specto (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Current version of specto (0.3.1) has bug that make it unusable, like #456095 .
It should be updated to the upstream version 0.4 (there are already some public PPA with it, I don't think that's problematic to package).

Currently the package is broken for checking anything needing the network. is the basic problem, but given this was known about months ago, Specto should not have made it into 11.10 in this state.

As an added bonus, 0.4.1 has a variety of new plugins adding to its functionality.

Specto is a neat program. I'm surprised it isn't more popular.

Specto isn't more popular because doesn't work just installing it from repositories.
I don't know what to do exactly to make Specto networking to work.

In their Google's website say "Specto is unmaintained"

I patched the file /usr/share/pyshared/spectlib/ manually:

    def check_connection(self):
        if not self.specto.connection_manager.connected():
            self.specto.logger.log(_("No network connection detected"), "warning",
            return False
            return True


    def check_connection(self):
# if not self.specto.connection_manager.connected():
# self.specto.logger.log(_("No network connection detected"), "warning",
# self.specto.connection_manager.add_callback(self.start_checking)
# self.specto.mark_watch_status("no-network",
# return False
# else:
            return True
