Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

installing an image with oem-config-gtk makes ubiquity die on startup and instead makes gdm come up on the screen. on the console the following python error is shown (nothing in syslog or oem-config.log, i will attach both of them anyway for completeness though):

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ubiquity-dm", line 371, in <module>
    ret = dm.run(options, args[3:])
  File "/usr/bin/ubiquity-dm", line 299, in run
    greeter = subprocess.Popen(program, stdin=null, stdout=logfile, stderr=logfile)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/subprocess.py", line 623, in __init__
    errread, errwrite)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/subprocess.py", line 1128, in _execute_child
    raise child_exception
AttributeError: Values instance has no attribute 'rfind'

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.1.20

ubiquity (2.1.20) lucid; urgency=low

  * Convert migrationassistant, partman, summary, and usersetup to
  * Do not fullscreen the installer window when in only-ubiquity mode,
    so users can see the pretty background and window decorations.
  * Fix function arguments in ubiquity-dm (LP: #521702).
  * Add python-rsvg dependency for the new greeter.
