Unable to Launch preferences in Arch

Asked by Ian Cornwall on 2015-01-12

I am unable to launch the preferences in Arch Linux. If I run Variety from the CLI I get this message.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/variety/VarietyWindow.py", line 232, in on_mnu_preferences_activate
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/variety/VarietyWindow.py", line 206, in create_preferences_dialog

    initial_slashes = path.startswith('/')
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'startswith'

Nothing comes up.

Please make sure you are running the latest version 0.5.1 (to be sure it is not something already outdated), and we'll continue the discussion in the bugreport I created (respond directly there).

Some other things to do: please send me your config file (~/.config/variety/variety.conf). Have you configured Variety to use folders on some drive which is not currently mounted?

Can you help with this problem?
