@chris_c_: You seem to be doing the lion's share of work on this project now. Why not just fork the pettazz repo and apply the updates?? Pettazz doesn't seem overly interested any more.

@wardmundy Good point. Nick merged the previous fix in March right away, this is the first time he's gone missing for almost a week now, he might just be on vacation without laptop and without email notifications on the phone, some people are that way. Giving it a couple of days and if no reply, we have no choice except to fork it and Nick can be invited as a member with commit privileges. The reason to be reluctant to fork a repo on github is you lose the history of all the issues reported in the past on his repo, so you lose that knowledge base to search on and build on. Keeping it alive is a good thing, it's a good little app and very handy for automating the goodness of GV. As long as you don't mind zero privacy as GV shares all text and voice with any authorized entity who pays them, what a world, same as for all phone companies though.

Haha.. again. I don't believe they're intentionally breaking the app on purpose. They're just making their GVoice pages use more and more of their framework's auto generated javascript so that it feels more and more like a mobile smart phone app in any browser, while this python app is made to process HTML.

New error stacktrace:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./google_voice_sms.py", line 20, in <module>
voice.login(username, password)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/googlevoice/voice.py", line 75, in login
galx = re.search(r"type=\"hidden\"\s+name=\"GALX\"\s+value=\"(.+)\"", content).group(1)
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'group'

Please let us know if there is an update to correct this.

Yes @Captain Mike - we fixed this recent issue - GV removed a variable from the page - try this version:

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/EspaceNetworks/pygooglevoice
cd pygooglevoice
python setup.py install
cp -p bin/gvoice /usr/bin/.
pip install --upgrade BeautifulSoup
exit


For any OS where pip is not installed, you can install pip (yum install pip or apt install pip), or do:
easy_install -U BeautifulSoup

I have an error while running the setup.py script within python 2.7:

What would I need to do to get the install to work?

I was able to fix the SyntaxError mentioned above on line 85 as follows:
content = self.__do_page('login', {'smsToken': smsToken, 'service': "grandcentral", )) #'GALX': galx})
with content = self.__do_page('login', {'smsToken': smsToken, 'service': "grandcentral", 'GALX': galx})

For those running Incredible PBX/Fax for Raspberry Pi 3 or Pi Zero W, here's the simple update procedure. Login with SSH as root and issue the following commands. Then logout (exit) and log back in with SSH. Done.
Code:
chattr -i /etc/pbx/.update-guiU25
rm /etc/pbx/.update-guiU25

In case anyone was trying to use the 2-step authentication, it's broken, and appears to need rewriting, in light of the new version of GVoice.

Now is as good time as any to announce that I invite a everyone who is using this software and enjoying my recent bug fixes and feature additions, to visit my gofundme page, where anyone who is interested in supporting my serious efforts to fix and develop this software further, can make a contribution to help cover my running costs.

Thank you to everyone who will support. It's because of you that I can do this and make this software work again!

@chris_c_ Thought this might provide a clue. When I chose to try the login again, I got this:
Code:
Login failed. Retry?[Y/n] y
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gvoice", line 79, in <module>
    login()
  File "/usr/bin/gvoice", line 55, in login
    login(None, None, batch)
  File "/usr/bin/gvoice", line 49, in login
    voice.login(options.email,options.passwd)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/googlevoice/voice.py", line 76, in login
    gxf = re.search(r"type=\"hidden\"\s+name=\"gxf\"\s+value=\"(.+)\"", content).group(1)
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'group'

Sorry I have no idea what to do with the following stack trace. It just started happening yesterday afternoon. Yesterday morning pygoogle works fine though.

Could you post this on:
https://github.com/EspaceNetworks/pygooglevoice/issues/new
1. What's the content of the text message being sent by your "send_mass_text()" function (remove personal information)?
2. The source of "send_mass_text()" ?
3. Is anyone of your recipients replying to your mass text message?
