    Hi Everyone,
    I followed your instructions for getting software from authors home site.When I was installing ttf-mscorefonts-installer,I got aMicrosoft agreement box in the Terminal.I could find no way to accept or decline and no way to escape the box except by closing the Terminal.
    If I try to start again I get: E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run ‘sudo dpkg –configure -a’ to correct the problem
    If I try the command apt remove,I get the same reply.

    Worse still I get the same reply if I try to open Synaptic PM.
    In case you didn’t realise I am a newbie on Mint 12 !
    How do I manually run the command given ?
    I’ve tried a bit of research but I’m getting nowhere.
    Kind regards to anyone who can help, Andy.

    “all packages” and “accessories” won’t open in mint software manager. Never have. Something seriously wrong with this, thankfully synaptic is there to actually do the job…
