Bug Description

I think that the Virtualbox plugin broke with 3.2.4. Even though I have the 'include items in top level dir' still enabled, my machines don't show up in the main catalogue. Also, the options for Virtualbox look pretty standard as for any other program - doesn't have the option to scan for vm's like it did before and etc.

Debug run:

I checked, and I don't see any problems with last Kupfer version and VBox 3.2.4.
All virtual machines should be visible under "Oracle VM VirtualBox".

We need some more information - version of Kupfer.
Also please run attached file ( from /usr/share/kupfer (in example: cd /usr/share/kupfer && python2.6 ~/ This should print all virtual machines.


It seems to be working today. I'll do that again if it does this again.

My Kupfer seems to be breaking down, literally. It'll freeze, it'll hang, it'll want to start conversations with VMs:

vboxapi sometimes is quite unstable. Please check last version of virtualbox (3.2.6).
If it also don't work, please check this Kufer verision:
I've added logging some debug information.

I've got this case again; cannot open a VM, does want to chat with it in dropown menu. Should I still try that kupfer version and how?

Debug log:

I can't reproduce this error.
Please give us some more information:
- kupfer version (kupfer -v or apt-cache policy kupfer)
- exact virtualbox version (apt-cache policy virtualbox-3.2)

You can try my patches by downloading this version:

Please cleanup cache before running it (rm -rf ~/.cache/kupfer).

It doesn't always happen.

Needs information about a newer version.
