Unhappy iPodder Won't Launch


I am trying to get iPodder to run on SuSe 9.1 Pro, which I am running on a Thinkpad T30. I installed the current iPodder rpm using Yast, and had no difficulties. I figured out that I needed to add the Python packages, and did that using the installation disk. Yast does not identify any missing dependencies.

Still, when I try to launch as root using the iPodder icon, nothing happens. So, I've tried the ipodder command in a console. I get this message:

linux:/bin # ipodder
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
(iPodderGui.py:10411): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
linux:/bin #

If I issue the command as user, I get an entirely different set of messages:

jay@linux:/usr/bin> ipodder
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "iPodderGui.py", line 6, in ?
import iPodder
File "/opt/iPodder/iPodder.py", line 51, in ?
import configuration
File "/opt/iPodder/configuration.py", line 16, in ?
import feeds
File "/opt/iPodder/feeds.py", line 10, in ?
import bloglines
File "/opt/iPodder/bloglines.py", line 13, in ?
import xml.dom.minidom
ImportError: No module named xml.dom.minidom
jay@linux:/usr/bin>

Anyone got any ideas - particularly what the first message is all about?

iPodder Clues for you.

Run the "which ipodder" to find the location of your ipodder "program" and run the "cat /usr/bin/ipodder" command to see what it's trying to do (t's just a text file, so you can get away this). My install (from the beta rpm) put the main "application" in /opt/iPodder and the iPodderGui.py file is a python scrip that trys to import "wx" which I think is a library or header file, but seems like it'd be related to libwx which is part of the GTK (GIPM Tool Kit) which is used to generate the GUI for the GIMP photo editor.

I imagine it's actually an issue that can be solved by modifying the environment variables to include the correct path, or a config file for python, though I've never used python or GTK in my web developement work yet (php, perl, and MySQL guy so far).

P. S. Here's command line dump for your pleasure (host name replaced):
-- Mandrake 10.1 --
[wjanoch@localhost]$ which ipodder
/usr/bin/ipodder
[wjanoch@localhost]$ ipodder
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "iPodderGui.py", line 1, in ?
import wx
ImportError: No module named wx
[wjanoch@localhost]$ cat /usr/bin/ipodder
#!/bin/bash

cd /opt/iPodder
python iPodderGui.py
-- The End --

Ok. Here's the output. What do I do now?

jay@linux:~> which ipodder
/usr/bin/ipodder

import iPodder
File "/opt/iPodder/iPodder.py", line 51, in ?

jay@linux:~> cat /usr/bin/ipodder
#!/bin/bash

cd /opt/iPodder
python iPodderGui.py


jay@linux:~>

I'm not real tech saavy. If you have a suggestion, I need the baby steps. Thanks.
