When starting hamster-time-tracker on a fresh install, it complains with some obscure error message:

ERROR:dbus.proxies:Introspect error on :1.146:/org/gnome/Hamster: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

After checking whether the services run, I found hamster-service dead and tried to relaunch it, failing with:
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/share/hamster-applet/hamster.db'

Fix for this is to put a database into place, at ~/.local/share/hamster-applet/hamster.db . I however do not know how to solve this with packaging.

Related upstream bug: (there it says it's an install (packaging) issue
This task depends upon
