Patch to make the applet run (1.02 KB, patch)

committed Details | Review

Description Willie Walker 2009-04-04 14:52:18 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
Try to run /usr/lib/colorblind-applet/colorblind-applet.  You will run into two problems:

1) The PYTHONPATH is set to the colorblind directory under the Python site-packages area.  Instead, it should be set to the site-packages directory.

2) You will get a TypeError when the code attempts to call tomboy_keybinder_bind

Stack trace:

Other information:
I'll attach a patch soon.

Patch to make the applet run

This patch allows the applet to run so I can test/verify bug #573023.  I'm not quite sure how to use the applet, though.  It seems to run fine, but I'm not sure how to make it produce visual changes on the display.

Note that the colorblind filtering setup in Orca seems to work, though.  So, there might be some hookup issue between this applet and the colorblind support.
