Any progress on this feature so far George? How about you @Patrick Perini ?

@George Edison would be pleased to hear. He was interested on implementation ideas, so maybe you would like to run your ideas by him at some point. :)

Slight problem...I've converted to Win7 now :| But I'm sure some XP user somewhere will be thanking you. Perhaps you could find/get someone with XP to test it for us :P I'd still be curious to know if the problem's been solved :)

Oh, I use Debian as my primary OS, as well as Windows. :P I hope soon you will extend all those nice features to the other OSs too. :)

No problems, happy to help. We've succeeded in getting it to work for both Debian 6.0 and Windows 7 now, at least for me. The last remaining OS environment to troubleshoot was going to be WinXP, however, my ailing HHD finally gave in yesterday so I won't have the WinXP environment to test it in. Haven't tried it in Ubuntu yet, but I'll be sure to let you know if I have any issues. I'm a multi-booting power user, so I appreciate the cross-platform support. :)

I don't know how to explain this but after uninstalling and reinstalling yet again, it worked! Well this saves you the headache. Let me suggest an unrelated improvement though. On relaunching a second instance of StackApplet, a second instance will display on the notification tray. Not sure if this behaviour is desirable as redundant instances can occur.

stackapplet_1.5_i686_setup.exe was what I used...I guess this is not it?

In WinXP there is no process taking up port 8140. Can I launch StackApplet from within terminal to see errors? If so, what command do I use? Basically launching it via the start menu, nothing appears to happen...

No, Firefox 3.6.12.

Sounds good. Though, if you want me to try anything in the meantime, just let me know. I'll try vacating the port and seeing if it makes a difference...

No problem, thanks for programming StackApplet. :) Do you think the problem is the same with Windows XP? I had a similar issue with launching StackApplet in Windows...

In System Monitor I found the process "python usr/bin/system-config-printer-applet" - this was the only python process running. When I stopped this process and launched StackApplet, it worked. It appeared some vital printing applet was occupying the port/address. Can you make StackApplet use a different, vacant port?

Ok, so it's giving the same error: address already in use. How do I vacate the address? What command?

I tried visiting localhost:8140 and whilst I could see a heading "StackApplet Preferences", all that appears on the page are empty bullet points, an empty dropdown menu, radio buttons and check boxes with no accompanying text. Can you suggest anything else? I'm happy to provide any info you think might be helpful and diagnosing the problem.

I can't see anything in the notification area, especially not the stackapp icon. Other active programs in the notification area include Thunderbird and Compiz Fusion. Do you perceive any conflict here?
