gDesklets - ImportError: No module named gnome.ui


Hello!
I'm trying to get gDesklets running on my fluxbox desktop. After looking through many threads on this forum, I decided to install most of the libraries from packages, although the last one, gnome-python compile from sources. ./configure told me that these modules will be build on my system:

gnome
gnome.ui
gnome.canvas
gnome.vfs
gconf
bonobo
bonobo.activation
bonobo.ui

As you can see, there *is* a module gnome.ui, but after I make&checkinstall gnome-python, gDesklets still gives me this error. I suppose, that python can't find that module, so my question is: how to tell it where to look for that particular mod?

Ok, I've just found a solution:

export PYTHONPATH="/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/:$PYTHONPATH"

Unfortunately, now there is another error:

ImportError: No module named gobject

Any ideas?

It seems that I've messed up something. There *is* everything required by gDesklets in my

/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/

I have gnome, bonobo and gobject there, but even though I set the path like this:

export PYTHONPATH="/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/:$PYTHONPATH"

it still gives me an error:

ImportError: could not import bonobo.ui

If you take a look at this, you will see, that it's not the "can't find this or that file" error. Apparently, it sees bonobo, but can't load it, and I really don't know why. If anyone, anyone can help, please! I'd really like to make my desktop unique, without installing gnome/kde.

for what it's worth, you went from

export PYTHONPATH="/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/:$PYTHONPATH"

to

export PYTHONPATH="/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/:$PYTHONPATH"

copying gobject.so from 2.3 to 2.4 takes away that error message and gives me this one:

root@localhost:/home/perry# gdesklets start
You need a recent version of PyGTK to run this program.
Traceback (most recent call last):

(copy made from 2.3 to 2.4 site-packages dirs)

conclusion:

gdesklets is probably ready for slackware 10.1 or 10.2 but not 10.0....

cheers
