Bug Description

When an app is choosen in the menu, nothing appends.
I tried to launch classicmenu-indicator in the terminal. It started. When I choose an application, this is the result error :

login$ classicmenu-indicator
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/classicmenu_indicator/", line 353, in on_menuitem_activate
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/gi/", line 43, in function
    return info.invoke(*args, **kwargs)
TypeError: launch() takes exactly 3 arguments (1 given)

My config : Ubuntu 12.04 64bit - classicmenu-indicator 0.10

Note : it worked perfectly with the 0.9 version

For those who would like to revert to previous version, I found a 0.09-1 package in Florian Diesch personnal package archive "testing".
The URL is :

That version is working with my 12.04.

Hope that it will not bother Florian.

The same bug occurs when classicmenu-indicator 0.10 is automatically launched at startup or when it is launched via the unity application lens. Also under 12.04 64 bits. Version 0.9 used to work perfectly.

With ubuntu 14.04 everything seems to be okay.

Have the same problem as OP on 12.04 32bit.
Also, my records show that Python was updated on the same date. Not saying that's meaningful, just coincidence(?).

In 12.04 the PyGObject API is in some cases different from newer versions, and my virtual machine for testing 12.04 was actually running 14.04 for some reasons... Ooops

I just released v0.10-1 with a fix for this.
