Description urcindalo 2008-05-26 11:10:46 UTC
Qtiplot's config files are installed in /urs/local/qtiplot. However, if this
directory is own by root:root and its permissions are drwxr-xr-x, qtiplot can't
create the files qtiplotrc.pyc and qtiUtil.pyc inside it for a regular user at
launch time. I had to manually modify the permissions of /urs/local/qtiplot to drwxrwxrwx.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

I've just committed an improved ebuild to cvs. It installs python files to /usr/lib/python<version>/site-packages and compiles them. This should fix the bug. Please check. Please rm -rf ~/.config/ProIndependent before starting qtiplot for the first time after updating to this new version. If it works, please, close the bug.

Yes, the bug is gone. Thanks very, very much.
