Re: Spicebird crashes

Postby Guest on Sun Nov 23, 2008 1:50 pm

thanks for the fast work!

however, Spicebird won't start. I only see the splash screen and this error message in the Terminal:
Code: Select all
(spicebird-bin:22453): tp-glib-WARNING **: Failed to connect to starter bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-LfLJQajEv8: Connection refused


It seems to be a problem with the telepathy framework but I couldn't figure out what it is. when I use the command
Code: Select all
spicebird-compose
instead of
Code: Select all
spicebird
the email composition window opens and stays open, but the main application never shows up.

That happens with both, the original and the Mint version. I'm running elyssa and have most empathy/telepathy-packages installed.

Don't use spicebird-compose, it wasn't suppose to be in the package.
I was testing if it would work but found spicebird opened the compose window anyway.

You need to launch it from the menu to get it to open.

Weird works 100% here.
I did and update from 0.4 and it worked fine, even removed spicebird and reinstalled to test.
Run spicebird from the terminal and post the errors you get.
You could try to rename the ~/.spicebird folder to ~/.spicebird-old and try starting.
Might want to try after rebooting as well.

Still doesn't work, I've deleted the .spicebird folder. When I run spicebird in the terminal, I get this:

Code: Select all

1nszdfts.default - default
1nszdfts.default - default

(spicebird-bin:19573): tp-glib-WARNING **: Failed to connect to starter bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-2AUceppF2J: Connection refused


The splash screen pops up and dissapears immediately.

This is a known issue that occurs rarely but has been reported mainly on ubuntu based systems.We are working on that issue nevertheless.Also I'm packaging native deb files for ubuntu.It should work IMHO.The reason being that the moz build of sb uses it's own dbus and telepathy libs instead of system ones.

One workaround is to try creating a new user and checking if you can start it from there.

--------
Try to run spicebird script under sudo.
It's good idea, but it's work

Ok I've got a working spicebird on elyssa.
Not sure what caused it but it started to give me the same error.
The new package seems to work fine without any errors.
Once I make a few more changes I'll upload the packages to the community repo's.
Later I'll get the translation packages made.

Re: Spicebird - install - Ubuntu

Postby mver on Sun Feb 08, 2009 12:10 pm

Use of sudo for running Spicebird after installing, per above, in /opt/spicebird-beta is moves me ahead from not working to working :) and I thank you for that -- at least up to the point of sending and receiving email with one account. Those are not working yet. :(

On the other hand, spicebird_0.7-0ubuntu4_i386.deb exists and looks as though it is tailored to Ubuntu (I am using 8.04, Hardy Heron). It includes a Debian package installer, but that appears to be asking for libtelepathy-glib.so, which exists in the ...beta version but not in the .deb version. :(

So, onward to next steps.

The one in the repo is for Felicia.
Some how my Elyssa install has package updates you can't get from ubuntu. :(
This makes it so if I compile the package it'll only install on my system.
I need to start from a fresh install and try to get spicebird to compile on it.
I'll try this after the XFCE release since I have all my work stored on this partition.

Ok talking to the spicebird team and they got the addons to work in the ubuntu deb.
This weekend 0.7.1 was released and as soon as they get the source, they'll be making the packages.
I will then get the new source from them and make the packages for Linux Mint.
I also will see if i can get the language packages made.

Ok I have the source and have created the .deb for 0.7.1.
I have also created packages for the locales.
As soon as the repo is fixed to let me update I'll will.

Ok I have update spicebird and added my own patches to make spicebird find the browser plugins.(ie flash)
Now most Google applets that use flash should work.
Also created the locale packages, not all are 100% complete but something is better than nothing.

Also backported libtelepathy-glib0 for Elyssa, so now spicebird is update to 0.7.1.
