zeitgeist journal is empty is issue with Docky or Zeitigest?

Asked by dave p on 2010-09-04

I am running Docky 2.1; GAJ 3.4.1 amd Zeitigeist 0.5 in Ubuntu 10.04
i have enable the helpers in Docky, but the Journal window always appears empty.
When I run Docky -d the following errors appear

[Error 21:23:37.176] [Helper] zeitgeist_journal.py :: Traceback (most recent call last):
[Error 21:23:37.176] [Helper] zeitgeist_journal.py :: File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/dbus/connection.py", line 576, in msg_reply_handler

What I am not sure is if this is an issue with Docky or Zeitigeist. If somene could advise that would be great

I have also noted that the Zeitgeist intergration and journal helpers are in a 'stopped state' whenever I re-boot.
They remain enabled. To get them to work again I have to disable them and then re-enable them.

You are having problems connecting to the Zeitgeist dbus. My guess is that (once again, as is the case almost every month) they changed the API for the daemon and did not bother updating their helper. Quite frankly I am to the point of wanting to remove the helper from DockManager because it almost never works.

Thanks for the clarification - also thanks for Docky - most useful app on my desktop, looking forward to it keeping developing.
