit /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/views/appdetailsview.py

Find the line, that reads:

self.progress.set_data(“transparent-bg-hint”, True)

and change it, so it reads:

#self.progress.set_data(“transparent-bg-hint”, True)

Save the file, and then close it. The bug will go away and you can happily open USC without it crashing. 🙂
