Angry wxPython for SuSE 9.1 personal


Does anybody know how to get wxPython on to SuSE? I know you need wxGTK but I have now downloaded about 25 other things to try and get bastard GTK+2 working in the first place!

I think the package is named python-wxGTK and can be downloaded from any SUSE-mirror.

To use a SuSE mirror with Yast, follow these instructions:

Yast -> Software ->Change source of installation -> Add -> FTP

Server: ftp.suse.com (or any mirror )
Directory: pub/suse/i386/9.1 (you need to adapt this path if you are using a mirror)

Install all packages the usual way (Yast -> Software -> Install and Remove Software)

Thanks man that was most excellent help. Theres just one more thing now I need to get python to actually look for the modules in the site-packages folder. Does anybody now how to do that? I guess you have to change the PYTHON_PATH thing but I don't know how to.

I am not sure how the name of this variable is, but you could set it in /etc/profile.local (if not existent, just create it).
Code:
export PYTHON_PATH=/path/to/your/modules
If the modules are on more than one location, separate the paths with a ':'
