new versions of popper not work on ubuntu 10.04

Asked by gabry78 on 2011-08-29

I've used popper for a long time but new versions of popper (>0.25) not works on Ubuntu 10.04: in practice, popper setup runs properly (email test is ok) but no indicators appear in title bar also when a new email is present. Why?

Which version run on 10.04?

thanks

It should work on Ubuntu 10.04. Can you please check the log files:
- home/user/.popper/popper.log
- home/user/.popper/popper_config.log
You also could run Popper in a Terminal to see what happens:
- go to: usr/share/popper
- and run: python popper.py
- check the terminal output for errors

I've tried to run python popper .py in /usr/share/popper but... the file doesn't exist.. probably this is the problem (how can solve it?)
Note: popper setup and email ran successflully.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks a lot!
