Covergloobus doesn't start and I get Errno 113

Asked by Alexander on 2010-08-11

Hello. I tried running CoverGloobus from the command line, it didn't start and I get this -

[WARNING] Using default Configuration

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and I installed CoverGloobus from the ppa. Everything was working fine last time I used it and now suddenly this.. I tried reinstalling it and deleting the .cfg file but it didn't work. Any help would be very much appreciated.

its not covergloobus problem, python fails to download a page for the web
maybe something wrong with your network connection
google for 'No route to host'
CG tries to load this site http://www.albumart.org
to test it you can try to load it from console with python, from Terminal run:
$ python
and then from python console:
>>> import urllib
>>> urllib.urlopen('http://www.albumart.org')
>>> urllib.urlopen('http://www.google.com')
and see what happens

Can you help with this problem?
