pygtk-2.0 not found during install of gnome-python?


Hi, I'm ultimately trying to install gDesklets for GNOME 2.4, I'm using Slackware 9.1 full install, Python 2.0 and 2.3 have been installed, pygtk-2.0.0 is installed also, but when I do ./configure for gnome-python it produces an error stating that pygtk-2.0 is not in the path specified and to ammend the path?

I've tried searching for *pygtk* and so far I've found nothing, even though I've done " ./configure -> make -> make install " as the readme states and it all seems fine.

Another problem is the gnome-python readme file is 0 bytes, so no help to be found there either!

On a side note, Mozilla 1.4 will only open when I log into GNOME as root, not as a normal user? I click the icon and it does nothing.

Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated as always,

Yours,

Try running mozilla from an xterm and see what errors it comes up with.

I cannot help with the other problems.

Forgive me for asking, but I take it that the command is simply"/PATH/mozilla" ?

Load up a terminal window and type "mozilla" with or without quotes. That should give you an error message other than "bash: unknown command" or something similar. If it gives you that, then either mozilla is not in the path or is broken. Post the results either way.

That produces an error about invalid panel icons in a theme, but resetting to defaults doesn't work - I downloaded Mozilla 1.5 and the readme says that in order for normal users to be able to run Mozilla, root has to run it first?

Also, I still haven't found a solution to my python problem, which is my biggest worry at the moment

It might help if you get a new theme for Mozilla .... I don't really know; I've never had a problem like that.

For python, are you sure that you have the right version of pygtk? Is it for Python 2.3 or 2.0?

Sorry to resurrect a fairly dead subject, but my gnome-python issue has moved on forwards (or backwards) slightly!

I read through the logs of the process as far back as I could and came across this -
Upon doing a ./configure of pygtk2.0.0 it returns the following:

checking for gtkgl-2.0 >= 1.99.0... Package gtkgl-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtkgl-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtkgl-2.0' found

Now I understand that the package is either missing or corrupt or installed somewhere else, but I've tried googling for it and I can't find the package anywhere downloadable? The only sites I have found are vague references in file lists etc, nothing specific about it.

Again, the eventual aim is to install gDesklets for GNOME 2.4, but I'm still stuck with it

It looks like you need the GTK GL libraries. I can't really help with that - I've never used slack.

Thats the problem - everything else says that I have them. I have even installed them, and yet it still produces the same error.

I was having the exact same problem.
I am running slackware 9.1, and I am trying to install gDesklets.

What you need to do is the following:
Install pyorbit, and gnome-python from:
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pyorbit/2.0/
and
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sourc...me-python/2.0/
respectively.

Hope it works.

Cheers.
