** Package changed: gparted (Ubuntu) => ubiquity (Ubuntu)

** Changed in: ubiquity (Ubuntu)
       Status: Confirmed => Triaged

** Summary changed:

- libgtkmm-2.4.so.1 cannot open shared object file
+ Installer removes packages, but fails to update package database

** Description changed:

- /usr/sbin/gpartedbin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
- The current version of my libgtkmm is  3.2.0-0ubuntu1
- libgtk-2.4-1c2a :  1:2.24.2-1
- Ubuntu 11.10
- gparted : 0.8.1-1ubuntu4
+ There is a set of packages that are installed on the livecd that get
+ removed during installation.  Sometimes the package database fails to be
+ updated to reflect that the packages were removed, so while the files
+ are gone, the package database still shows the package as being
+ installed.
+ 
+ This problem can manifest itself when users install gparted, which
+ depends on libgtkmm-2.4.so.1.  The package database things this library
+ is already installed, but in fact, the files were removed during
+ installation, so gparted can not load the library.  Other packages have
+ been affected as well, though the problem is difficult to reproduce.  It
+ may require getting an error during the grub installation phase.
