I'm trying to get terminator to run on a slackware64 13.37 multi-lib system. Using sbopkg terminator compiles fine, but when I try to run it I get:
ImportError: could not import bonobo.ui
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/terminator", line 76, in <module>
TERMINATOR = Terminator()
File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/terminatorlib/terminator.py", line 44, in __init__
File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/terminatorlib/terminator.py", line 67, in prepare_attributes
File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/terminatorlib/terminator.py", line 89, in attempt_gnome_client
AttributeError: '__main__.GnomeClient' object has no attribute 'connect_to_session_manager'
I have reinstalled python, reinstalled libgnome, not sure what to do next.
(I don't really understand why libgnome should be involved at all. slackbuilds.org does not list it (or anything else, for that matter) has a requirement for building. I had just read somewhere that it might work.)
I'm surprised the SlackBuild does not list libgnome as a dep. Looking through the source code of terminator, it looks like you need at least pygtk and gobject. I'm not sitting in front of my slackware box at this moment, but I'm pretty sure at least gobject or pygobject is not included by default.
From the error message, it looks like Python is having trouble loading bonobo.ui
I would do an `installpkg --reinstall --install-new` on libbonobo, libbonoboui, and anything else that uses it, to make sure those installs really installed and that the correct versions got installed in the first place. I would also check your sbopkg conf to make sure it is using the correct versions.
