Issue #79 new

Grooveshark is not initialized

created an issue

I installed latest version of gSharkDown but I get following error:

GrooveShark service has probably changed or is not working! gSharkDown will not works propperly, so please be patient until we find a solution. Also, this may usually caused by a proxy misconfiguration please check your proxy configuration. The error was: 'result'

This is terminal output, when I run it:

/usr/share/gsharkdown/lib/guihelpers.py:441: Warning: /tmp/buildd/glib2.0-2.33.12+really2.32.4/./gobject/gsignal.c:2459: signal child-added' is invalid for instance0x23739c0' self.ind.set_menu(self.menu) [Initializing Grooveshark] [Grooveshark initialized failed]

I really don't know how to fix it.

    If you are on Ubuntu or Linuxmint 13.10, there is a regression in gir1.2-dbusmenu-glib-0.4 (libdbusmenu). that was fixed in Nov 2013. Update your system and repost if you have problems.

    I`m still in pain. =(

    Using ubuntu 13.10 64 fully up-to-date. Installed gsharkdown again, installed stuff like python-libproxy, pythin-appindicator etc, but when I open gsharkdown it shows me the following error message:

    GrooveShark service has probably changed or is not working!
    gSharkDown will not works propperly, so please be patient until we find a solution.
    Also, this may usually caused by a proxy misconfiguration please check your proxy configuration.
    
    The error was: must be string or buffer, not None
    

    I'm using the gir1.2-dbusmenu-glib-0.4 (libdbusmenu) you mentioned.

    What gsharkdown shows in my terminal window:

    Hi, I'm also facing some problems with the initialisation with gSharkDown. The application opens up but when I enter anythin in the search window I get this error message:

    "GrooveShark service has probably changed or is not working! gSharkDown will not works propperly, so please be patient until we find a solution. Also, this may usually caused by a proxy misconfiguration please check your proxy configuration.

    The error was: must be string or buffer, not None"

    In the terminal I get:

    "[Initializing Grooveshark] [Grooveshark initialized failed] Exception in thread Thread-2: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/threading.py", line 551, in __bootstrap_inner self.run() File "/usr/share/gsharkdown/lib/tfuncs.py", line 29, in run groove.init() File "/usr/share/gsharkdown/lib/groove.py", line 226, in init raise Exception(_("Grooveshark is not initialized")) Exception: Grooveshark konnte nicht initialisiert werden"

    Ichecked that all relevant packages are installed in a suitable version and tried also with different proxy settings (no proxy, system wide proxy, manual proxy...) no way to get it work. I would be glad about any ideas...

    In most cases, removing the .pyc files from the /usr/share/gsharkdown/lib will solve the problems, because these a the compiled versions of the .py files, and python's libraries are updated frequently. I am running linuxmint 17.1 (derived of UBUNTU 14) with no problems.
