Bug Description

I was trying to get warcraft 3 to run on its own config file through vineyard when the entire vineyard seemed to stop working.

The first problem I encountered that seemed odd is that the config file that I had warcraft 3 was set to use a virtual desktop however it refused to open in a virtual desktop. So I deleted the config file and decided to make another

Here is where the second problem arrived, I could no longer make a new config file, I could click the plus button and be prompted for a name however it never showed up. I used the command line option to check for config files and got this.
"john@john-laptop:~$ vineyard-cli --list-conf
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/vineyard-cli", line 829, in <module>
    main = Main()
  File "/usr/bin/vineyard-cli", line 212, in __init__
    data.append( [i, wine.prefixes.get_dir(i)] )
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/wine/", line 233, in get_dir
    bottle_dir = get_dir_name(bottlename)
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/wine/", line 212, in get_dir_name
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/wine/", line 814, in dict_to_case_insensitive
    dict_copy[key.lower()] = value
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'lower'

Then I tried to start vineyard preferences again and got this

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/vineyard-launcher", line 777, in <module>
    filename = os.path.abspath(sys.argv[1])
  File "/usr/bin/vineyard-launcher", line 137, in __init__
    ] + sorted(wine.prefixes.list(), key=str.lower)
TypeError: descriptor 'lower' requires a 'str' object but received a 'NoneType'

now nothing works at all.

Thanks for reporting this.

I can't reproduce the error so could you post the output of:
ls -R ~/.winebottles

I uninstalled vineyard, and then installed your fixed version and now I can open preferences again and run programs from the run executable option. However I can not run it by double clicking the executable. All I get is a loading wheel and then it stops. I have no way of debugging further.

When you say that you double click the executable, do you mean in the file manager (Nautilus)?
If so, could you try running vineyard-launcher /path/to/executable in a terminal and post the output?

Also, by the fixed version you mean the latest in trunk, right?
