thank you! it it really nice, it was not comfortable to send everytime online from the webpage...

btw I ran it on Pardus, and had no problems
++ I just changed the voipdiscount settings in sendsms.py for lowratevoip
(easily replace all "voipdiscount" to "lowratevoip") and worked without any problems...

so thank you again

 Error on login

after installing, pysmssend shows up the following error:
pysmssend -a "lowratevoip" -u "XXXXXXXX" -p "XXXXXXXX" -n "XXXXXXXXXXX"
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/pysmssend", line 426, in <module>
if len(iter) < 4:#if arguments are less than 4
TypeError: object of type 'dictionary-itemiterator' has no len()

Btw. Your install script copies files to /usr/local.
That doesn't work here, too
Oh, login to lowrateip fails also in GUI, but works in browser.
Any suggestions?

1) I think you should not use " " except the text part. As far as I can see you didnt secified a text . so you sould use
pysmssend -a lowratevoip -u bla -p bla -n 123 "Hello"
Give that a try.

2) You used the installed script? Its copies everything on /usr/share/pysmssend. I think the deb packages copies everything on /usr/local

3) I am working on login error. I didnt have a lowrate account so I create one and I am trying to fix the problem. Thank you very much

I ll write back when the new version is available

Hi again,
sorry, but commandline returns the same error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/pysmssend", line 426, in <module>
if len(iter) < 4:#if arguments are less than 4
And login still doesn't work from GUI!?
Do I need credits for being able to login?

I didn't mean the program, but the python modules get installed to /usr/local/lib/python2.5, where they will not be found by interpreter.
So I changed your install script to:
python setup.py install --prefix=/usr

Oh my god that is so weird

No you dont need to have credits to login. It works fine on me

What distro are you using?

I assume that you are using the install/uninstall scripts

As far as I know python modules are in /usr/lib/python2.X

At least this is the path on Gentoo/Arch/Debian I checked

The uninstall script assumes that modules are installed on the above path and not on /usr/local/etcetc

So please delete the modules from /usr/local/ etc and also delete the /usr/share/pysmssend folder and run install.sh once more. But please make sure that you deleted the modules because the bugfixes concern all the modules

Let me know and thanks for the debugging :)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
