Trying to upgrade from FF 3.5 to 3.5.1 on Jaunty using Ubuntuzilla 4.6.2. Errors out with 'ERROR: could not get DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS, notification cannot be shown.' The command line I used was 'ubuntuzilla.py -p firefox -a checkforupdategui' (with appropriate redirection). Log file attached.

    Hi,
    Hmm, yea, the old code to get at the dbus session was quite a kludge.
    I have updated it to use the python dbus interface (which did not exist at the time the original was written - hence, the kludge).
    Please give it a try and see if it gives you any trouble - if not, I'll make a release.
    Attaching the .deb files (both i386 and amd64, just in case, since you didn't specify your architecture.)

    attached some new versions - fixed another bug, and also realized that i still need to get the dbus session manually when running from cron. but now i'm using a better method than before, so should work better. :)

    Thanks for the quick response! I tried 4.6.3 rc2. (Using i386 version, btw.) DBUS errors gone, but still some others. See the file ubuntuzilla-4.6.3-rc2-errors.txt.

    hmm, weird - this worked just fine on my intrepid install...

    will try to test with a jaunty livecd in a bit.

    in the meantime, some questions:
    does this happen all the time, or just occasionally?
    does it happen only when running from cron, or also directly from a terminal?
    if you run " notify-send 'bla' " from a terminal, does that work to give you a notification?
