Ok, after a bit of googling, decided to install AppGrid...but i get this error. How do i fix it?

Setting up appgrid (0.310) ...
cp: cannot create regular file '/etc/init/appgrid.conf': No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing package appgrid (--configure):
 installed appgrid package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
 appgrid

I prefer Synaptic Package Manager. It is a more Grid-like design, with * a lot* of tools. So it does not look like the simplified Software store. But in functionality, it is streaks ahead.

What method did you use to install? That looks like it was installed without Root Privileges.

Ok, then I'll let synaptic a go, but the UI from what i see from screenshots is putting me off a bit. Is there one that has like a modern interface and possibly similar to UI on software?

Via terminal?Used a few commands from a stackoverflow post

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:appgrid/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install appgrid

Tried removing it and reinstalling via a deb package but the same error shows up. Am i missing any requirements here?

Last update was last week.

It is modern. That is not a classical Application.

I will need to try installing it to see.
