^ the following is the python error from my install, as I am unsure if it has already been posted.

Added another duplicate as it had the same debug information, changed to confirmed as there are three duplicates (+ myself)

Changed in memaker (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I have tracked the issue to the memaker.ui file, the IDs of your GUI components are not unique within the file. This is causing GTK to though a tantrum. Renaming the IDs to something else (possibly more related to the job of the UI element (ie. image1 -> gtk-save-as-image) would probably fix this issue.

Diff Attached.

I've tried this patch and it worked.

Seems like something we should cherry pick for Karmic. Could you please provide a unified diff ('diff -Nru')? It makes it much easier to review and sponsor a change.

Thanks Joseph! I've applied the patch to the Ubuntu package.

This bug is still present in the download from the memaker launchpad front page ( released on 2009-08-26 and in the bzr checkout done with

$ bzr branch lp:memaker

Why did you fix that for Ubuntu only? Please reopen this bug until it is fixed in the download release + trunk.


My patch doesn't work with trunk. I'll re-do the changes and generate a new patch.

Here is the patch for trunk
