Hi, nice software but not usable actually for everybody.
I have a widescreen (1920x1200). Using flickr I've tried the tag : wallpaper,1920x1200.
webilder founds the photos containing theses tags but downloads the one with the smaller resolution. And pictures of 800x600 are too ugly on 1920x1200.

I have Kubuntu edgy.

For the install script to work I had to install python-gnome-1.2 and python-gnome2-extras packages.

The program itself still does not work, in konsole I got the following error message:
ImportError: No module named PIL

The python-imaging package was missing.
Visited the homepage, added the repositories, and installed according to the instructions there.
Now it works. Thanks!

If I click the icon in the systray and select anything from the menu nothing happens.

When I run webilder_desktop from the cli I get this error:

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/webilder/uitricks.py:8: GtkWarning: gtk_tree_row_reference_new: assertion `GTK_IS_TREE_MODEL (model)' failed

gnomevfs.NotSupportedError: Unsupported operation

What do I need to do?

To disable gnomevfs in Webilder you can edit the file /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/WebilderDesktop.py and delete lines 12-15 (these lines should be about gnomevfs), and add the following line instead:

gnomevfs = None

In the next version, I'll add proper detection for this case.

Is it possible that your home directory is located on a remote machine and mounted via NFS or Samba?

If not, please send me more information about your system: distribution, and versions of the packages gnome-python and gnome-python-extras.

Never mind, it works now. I rebooted my machine this morning and after the reboot it worked.

Why? I don't know. Doesn't matter.

Nice piece of software. Can't "Browse Collection" from the right click menu though. Everything else seems to work fine, so far.

Wish Flickr had better pictures. I'm getting quite a bunch of personal pictures of people and many of the supposedly "interesting" photos are, imho, quite uninteresting.

Is there any way I could change the source of the pictures being downloaded? Deviant art, for instance, or even kde-look wallpapers.

Thanks for a nifty tool.

Thanks.

I'll add more sources for wallpapers in the upcoming versions. DeviantArt, kde-look/wallpapers and gnome-look/wallpapers are in top priority.
