Bug Description

Binary package hint: ltsp-manager

I have launched ltsp-manager from a terminal and from run command. All that happens is a grey box appears at the top left of the screen.

It looks as if it's trying open but fails with something.

This is happening in both Ubuntu 7.10 and Kubuntu 7.10.

same here, clicking on a spot near the middle of the box brings up a menu with 'i386' on it (probably a drop down box for architectures). Clicking around the lower right hand corner of the window, makes the window disappear and the following error message appear:

@Andrew. That probably has nothing to do with the original bug. It seems you unintentionally changed a path in the GUI since you couldn't see it. Especially since it seems to have printed out the very list that is having trouble iterating over later(the list of graphics drivers).

I have same/similar problem. Launch ltsp-manager, grey box (that keeps itself 'above others') appears. Program does not actually crash. This output appears in terminal window:

Running ubuntu 7.10

Same here,
Ubuntu Server 8.04 and Ubuntu Alternate 8.04,
three diffent installs and all of them the same simpthom.

Grabbed the bzr get http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogra/LTSPManager/bzr/
and it is the same.

I have gotten both messages mentioned on this thread on diferente circumstances.
Now, Invoking from cli

seba@vortex:~$ sudo ltsp-manager
[sudo] password for seba:
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/apt/__init__.py:18: FutureWarning: apt API not stable yet
  warnings.warn("apt API not stable yet", FutureWarning)
The one that I pulled from bzr says
seba@vortex:/tmp/bzr/bin$ sudo ./ltsp-manager

(ltsp-manager:9511): libglade-WARNING **: unknown widget class 'GnomeFileEntry'

resulting on the same gray box.

Can we get the Hady Tag Removed ? this Affects all Ubuntu Versions as far as I can tell..

Same Errors on Ubuntu 9.10

Unfortunately the same errors apply for Edubuntu 10.04, so I guess that will apply for Ubuntu 10.04 as well. I get the following output when I run it from a terminal:
$ gksudo ltsp-manager
/usr/bin/ltsp-manager:12: DeprecationWarning: The popen2 module is deprecated. Use the subprocess module. from popen2 import Popen3
/usr/bin/ltsp-manager:21: GtkWarning: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated
  self.wTree=gtk.glade.XML ("/usr/share/ltsp-manager/ltsp-manager.glade")

I give the grey box as somebody else already reported. When I close that box, I don't get my prompt back again: I first have to press ctrl+c.

i have same problem in edubuntu maverick
anybody have a patch?

This bug has existed in every version of Ubuntu that I can remember. Can we get a fix please? Otherwise why is it in the repository to begin with?
