  • For the past two weeks I've been having trouble getting into the program.  I can get to the login screen, but when I click "login" the dialog box disappears and nothing else happens.  I get no error output to the terminal.  It's happening on two different computers, both running different versions of Ubuntu (it previously worked on both versions).  I was able to create a new account, but the same thing happens when I try to log in.  Any suggestions?

      Which version of PyScrabble are you running?

       
    • Right, that was the problem.  I upgraded and now it works.

    Hey friend, this problem cropped up again in version 1.6.2-4 installed from the package manager on 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 on a Pentium 4 - 2.6 Ghz, HP Desktop, 1 GB RAM machine.  Same report as above.  Program appears to die after clicking the "login" button.  Also, no error output when launching from the command line.  Any advice or workaround would be much appreciated.

    Thanks for sharing your talents and for sharing this application.

  • The same happens to me.  I have 1.6.2 version of Pyscrabble and Ubuntu 10.04.

    The pyscrabble.califorest.com server crashed on 8/15/10.  Due mostly to time pressure from work, it took until now to get it up and running agaiin.  The good news is that it is not a single, physical server now; I rebuilt it as a virtual machine in a redundant VMWare ESXi infrastructure. 

    I have been unable so far to recover the database from the previous server (I have it, but it's corrupted, and the fstools can't fix it).  Since all the users and games are in that database, we are starting anew.  :-(

    last couple of weeks mine has been exiting at login too.
    Have tried purging, deleting config files and re-installing, creating new accounts - no go. Still exits at login.
    No error message is given. It simply exits back to command line.
    Using Ubuntu 11.10

    The califorest server was out of disk space.  That happens every year or so if I don't keep an eye on it, and this last has been a very busy year at work.  It is fixed now; sorry for the inconvenience!
