LottaNZB "Select LottaNZBs Usage mode" window shows up blank when starting LottaNZB

Asked by isuftin on 2008-08-30

hellanzb is running in background, I start lottanzb and get a blank window titled "Select LottaNZB's Usage Mode". I cannot kill this window and the window itself has no buttons, no text, not anything. I have to find the process and kill it in order to kill the window.

When starting from cli, the debug is:
INFO Starting LottaNZB 0.3.1 using Python 2.5.2.
INFO The LottaNZB configuration file couldn't be found or might be invalid. Launching usage mode selection window...
ERROR The specified HellaNZB configuration file doesn't exist.
ERROR The specified HellaNZB configuration file doesn't exist.
Traceback (most recent call last):

    gnome.program_init("lottanzb", "0.2.1-pre", properties = { gnome.PARAM_APP_DATADIR : "/usr/share" })
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'program_init'

I cannot ctrl-c out of this either. Have to go to a new terminal and manually kill the process.

This was installed using the 0.31 deb from the LottaNZB site.

Hi isuftin,

there seems to be a Python module called 'gnome' on your machine that doesn't have the 'program_init' function, which is rather uncommon. Please make sure that the 'python-gnome2' package is installed on your system. If this is already the case, you would be forced to manually comment out the 'gnome.program_init(...)' line in LottaNZBs source code. But let's not hope so. The next version of LottaNZB should also check if this specific function exists before trying to invoke it.

Thanks for reporting.

Can you help with this problem?
