Bittorent and GTK problem


I downloaded a BitTorrent Slackware pagakge from linuxpackages.net. I installed it but I get the following error:

Quote:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/bittorrent", line 30, in ?
import gtk
ImportError: No module named gtk
And I have GTK installed, so what can be the problem?

I got the same message but if you take a look there is an almost ncurses interface which I preffer because I can put inside an 'screen tab'

Try this interface.

Suggestion: If you want another bt client.. azureus is a very good graphical option. It was made using Java.

this software is written in python, so you need to have pygtk installed (for more info about pygtk)

Thank you for the information in the last post. I was surprised to find a thread asking the question which I needed answering. Unfortunately, the solution gives rise to a new question.

Configuring pygtk proves not to be so simple. I have tried the suggested methods for instructing the installer in the location of python but it still reports "configure: error: could not find Python headers". I may have to start a new thread about this later but if anyone knows the solution, I would appreciate the information.

That's because Suse doesn't install and devel stuff because...I can't think of a good reason. If you want to build PyGTK from source then you'll need to install a python-devel package or similar or there will probably be a prebuilt pygtk package in yast if you look.

Thanks. I haven't got that far with SuSE yet. That's a weekend job until the OS is in working order. In the meantime, I have to keep using Mandriva 2005 which is where the present problem arises. And I thought Window 98SE was a pain!

Mandriva is the same, none of those distros install the library headers etc with an app/lib.
