I am having trouble getting my activity to launch, and nothing is showing up in my logs. What gives?
It is advisable to begin the bulk of your activity's launch process in a call to gobject.idle_add.
import gobject ... class MyCoolActivity(activity.Activity): def __init__(self, handle): activity.Activity.__init__(self, handle) #wait a moment so that our debug console capture mistakes gobject.idle_add( self._initme, None ) def _initme( self, userdata=None ): #start writing your cool activity here
How do I retrieve the top level logging directory on my XO?
The following code prints out the standard directory for logging in sugar.
from sugar import logger ... print logger.get_logs_dir()
