Blocklist Importer plugin does not work
Last modified: 2008-03-28 13:15:39 EDT
Description of problem:
The Blocklist Importer plugin does not work after the most recent Deluge update.
The plugin starts to load but just hangs while it should be downloading the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time I open the program and try to load the plugin.
Thanks for the bug report.
Are you able to download the list directly? (E.g., try the URL with wget or your
Also, is it a specific list that you are having trouble with (if more than one)?
Or do all of them cause this hang? (E.g., if you disable all of them, one at a
time, does this issue vanish?)
I just tried it with my x86_64 setup and it seems to hang for a few seconds
while making the initial connection and query, but then it downloads the
blocklist as it should and everything else seems to work nominally. :o

This is me being silly; it only uses one list...
What I meant to ask was, If you change the list does this still occur?
Well, trying to answer your question has lead me to another problem with this
plugin instead of an answer.
It seems that once you have already entered a blocklist url for this plugin (and
btw I think I'm using the Emule list), the program won't let you get into the
plugin's preferences until the list is successfully loaded and installed. I've
even tried canceling the download but the 'preferences' box is still greyed out
So I don't really know where to go from here. :(
Hey, I think we can mark this bug as closed.
I went and deleted blocklist.conf from ~/.config/deluge which allowed me to
access the blocklist plugin preferences. I then entered the URL of the ipfilter
from the Deluge website and it seems to download and load just fine. I don't
know if my blocklist.conf got corrupted somehow or if Deluge had some problem
with the list I previously used but it's all good now.
