XBL Status

Registered 2008-03-18 by Chris Hollenbeck

XBL Status allows you to view your Xbox Live friends list.

The program was created from ideas in this thread: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=520113.

Dependencies: python-beautifulsoup, python-clientform, python-glade2, python-gtk2, python-notify, python-dbus

The latest version is 0.4.1 and is available from the downloads section below. This version fixes login issues seen by 32-bit users of versions 0.4 and below.

To use Mumbles (http://www.mumbles-project.org), install the xblstatus plugin (located in the downloads section) and select DBus as the notification type in the XBL Status Preferences window. The plugin will need to be copied to "~/.mumbles/plugins/" and can be verified by running "mumbles -v".
