Bug Description

I've pulled the latest revision of the Zeitgeist codebase several times during the past weeks (including the latest 559) but when launching zeitgeist-daemon.sh, it keeps crashing with the following error message:

...@...:~/gnome-zeitgeist$ ./zeitgeist-daemon.sh
Are you using Firefox?
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./src/zeitgeist-daemon.py", line 15, in <module>
    from zeitgeist_engine.zeitgeist_dbus import RemoteInterface
  File "/home/lantash/gnome-zeitgeist/src/zeitgeist_engine/zeitgeist_dbus.py", line 6, in <module>
    from zeitgeist_engine.zeitgeist_datasink import datasink
  File "/home/lantash/gnome-zeitgeist/src/zeitgeist_engine/zeitgeist_datasink.py", line 218, in <module>
    datasink = DataSinkSource()
  File "/home/lantash/gnome-zeitgeist/src/zeitgeist_engine/zeitgeist_datasink.py", line 47, in __init__
    instance = getattr(sourcefile, item + "Source")()
  File "/home/lantash/gnome-zeitgeist/src/zeitgeist_engine/zeitgeist_firefox.py", line 46, in __init__
    self.__copy_sqlite()
  File "/home/lantash/gnome-zeitgeist/src/zeitgeist_engine/zeitgeist_firefox.py", line 101, in __copy_sqlite
    shutil.copy2(self.historydb[0], self.loc)
IndexError: list index out of range

I deleted ~/.[Zz]eitgeist before running the command, but this didn't help. I use Ubuntu Jaunty 64-bit with the latest updates applied.

I found the problem: My Firefox profile is not located in ./mozilla/firefox but in somewhere in ~/Dropbox, as specified in the profiles.ini file. I'm currently working on a fix.

Changed in gnome-zeitgeist:
assignee: nobody → Severin Heiniger (lantash)
status: New → In Progress

Wow thanks dude
