[solved] Cannot launch cinnamon-settings - missing image module

Hello,

When I try to run `cinnamon-settings` it fails with the following message:

[orschiro@thinkpad ~]$ cinnamon-settings
No module named Image

However, I seem to have installed all relevant packages:

:: python2-imaging and python2-pillow are in conflict (python-imaging). Remove python2-pillow? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: cinnamon: requires python2-pillow

Any ideas?

Which version are you running?
I see https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/37268 but this seems a different issue.

Seems to be somewhat related to Cinnamon 2.0:

cinnamon 2.0.2-1

It may be that there is a file missing in /usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/modules, or code missing from one of the files in that folder. I honestly couldn't say because development is going so fast.

@orschiro: Which versions of the cinnamon and cinnamon-settings-daemon packages do you have installed?

@Karol: It may be unrelated seeing as pam is a separate package to cinnamon-settings-daemon, but I wouldn't rule it out just yet.


Claire is fine.

Re: [solved] Cannot launch cinnamon-settings - missing image module

Hmm... Ok, well I have Cinnamon 1.9.2-2 (because Cinnamon won't start for me at version 2.0.2-1), but everything else up-to-date.

I have the python2-pillow package installed and cinnamon-settings is working fine for me. From what I've read on the Github, some people have managed to get Cinnamon running with python2-imaging and have the problem you are describing with cinnamon-settings. Whether installing python2-pillow works for them or not is still to be seen.

My suggestion for now: Re-install python2-pillow, reboot and see what happens.

I just tried it but it changes nothing.

Re: [solved] Cannot launch cinnamon-settings - missing image module

That is interesting. If I force to remove python2-pillow and install python2-imaging instead, then I can run cinnamon-settings.
