OK :) waiting.as the drawing of lines(with IP) hadnt worked with previous versions.only if I restarted gdm and re-login can I see some line(single line) drawn.
also,my resolution is very low : 800x600@85Hz. do look at this problem :) best of Luck for your project!

The single line deal...what projection are you using? And is that single line going to the west coast of Africa (i.e. lat/long: 0, 0)? It's possible the lookups aren't working (causing the entire set to point to one spot near Africa), or it's possible that you've got Monitor_0_projection=None set and it's just not showing the earth in it's entirety. I've noticed that California, USA seems to be a hotspot for sites, and I get a strange "single line" for like 4-5 connections. This isn't a bug...those sites are all literally in the same place! But if that's ALL you see, it's likely some other problem...

^whatever projection I try,it isnt working,currently
Monitor_0_projection=mercator

unlike @gary's screenshot with multiple lines drawn,in my Debian GNome-2.22,the plots are not seen.if I restart X I can see the background with that line connecting to different parts,for eg;I tried ftp`ing a japan server and the line was seen after I re-login,restarting gdm.
Is there any dependencies missing :confused:

the plottings are not shown on real time.it is some Gnome issue may be.
although the terminal shows "setting wallpaper" every 15sec or so :-|

You have arcs turned off in your config, and I haven't released a fix to check for that setting in the xplanet config generation step. The simplest workaround would be to set Monitor_0_arcs=True in your GeoXPlanet.conf until I can get 0.4.3 out the door.

Done . And now it works like a charm . Now a couple of questions.
The traces on the map go out of bounds or in other words off the map. How can I get this to work with a full map on the screen :). Is that mode available in configgui I'm using the template called rocket357. So in other words it works fine for me on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 64 bit :D . Once Prakash writes me a hardy heron DVD :D I'll try it out there too!

Monitor_0_projection=mercator

is the setting you need in your GeoXPlanet.conf file (in the src dir). Rectangular works, too, and I linked a site with screenshots of the different values a few posts back...http://cweiske.de/xplanet-projections/

The templates aren't working yet (doh?). That's a feature I'm currently working on (the rocket357 template is pretty sweet, but I haven't had a chance to get it working since 0.4.x uses a different architecture than the 0.3.x series). I'm planning on having that out soon (Am I starting to sound like a broken record? hahaha). Templates (at least some of them) require ImageMagick, and they sometimes bomb out with strange colorations and "incorrect data checks" on the image files. Having it set right now won't hurt, though...

Praka: I'm not sure what's going on with your setup. I'll set up that Debian/Gnome vmware image and see what I can come up with. My sincerest apologies for not being able to help you yet...but know that I haven't forgotten about you! Thanks for being patient with me.

Heh thanks for the response. Is it possible to get it as a Window also? Just curious :).

Umm, possibly...let me look into that =)

Ok, I went ahead and uploaded GeoXPlanet-0.4.3 (without the MaxMind data). It should be available shortly.

Few changes i would like to Suggest regarding look and feel.

1) Change the Map type to Political
It looks much better, as its easy to identify Countries
View attachment 1721

2) Currently Alaska region in North America is shown in the Right, by this North America is splited into two parts. which creates confusion

You can overwrite temp/images/earth.jpg with whatever file you wish, and it will be used to draw the background (see http://xplanet.sourceforge.net/maps.php for a nice listing of maps). The North America split, though, I believe is caused by having your Monitor_0_latitude/longitude set to your home (which will center the map on your home location). Try setting those back to 0.0 and see if that fixes it.

Also, if you want to identify countries better, you can set Monitor_0_showNations=True. This will outline all of the countries (though it won't color them in or label them)

I set Monitor_0_latitude/longitude =0 but now the arc is broken:|


[update]
Messed a little more with GeoXPlanet
changed the Color of Arcs from white to Green & purple.
It looks much better now, IMO this should be default

I've seen quite a few images cropping up where traceroutes are resulting in a "hop" being placed off the coast of Africa. I'll dig into this tonight (after my Debian/Gnome testing) and see if I can figure out a cause.

Screenshots look good, guys...let me know if any other major issues creep up.

Praka123: what *exact* version of Linux/Gnome are you using? (i.e. Ubuntu i386 7.04 Gnome 2.22) I'm going to attempt to set up a vmware image that resembles your setup as closely as possible when I test it tonight.

Not sure if this will help but I am using Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) 64 bit with Gnome 2.20.1 . However I think Prakash recently upgrade gnome to the latest which should be 2.22?

Code:
self.ipPort = int(ipPort)
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ''

This error is because of IPv6 connections, as naming in IPv6 is not on base 10 as we used to do in IPv4.
Example of a Ipv6 address 2001:0db8:3c4d:0015:0000:0000:abcd:ef12. hence a integer data type is not suited here.
Do investigate further

Ahh, I see. Thanks for pointing this out. I completely disable ipv6 on most of my machines, so I wouldn't have thought to check this.

Thanks!

I don't see how that's possible (that people would say that), though many "computer people" are highly misunderstood =)

Praka123:

I'm upgrading on of my vmware images from etch to sid right now. I'll post more as I get the testing done.

Obligatory MaxMind notice:

"This product (GeoXPlanet) includes GeoLite data created by MaxMind, available from
http://maxmind.com/"

I got a response from MaxMind today. It seems the company determined that the vagueness of the GeoLiteCity database license (at least what I interpreted as vagueness) did not restrict me from redistributing their dataset in modified format (i.e. imported into a SQLite binary file), and there are no "export restrictions" against their dataset.

GeoXPlanet-0.4.3-SQLite-Maxmind will be out soon.

@praka123: The vmware image upgrade last night got interrupted. I'll try it again tonight (or more likely just download/install Debian Sid to begin with) and attempt to replicate the issues you've posted about.

Edit: The test (using Ubuntu 8.04 i386 Hardy Heron) went well, though I do see what's going on. The auto-launch (via Sessions) kept returning [0,0] for all connection lat/longs, giving a single line to (you guessed it) the west coast of Africa. I'll dig into it and see what's up (path issue, perhaps?) and put this fix in 0.4.4. As usual, thanks for reporting the problem, praka123...

Edit #2: The [0,0] failures during the initial test were due to using incorrect settings for the sqlite db. I switched to online (hostip.info) lookups, and everything is working. Instead of putting "/path/to/GeoXPlanet-0.4.3/src/GeoXPlanet.py" in your Session setting, put "xterm -e /path/to/GeoXPlanet-0.4.3/src/GeoXPlanet.py" in there and relog. That will bring up an xterm so you can see GeoXPlanet's output while it's running from Session. If it crashes, let me know.

Edit #3: The GeoXPlanetDB.py file has been modified. It seems that when you start GeoXPlanet manually, the path to find the SQLite db file is correct, but when launching it via "Sessions", the path is incorrect. Fix will be included in 0.4.4 (Though none of this helps with the problem you're currently having, praka123). I'm still investigating.

0.4.5 is out.

Changes:
1) xfce support is experimental
2) radius option added (thanks FraGGod)
3) reverse DNS lookups added (thanks again, FraGGod)
4) heavy restructure of the config (suggestion by Markus)
5) minor bugfixes

If any of you guys test it out again (particularly gnome and xfce), let me know how it goes...

Thanks!
