Bug Description

I really want to be able to use dreampie!

Hi! I found the source of the problem - my windows user name is in Chinese! It's ok when logged in as another windows account which is in pure English...

This problem maybe caused by the very same bug I found in the standard Python lib, check it here:

update: changing the system's TEMP and TMP environment variables will solve the problem.

Thanks for investigating this!

I have an idea: Can you try to change the line in dreampielib/gui/




and see if it works?

The function _make_style_scheme creates a temporary directory, and I guess that it is made inside you home directory. I think that the problem is that the function set_search_path has a problem with accepting the directory name, because of the characters it contains or the encoding. Perhaps encoding it in UTF8 (which is what GTK functions expect, I believe) will help.
