problems with installing Stani's Python Editor 0.8.1.b

I am on slackware 10.2 / kernel

Python 2.4.1
wxPython (from the slackware packages)
Stani's Python Editor (SPE) 0.8.1.b

It installed fine. But when I try to run it:

root@slack_prad:/home/pradeep/SPE-0.8.1.b-wx2.6.1.0.-bl2.35# spe
Spe Error: Please install the right version of wxPython:

SPE v0.8.1.b (c)2003-2005

If spe fails to start:
 - type "python --debug > debug.txt 2>&1" at the command prompt
   (or if you use tcsh: "python --debug >& debug.txt")
 - send debug.txt with some info to[at]

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/spe", line 3, in ?
    import _spe.SPE
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/_spe/", line 28, in ?
    import ConfigParser, sys, os, wx
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/wx-2.6-gtk2-unicode/wx/", line 42, in ?
    from wx._core import *
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/wx-2.6-gtk2-unicode/wx/", line 4, in ?
    import _core_
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It says I need the correct wxpython version but I do have that right?

Btw ... also please suggest if there are any(other) good gui editors for python.

I'm having the same problem. There are some editors that work fine for Python, including bluefish. But SPE is an IDE for Python, not just an editor...

Where did you find a Slackware package for wxPython???
