Album Cover Art Downloader does not start

Today I've run into my first problem caused by upgrading Ubuntu to version 7.04 - Album Cover Art Downloader (version 1.6.0) stopped working.

If you try to run Album Cover Art Downloader (by typing albumart-qt in the console) and get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/albumart-qt", line 145, in 
File "/usr/bin/albumart-qt", line 77, in runGui

from pixmap import getPixmapForPath

open the /usr/lib/albumart/albumart_images.py and in the first or second line in the file add:

  1. I love you. I was running the windows version in VMware, unable to use it in Ubuntu. Thanks!

  2. Thanks! I got it working in no time at all!
