Installing Deluge On Mac

Postby ads1018 » Mon Sep 10, 2012 6:04 pm

I'm trying to install deluge on my Mac (Mountain Lion). I'm following the readme instructions here ->

I did the build and install. However, when I trying running deluge I get an error "ImportError: No module named chardet".

Any ideas?

For the record, a couple of weeks ago I tried to build Deluge on Mountain Lion w/o success. GTK-OSX not ready yet I think. I'll try again soon.
The latest Lion build on github works on Mountain Lion.
