Hi all,

Recently I'm trying to package sugar for openSUSE. Glucose packages
have finished, and now I'm packaging Browse. But it failed to start
with following error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/sugar-activity", line 146, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/sugar-activity", line 141, in main
    instance = create_activity_instance(activity_constructor, activity_handle)
  File "/usr/bin/sugar-activity", line 34, in create_activity_instance
    activity = constructor(handle)
  File "/usr/share/sugar/activities/Browse.activity/webactivity.py",
line 153, in __init__
    activity.Activity.__init__(self, handle)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sugar3/activity/activity.py",
line 358, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sugar3/presence/presenceservice.py",
line 89, in get_activity
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/proxies.py", line 68, in __call__
    return self._proxy_method(*args, **keywords)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/proxies.py", line 140, in __call__
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/connection.py", line

    message, timeout)
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "GetActivity" with
signature "s" on interface "org.laptop.Telepathy.ActivityProperties"
doesn't exist

Browse is 137,  sugar-toolkit-gtk3 is 0.96.1.

I have no clue how to fix it, could someone figure me out what should I do?
