I have recently installed StackApplet Install stackapplet and I want to add my account to it. However, I can't do so as I am unable to select a site properly. See this screenshot:

When I press on the option Site nothing appears. Instead, a blank dock appears displaying nothing. Clicking on the dock causes it to disappear.


This is a bug that was fixed literally an hour ago. Assuming you are using the PPA as described in this question, you will need to simply wait a few hours for the new version to be published to the PPA.

For informational purposes, here’s a screenshot showing the 404…
