Oblogout not working

Sun Jun 17, 2018 8:59 am

I can't get oblogout ( to work.
I get this error message when entering oblogout in the terminal:

Code: Select all

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/oblogout", line 97, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/bin/oblogout", line 92, in main
    app = OpenboxLogout(config, local_mode)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oblogout/", line 85, in __init__
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oblogout/", line 141, in __init_window
    pilimg = Image.fromstring("RGB", wh, pb.get_pixels())
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/PIL/", line 2106, in fromstring
    "Please call frombytes() instead.")
NotImplementedError: fromstring() has been removed. Please call frombytes() instead.
I'm using Raspian Lite with openbox.

The software you are trying to use was archived (This repository has been archived by the owner. It is now read-only.)
And it is probably no longer supported by the author.
The software is trying to use a call to a function in PIL (Pillow) which was removed a long time ago.
Either fix it yourself (the backtrace is providing valuable clues) or find an alternative.
