I am using Quickly to make a browser application. However,when i write the url example:www.google.com , and press enter. it does not go to the site.

This is my Python program:

# -*- Mode: Python; coding: utf-8; indent-tabs-mode: nil; tab-width: 4 -*-
# This file is in the public domain

import gettext
from gettext import gettext as _

from gi.repository import Gtk, WebKit # pylint: disable=E0611
import logging
logger = logging.getLogger('ubrowser')

from ubrowser_lib import Window
from ubrowser.AboutUbrowserDialog import AboutUbrowserDialog
from ubrowser.PreferencesUbrowserDialog import PreferencesUbrowserDialog

# See ubrowser_lib.Window.py for more details about how this class works
class UbrowserWindow(Window):
    __gtype_name__ = "UbrowserWindow"

    def finish_initializing(self, builder): # pylint: disable=E1002
        """Set up the main window"""
        super(UbrowserWindow, self).finish_initializing(builder)

        self.AboutDialog = AboutUbrowserDialog
        self.PreferencesDialog = PreferencesUbrowserDialog

        # Code for other initialization actions should be added here.

        self.refreshbutton = self.builder.get_object('refresh button')
        self.urlentry = self.builder.get_object('urlentry')
        self.scrolledwindow = self.builder.get_object('scrolledwindows') 
        self.webview = WebKit.WebView()
    def on_refreshbutton_clicked(self,widget): 
    def on_urlentry_activate(self,widget):     
        Url = widget.get_text()

what do i need to write to make it work?? and what i did wrong?

No idea what you are asking. Look at How to Ask a question to state you problem more clearly –  Meer Borg Apr 22 '13 at 7:40
Hi Daniel, Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Please ask a separate question for further problems, do not deviate too much from your original question. Thanks! –  Aditya Apr 22 '13 at 11:09
BTW, I think this python code is after you had solved the problem. I would request you to edit it to reflect the code that was actually causing the problem. –  Aditya Apr 22 '13 at 11:15
no. thats the problem –  Daniel Apr 22 '13 at 13:44
Please don't edit your questions constantly. Now it's very confusing because your question changes. For your current problem, WebView requires a full uri, see my answer here for more details: askubuntu.com/a/282578/20837 –  Timo Apr 22 '13 at 14:31

Quickly use python to run your application. The error you see come from the python interpreter, because line 39 of file UbrowserWindow.py contain

on_urlentry_activate Url-widget.get_text()

As there is a whitespace between on_urlentry_activate and Url, the python interpreter search for a variable named Url, which it found not. Perhaps you typed a variable name with a whitespace in front ?

But that's not all : the dash betwwen Url and widget will be interpreted as a minus symbol.

Never use whitespace, dash, plus, star... In your variable names. The only sensible choice is underscore (_)

On a side note, there is a Google+ community on Quicly where you might find help...
