h-client provides a desktop application for submitting device data for h-node.org, automatically finding data known to the operating system and checking if the device is already known on h-node. Laptops are currently unsupported, most other devices can be reported more easily using the client than with the Web interface.
You can download the client by typing the following command:
svn co svn://svn.savannah.nongnu.org/h-client/trunk/h-client
(they would most likely be already installed).
Make sure python-setuptools is installed in order to install the client:
sudo aptitude install python-setuptools
In order to install it type:
python setup.py install --user
and run it using:
(or just h-client if added ~/.local/bin to PATH).
You may need to do the following if you receive a "KeyError: 'hclient/mo/.'" error
cd ~/ && \ sudo apt-get install subversion checkinstall python-setuptools && \ svn co svn://svn.savannah.nongnu.org/h-client/trunk/h-client && \ cd h-client && \ version="0.$(svn log | grep r | cut -d ' ' -f1 | head -n1)" && \ sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" --pkgname h-client \ --pkgversion "$version~svn" --backup=no --default python setup.py install && sudo ldconfig

Note that as h-node is now being served with https, you will probably need to modify Client('h-node.org') to Client('https://h-node.org') in hclient/gtkclient.py or modify the Server URL in Preferences.
