Problem with python program--gtk.glade?


I've been trying to install this simple diet management program, but I keep getting errors. The install file says to simply run ./install.py with root permissions, but when I do, I get the following output:
Code:
root:/usr/src/shrinkingman# ./install.py

The program does install and run, but it refuses to accept any input. From the above, it looks like it's trying to find a library called gtk.glade, but no such file seems to exist anywhere. I've installed every glade-related package that seems even remotely appropriate to no effect. An apt-file search also turned up no packages containing that file name. Have the gtk/glade file names have changed since the code was written or something?

Does anyone know what I can do to get this program running?

I feel like I've installed every package known to man trying to get this thing working. It's a little hard to be absolutely sure, because the Debian package names don't match the requirements listed on the page, but if it looks even vaguely similar to the requirements, I've installed it.

Nothing seems to have any effect at all.
