Appgrid not working

Asked by Francis Brabant on 2014-01-16

Just a window with the search box, category, state and sort menu, but nothing works. I reinstall (or repaired it) through Synaptic to no avail.

Running Ubuntu 12.04, with gnome classic desktop.

Here it is :
$ appgrid
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/appgrid/widgets/home.py", line 652, in next_row
    self.y)
  File "/usr/share/appgrid/widgets/home.py", line 765, in render_tile_at_position
    t = app.thumbnail
  File "/usr/share/appgrid/appdata/clients.py", line 116, in thumbnail
    from appdata.helpers import request
  File "/usr/share/appgrid/appdata/helpers.py", line 17, in <module>
    GLib.UserDirectory.DIRECTORY_DOWNLOAD) + '/appgrid/'
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 15: ordinal not in range(128)

Appgrid is no official Ubuntu package, but comes from a PPA. So it might be better if that question is moved to the appgrid area (click on the yellow pencil icon besides "Ubuntu" under the heading "Question Information - For:" and on the page that opens select "Project" and enter "appgrid").

The error message shown possibly indicates problems with non-ascii characters in the name of the download directory (maybe Ã?).

Thanks for letting me now about this - an update for App Grid that resolves this issue should be available in your update manager. Hope you enjoy :)

Can you help with this problem?
