Python + Newspipe

P: n/a
Hello,

I'm trying to run _Newspipe_ but Python returns an error :

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
[root@kael root]# python2.3 /home/kael/newspipe/newspipe.py
newspipe.py - version 1.1.1 revision 1.42, Copyright (C) 2003-2004
Ricardo M. Reyes <re******@ufasta.edu.ar>

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/kael/newspipe/newspipe.py", line 1484, in ?
MainLoop()
File "/home/kael/newspipe/newspipe.py", line 1323, in MainLoop
config = LeerConfig()
File "/home/kael/newspipe/newspipe.py", line 895, in LeerConfig
for attr in ini.options('NewsPipe'):
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.3/ConfigParser.py", line 240, in options
raise NoSectionError(section)
ConfigParser.NoSectionError: No section: 'NewsPipe'
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Unfortunately, I'm new to Linux (RedHat9) and to Python (2.3) and I'm
not able to understand this error message.

Could someone enlighten me ? O:-)

Thank you very much.

1. Read about ConfigParser here:

http://docs.python.org/lib/module-ConfigParser.html

2. Read the traceback from the bottom up: (1) The exception is
raised in ConfigParser.py on line 240 in function/method options.
(2) This was called from newspipe.py on line 895 in
function/method LeerConfig.

3. It's looking for a section named "NewsPipe" in your
options/config file. Check your config file. Is that
section name misspelled? Is the section missing? Does
the NewsPipe documentation tell you where the config file
should be and what it's name is? If not, look in newspipe.py.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very for this link.

Should the changes be made in the newspipe/* directory only ? Or should
I manage the ConfigParser.py ?

According to the Newspipe documentation
http://newspipe.sourceforge.net/#configuration, only the 'smtp_server'
and 'opml' lines are absolutely needed in newspipe.py.

Please, see newspipe.py below:
----------------------------------
[NewsPipe]
log_console=1
smtp_server=smtp.free.fr
opml=test.opml
sleep_time=30
check_online=http://www.google.com
----------------------------------

Do you think any lines are missing ?

Unless, it could come from the OPML file ?
Hope this helps.


Yes. But, unfortunately, not enough - it's hard to be a newbie. :-/

I thank you very much for your help.

You are misreading something. On the page you referenced above,
it clearly states in "Installation" that the file in question
is named "newspipe.ini", not "newspipe.py". You are confusing
the two, since what you show above is not "newspipe.py" or,
if it is, somebody has messed up...

newspipe.py should contain Python code, newspipe.ini should
contain configuration info like you show above.

If you *have* a newspipe.ini file that contains the above,
but are still getting the error message you reported earlier,
then the program is not *finding* your newspipe.ini file and
you should probably contact the author(s) for assistance,
since this is not a Python issue.

Sorry. The lines above are from *newspipe.ini* not newspipe.py. Thanks
for pointing the confusion.

I'm going to contact him. Thank you very much for your reply.

Cheers.

I contact the author and there is a bug in the version I'm using.

Now it works by running

$ cd /newspipe
$ python ./newspipe.py

Instead of

$ python /newspipe/newspipe.py

Thanks for your help.
