    Gdebi doesnt work


    Hi, all
    Gdebi is dead and nothing happened even after reinstall. Here is what the terminal shows:
    g.ivannov@computer:~$ sudo gdebi
    Password:
    /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/apt/__init__.py:18: FutureWarning: apt API not stable yet
    warnings.warn("apt API not stable yet", FutureWarning)
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/gdebi", line 10, in <module>
    from GDebi.GDebiCli import GDebiCli
    ImportError: No module named GDebi.GDebiCli
    g.ivannov@computer:~$
    Any idea?
    Thanks in advance

    GDebi is written in Python and apparently missing one module which is trying to import into the script.

    I'm not sure, but the module should be in a package called gdebi-core, it's available on APT

    It was really a bug and updating gdebi (which required the installation of gdebi-core) the problem is resolved. Guys, thank you very much for the help.
