Error on startup on KDE

Asked by Mauriziopz on 2009-04-21

Hi
I recently installed backintime on my kubuntu 8.10 box but I get this error while trying to start it up.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/backintime/kde4backintime.py", line 1006, in <module>
    kapp, kaboutdata = create_kapplication( cfg )
  File "/usr/share/backintime/kde4backintime.py", line 966, in create_kapplication
    line = line.strip()
AttributeError: strip

Can you help me?

I'm using kde 4.2
thanks

When did this error appear? What happened before (or what were the steps leading up to this)?

Any information you can provide is helpful. Thanks!

Is there a way to have it print more debug information? If you tell me how, I could do it
