Bug Description

After installing slidewall to version 12.10, on Ubuntu 12.04.1 (fully updated), slidewall won't start up at all. When run from a terminal window with --verbose, the following logging is printed to screen:

DEBUG:slidewall: set_up_logging() 'logging enabled'

I have the same problem, also on 12.04.1. Had an older version (don`t remember which one exactly, but it was installed from Software Center) and it worked just fine. This is the output from verbose:

Hello guys!

Can you please run this command: rm -r ~/.local/share/slidewall
After this please try to run Slidewall again. I think the problem is the configuration files. In the new version they are a bit different from the older version of Slidewall.
Thank you.

Hi Fioan,

Slidewall isn't reacting at all, even after I tried your command.
Well, I'd want to post a log to but I don't know how to generate it.

Cheerio,
Thorge :)

I had the same problem in Ubuntu 14.04 and follow the advice about remove "rm -r ~/.local/share/slidewall" then remove the installation of slidewall and install again and it works fine.

Thanks
