Did you remember to load the GResource bundle you installed under your
datadir, when you start your Python application?

C libraries and applications can take advantage of constructor
functions called before main(), and the ability to embed the resources
into the binary; Python (and other languages) do not have support for
that, so you need to explicitly load the GResource.

In Python, you can use:

from gi.repository import Gio

datadir = ... # Set this one up from your configuration
resource = Gio.Resource.load(os.path.join(datadir, 'gnome-publisher',

This will load the bundle and register it.
