For those of you who want to avoid Python2 and GTK2, I made this package here:

It's a work-in-progress, and there's an ongoing effort to merge this to upstream (, but I don't know how long this will take. I made this package, tested it and it seems to work fine.

Can't tell you why or how but it is working right now.

Reinstalled both Fahcontrol and foldingathome while deleting everything file I had.

Thank you !

@tozedascoves Then I really don't know, I use this package myself every day haven't encountered that issue. I can only blame upstream, sorry.

@katt I do. Reinstalled it but I'm still having the same errors.

@tozedascoves Do you have gtk2 installed? I thought it would be covered by pygtk so I deleted it from depends. I'll add it back if that fixes it.

/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fah/ Warning: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed gtk.rc_reparse_all_for_settings(settings, True)

After a few seconds I get

ERROR on connection to Lost connection Connection lost

But everything is running. I can check that by going to and it is folding.

I see foldingathome package got an update that changed things. Should I change something to make fahcontrol work?

@RTheren This is still not handeled by fahcontrol, go to the foldingathome package for this (Where there is already a warning in place)

The old config was saved under /opt/fah/config.xml After update, it was moved to /etc/foldingathome/config.xml

You might need to copy/move the config from old path to new one.

@katt- You're probably right

@Buddlespit That should absolutely not be controlled by fahcontrol, it just connects to your folding@home client. Surely something must have gone wrong elsewhere.

EDIT: I see that the foldingathome package also got an update and changed a bunch of stuff, that might be where your problem lies.
