I am using Ubuntu 6.10 on Kernel 184.108.40.206 and I am trying to install Tovid. I am really anxious to see it work. I have been transcoding AVI files to MPG format and then using Qdvdauthor to make the VIDEO_TS files to burn to DVD. I have heard that Tovid will do this with a GUI front end.
I went to http://tovid.sourceforge.net/download/ubuntu/
and downloaded the script file and ran it
here is what the script file says.
Downloading and installing all dependencies for tovid.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install mplayer mencoder mjpegtools ffmpeg python python-dev python-wxgtk2.6 python-imaging imagemagick dvdauthor dvd+rw-tools vcdimager transcode sox normalize-audio txt2tags lsdvd python-cairo
wget -c http://tovid.sourceforge.net/downloa...jdong1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i tovid_0.29-0jdong1_all.deb
Downloading the tovid icon, the mkiso script, and the tovid menu entry.
wget -c http://images.wikia.com/tovid/images...Tovid_icon.png
wget -c http://tovid.sourceforge.net/downloa...l_script/mkiso
wget -c http://tovid.sourceforge.net/downloa.../tovid.desktop
Moving the tovid icon to the correct folder.
sudo mv Tovid_icon.png /usr/share/icons/
Moving the menu entry to the correct folder.
sudo mv tovid.desktop /usr/share/applications/
Giving the mkiso script executable permissions.
chmod +x mkiso
Moving the mkiso script to the correct folder.
sudo mv mkiso /usr/bin/
Removing debian package (not needed anymore).
You have successfully installed tovid. If it is not in the menus, the command for the tovid GUI is: tovidgui"
It completed without errors and gave me the successfully installed message. The command “Tovid” showed up in my menu bar sure enough.
When I ran the application nothing happened so I tried the
“tovidgui” command and got the following error.
“Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/tovidgui", line 22, in ?
ImportError: No module named wxversion
There was an error importing the 'wx' libraries. The above
output should help you find what went wrong. Re-installing
wxPython 2.6 (or upgrading from wxPython 2.4 to 2.6) may
help. Consult the tovid homepage (tovid.org) for further
Sorry, 'tovidgui' will not work.”
I checked out which version of python-wxversion through synaptic pakage manager and I have and I have python-wxversion 220.127.116.11.1.5.
I ran “cat /usr/local/bin/tovidgui” and got the following output.

from libtovid.gui.frames import TovidFrame
TovidGUI = wx.PySimpleApp()
#frame = MiniEditorFrame(None, wx.ID_ANY, "tovid GUI")
frame = TovidFrame(None, wx.ID_ANY, "tovid GUI")
I hope this makes sense to someone and would appreciate anybodies help. I am truly stumped.
