error after plug-in installation

  • Tim

    I installed a couple of plug-ins via the sourceforge mirror.

    I now get the following error for every plug-in when I start DrPython:

    Error with: FindAutoComplete
    DrPython will not load this plugin.

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/drpython", line 1117, in InitializePlugin
        exec(compile(plugin + ".Plugin(self)", pluginfile, 'exec'))
      File "/home/timmie/.drpython/plugins/", line 1, in <module>
        #   Programmer: Franz Steinhaeusler
      File "/home/timmie/.drpython/plugins/", line 832, in Plugin
        prefsfile = DrFrame.pluginspreferencesdirectory + "/FindAutoComplete.preferences.dat"
    <type 'exceptions.AttributeError'>: 'DrFrame' object has no attribute 'pluginspreferencesdirectory'

    I suppose that it's easy to solve. But I am a "Beginner" and therefore need your help here. Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Tim, what DrPy Installation do you have? The latest? 1.65?
      What version of this plugin?
      If you have a version minor to 1.65, I think this is the reason, because
      pluginspreferencesdirectory was introduced not before 1.65.

        I am using the current version available in Ubuntu:

        Seems that I need to try building the new version...

        The plugins are the versions available on SF.

        Thanks for your quick reply & support.

      I have succeeded to run the current version I downloaded from SF.

      I was able to install the plug-ins without problems. But the buttons that are installed by various plug-ins don't appear in the menu.

      How can I make this version available systemwide like the Ubuntu package version?

      Hm, the buttons were visible in the last version (1.61)?
      Could you be more specific (the reason is, that if it can be duplicated, it could be fixed more easily; at any rate, it should added to the bugs tacker...)
