Bug Description

I have installed blueproximity in Ubuntu 14.04. It installed without a problem. When I tried to start it nothing happened. No GUI comes up, no error message, no crash report, nothing. I manually triggered this report.

I have all updates installed. Bluetooth working properly.

When starting from terminal I get this:

"Using config file 'standard.conf'.
/usr/share/blueproximity/ GtkWarning: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated
  self.wTree ="

Have to Ctrl+C to get out of there an nothing else shows up. Not sure what this means.

Running it on Dell Inspirion 17R with 8GB RAM.

I found a solution that is quite easy to implement that makes the UI appear, after getting a hint from this page

Oops, added the reverse patch, this one should be the proper one.
