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
