[Bug 374918] Re: Unable to launch Zeitgeist daemon


I found the problem: My Firefox profile is not located in
./mozilla/firefox but in somewhere in ~/Dropbox, as specified in the
profiles.ini file. I'm currently working on a fix.

Bug description:
I've pulled the latest revision of the Zeitgeist codebase several times during the past weeks (including the latest 559) but when launching zeitgeist-daemon.sh, it keeps crashing with the following error message:

...@...:~/gnome-zeitgeist$ ./zeitgeist-daemon.sh
Are you using Firefox?
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./src/zeitgeist-daemon.py", line 15, in <module>
    from zeitgeist_engine.zeitgeist_dbus import RemoteInterface

    datasink = DataSinkSource()

    shutil.copy2(self.historydb[0],  self.loc)
IndexError: list index out of range

I deleted ~/.[Zz]eitgeist before running the command, but this didn't help. I use Ubuntu Jaunty 64-bit with the latest updates applied.
