If you are looking for a working command line software that helps you retrieving your activation bytes from your audible account, please try audible-cli.

I can run the software with firefox mode or with chromedriver debug mode, but the activation bytes it returns are wrong (differing from what audible-cli returns, different from what I got many years ago, different from what works).

It might be that upstream has not followed up with changes at Amazon/ Audible and extracts wrong information?

@dreieck thanks for the hint to audible-cli. There is probably no point in having this package maintained, as the upstream seems abandoned.

I am disowning since it seems no longer to work properly. See this comment and this comment.

@pokulo: Thanks for the hint. After applying the patch, I get other issues:

@dreieck that problem is appearently known upstream. There is at least one PR fixing this: https://github.com/inAudible-NG/audible-activator/pull/55/files

Looks like this project is not maintained anymore.

An idea would be to add the changes of that PR as a patch here intil it is merged.

dreieck commented on 2023-04-26 09:13 (UTC)

Actually, running this software currently fails for me with

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/tmp/tmp.ihz72yyyRX/./audible-activator.py", line 202, in <module>
    fetch_activation_bytes(username, password, options)
  File "/tmp/tmp.ihz72yyyRX/./audible-activator.py", line 102, in fetch_activation_bytes
    search_box = driver.find_element_by_id('ap_email')
AttributeError: 'WebDriver' object has no attribute 'find_element_by_id'

Since upstream has not enabled issue reporting in their repository, I cannot report the issue there.

Switched the package to python3.

Thanks for all the comments!

pokulo commented on 2021-01-28 08:54 (UTC)

Please switch to Python3. This worked for me:

$ diff old/PKGBUILD new/PKGBUILD
6,7c6,7
< pkgver=0.2+r3.20181128.2e97c84
< pkgrel=4
---
> pkgver=0.2+r4.20200714.35cd22e
> pkgrel=1
20,23c20,23

<   "python2-selenium"
<   "python2-urllib3"
---
>   "python"
>   "python-requests"
>   "python-selenium"
>   "python-urllib3"

The only new this is seemingly this log entry:

rm: cannot remove '/tmp/tmp.a6pumjLSYS/__pycache__': Is a directory

But I dont see any harm in this.

You can try to switch the package to Python 3. It should work according to upstream.
