Awesome app, have been using it since 0.2.

Could you tell us what your metacity/emerald theme is please, it's rather tremendous (and the link to the gtk theme is also down).

Many thanks and keep up the good work!

The emerald theme used in the screenshots is te following: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Antract?content=82450

The GTK theme is MurrinaGraphite

The GTK theme mentioned earlier is from screenshots of an older version of LottaNZB.

Hello
Is use Lottanzb in Ubuntu and it works wel.
But now I will intall it on PCLinux OS Gnome 2008.1. I have Hellanzb already installed and it works.
When I do the follow command "./setup.py build" I got an error:
creating build/lib
error: could not create 'build/lib': Permission denied
How do I solve this problem?

That sounds strange, since building should not require any permissions. Perhaps you can try to build as root.

just wrote a gtk application with the same aim. It's called myhella and can also be found at gtk-apps.org
It's does kinda the same but has some extra features

Thanks -- I've been looking for a GTK alternative to klibido for a while, but with bandwidth limit and SSL. This is fully functional for me, cheers.

Forgot to mention that bandwidth limit doesn't work, but I assume you are aware of it, and I don't expect more from an alpha. Keep up the good work anyways.

Ah well, I do know about it, but that's actually HellaNZB's fault. It doesn't support real bandwidth throttling, it just downloads and then stops for a second or so in order to get the requested average bandwidth use.

I too have wondered why no one else has created such an app. If I had the GTK skills I would have probably done the same.

I use Ubuntu and I had to make some changes to the scripts to get it to sort of work:

1. Ubuntu supports hellanzb via repository. To execute Hellanzb, only 'hellanzb' is used not 'hellanzb.py'

2. Could it not be possible to use the config file that already exists with hellanzb rather than having a separate one?

3. Does your app need the config file to have a specific construction? I copied my current config to the Lotta directory, but I always seem to get 'cannot bind to server' - even though I am making sure that the config file ahs the correct binding ip address: i.e. default is 0.0.0.0 changed to 127.0.0.1


Apart from those minor things - app looks nice and I will use it all the time when its a bit more stable.

ice.

Wow. I have been wondering for a while why nobody had taken on the task of providing a frontend for HellaNZB. Looks pretty good. I shall give it a try tonight.

I get the following error when I try to run:

hellanzb v0.13 (config = /home/gabe/.lottanzb/hellanzb.conf, daemonized)
Connected..
Error while getting server status! Maybe hellaNZB has shut down
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./lotta.py", line 660, in <module>
client = GUI()
File "./lotta.py", line 76, in __init__
self.getStatus()
File "./lotta.py", line 333, in getStatus
if self.mystatus['currently_downloading'] != self.downloadingBuffer:
AttributeError: 'GUI' object has no attribute 'mystatus'

Do I need to run lotta from the same dir. as Hella? Or is there something in one of the config files that I need to set so it will see Hella?

Thanks in advance. I'm pretty stoked about LottaNZB.

What happens if you run LottaNZB directly after that?

Can you please mail me on avirulence at gmail.com?

I'll try to find the solution, but I'll need your help when debugging.

I'm not sure what this is/does, but the look of it is awesome! What are you using to make it look like that? The "Leopard" like dock, the theme etc?

It's a front-end to HellaNZB, which downloads, repairs and extracts files downloaded from Usenet automatically. For more information about nzb files: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nzb

My theme consists of the following:
Icons: Created with the Tango-Generator: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Tango-Generator+2?content=55081

Gnome theme: Murrina Dark Eternal Blue: http://www.capc-online.net/2007/05/01/dark-eternal-blue/

Fonts: HeldustryFT (No idea where I got those)

Wallpaper: Request by chiwou: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/38080240/ and blue girl (but I don't know whose that is (probably from deviantart too)

Dock: Avant window navigator (latest SVN)

Have fun..
