Module pygtk not found [SOLVED]
« on: August 25, 2007, 08:03:44 am »
Hi all,

I am trying to make work Devede, a nice program to make dvd's.
This is the link to the program:
www.rastersoft.com/programas/devede.html
The program is written in python and the package does not contain any "configure" script and cannot be compiled as usual.
To install it it is necessary to run the "install.sh" script.
I did it and the program now appears in the "multimedia" menu but, unfortunately, it does not work.
Starting the program through a shell command returns a message similar to "Module pygtk not found".
The pygtk package is actually installed so I am not able to find a solution to this issue.
I tried installing/updating any package connected to python but I was not successful.
I do not know anything regarding python.
Can anyone help me to find a solution to this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Gijii

You already have a thread on the subject and a package has been prepared:
http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=4059.0

It should be up on the repo soon.

I've had that error before in the past.  I don't know exactly how I resolved it.  I think it was pycairo related as well.

Sorry, I did not want to make double posts on the same topic. That thread was to request the package, since I believe it would be a good application for Vector repo.
Meantime I was trying to make it work (thanks to everybody for being so quick in accepting my suggestion and preparing the package).
Unfortunately my knowledge of Python is really low and so I was unable to track the problem down.
Pycairo is installed. I encountered the same problem before and I installed pycairo and various other packages related to python, included pygtk.

Thanks

Maybe I found the solution.
There are two packages named pygtk.
Pygtk version 2.8.6-i586-4vl58 (gtk Python wrappers)
Pygtk version 2.10.4-i586-4vl58
I installed the second package because I believed it was the same package in the most recent version.
I removed it and I installed the other and now Devede starts.
I have not yet tried it but I will do it soon.


Cheers
