install issue

Asked by thracky on 2008-06-23

Having a heck of a time getting lottanzb to run... as far as I can tell all the proper dependencies in place. This is the resulting output when trying to run it.

the libglade warning about unknown widget class gtkassistant is probably the cause of all this but as far as I can tell I have the latest gtk and glade2 versions.

INFO Starting LottaNZB 0.2 using Python 2.4.4.
INFO The LottaNZB configuration could not be loaded. Starting configuration assistant.
INFO Created the LottaNZB directory /home/user/.lottanzb/.

Hi thracky,

the libglade warning clearly indicates that your libglade version doesn't support assistants. We didn't check when the support for them was added to libglade so you couldn't find any version information in the dependency section at Since you claim to be using the latest version of libglade your distributions comes with, I assume your distribution isn't the newest one. What I suggest you to do:

- Either: Upgrade libglade somehow (this might probably not be that easy)
- Or: The next version of LottaNZB (not released yet) doesn't make use of GtkAssitant anymore, so there's a chance that this version might run on your machine without forcing you to upgrade your libraries. You can get the source tarball here: Unpack and install it. Please note: Run 'python upgrade' instead of 'python install'!

Please let us know if it works and don't hesitate to report bugs in this new version of LottaNZB!
