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
[INFO] UI: Theme: BadChoice

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
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('')
>>> urllib.urlopen('')
and see what happens

Can you help with this problem?
