Scribus Generator hanging - Logging system problem
« on: February 25, 2016, 09:45:48 pm »
I'm trying to use Scribus Generator to add addresses to a newsletter and have been working my way through error messages (Tk not compiled into Python, etc.) but now it's just hanging when I tell it to generate.

The script is in my user directory and permissions seem OK, user has read/write to directory and files.

Scribus 1.5.2.svn
Python 2.7.10 (3.4.3 is also installed and is the system default)
Gentoo Linux

It seems like it may not be parsing logging.conf but I don't do Python, so I'll leave it to the experts. By running Scribus via console and running the script, I get this error message:

Exception in Tkinter callback
