Blueproximity GUI won't start

    I just installed Blueproximity onto Ubuntu 11.04, configured it, then closed it. It started locking the screen with the phone 3 inches away from the Bluetooth adapter. So I went to open it up to change settings and the GUI won't start. Tried to run it from the CLI and got this:

    Using config file 'standard.conf'.
    /usr/share/blueproximity/ GtkWarning: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated
      self.wTree =

    What does this mean and how do I fix it?

    same issue here - any help appreciated.  If I look in System Monitor the process appears with Waiting Channel set to do_wait.  Do I need to change this?

    A quick note, you can get the original settings window to open by deleting ~/.blueproximity folder. You can do that by opening file browser, pressing ctrl+h(this is in Nautilus), and deleting the (originally hidden) folder.  "Joni Hanski, 06-06-2012"

    'standard.conf' is not a valid config file.
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/share/blueproximity/", line 1274, in <module>
    config = ConfigObj(os.path.join(conf_dir, _('standard') + '.conf'),{'create_empty':True,'file_error':False,'configspec':conf_specs})
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/", line 1230, in init
    self._load(infile, configspec)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/", line 1320, in _load
    raise error
    configobj.ConfigObjError: Parsing failed with several errors.
    First error at line 1.

    Any help is appreciated!
