Gkdebconf returning an error status

Brother @Aravisian, gkdebconf not working properly. Whenever I try to run any module from within the app/tool an error pop up message says" The configuration script returned an error status" !!!

Please help me.

natun-athiti, can you run the following in terminal

sudo dpkg-reconfigure debconf

Does that give an error?

Same with:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall debconf

Does this give any errors?
Or do they help resolve the issue?

I am talking about GkDebconf not the Debconf app,which is running FINE!!!

Natun-athiti… I am going to give you a word of advise: Do not bite the hand that feeds you. As I am working during the day and need to be up at 2am to drive my son into work- I am burning the candle at both ends. This allows me an ability to spend a great deal of my own time on this forum attempting to help others. Sadly, it also means I am often tired - it is 1:36am here.
You have a habit of making posts that appear Angry to posts that are trying to help you.
It is time to make a new habit. Treat those members of this board that donate their time courteously. You are capable of taking a moment when you post to consider NOT trying to sidestep the Word Filter and to NOT react swiftly and angrily.

Can you run the following in terminal

sudo dpkg-reconfigure gkdebconf

sudo apt-get install --reinstall gkdebconf

I am extremely Sorry, If I have hurt your feelings. PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR THAT. :disappointed: :pleading_face: :pray:

Certainly.
Have you been able to run those commands and see the terminal output to determine their status according to dpkg?

Ok, please try

sudo apt-get install libqtgui4-perl

You may also want

sudo apt install qt5-style-plugins

Then in terminal, export it:

export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2

Notice you are running KDE and wondered if gkdebconf is aimed more at the Gnome desktop? I have never heard of this package until reading your post.
