GError in Weather: Image format not recognized

Bug #520016 reported by NoWarning on 2010-02-10
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Awn Extras

Bug Description

This happens quite often, the applet crashes and this traceback pops up. The weather applet works fine otherwise, including the "show map" feature.
I'm not sure if it is relevant, but my internet connection has packet loss issues. Images and web pages are sometimes only partially downloaded.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/awn/extras/", line 64, in run
    r = func(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/share/avant-window-navigator/applets/weather/", line 186, in bound_func
    return func(obj, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/share/avant-window-navigator/applets/weather/", line 629, in get_weather_map
    return loader.get_pixbuf()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 153, in __exit__
GError: Format d'image non reconnu


ubuntu 9.10 (up to date)
Awn installed via ppa ( karmic main)

Fix committed in revision 1208. Once you have updated the awn-extras PPA (wait for it to be build), please verify that the applet doesn't crash anymore and shows a notification instead.

I got the update today via the ppa, the fix works as expected: shows a nice notification when the network fails and the applet doesn't crash anymore.
Thank you for the quick fix!
