Linux & wxPython 2.9.3.1 blissend 5/29/12 12:47 PM
Hi,

I'm having a lot of trouble getting wxPython 2.9.3.1 to build on Linux without error. My goal is to make a Linux version of my program with something like pyinstaller but unfortunately for me it needs wxPython 2.9 instead of 2.8. So my question is, what's the easiest way to go about this? Is there a preferred Linux distro, get latest from something like svn instead, troubleshoot the build errors, or just forget about my preconception with the coolness 2.9 brings and stick to rewriting for 2.8 since it's ready to go on Linux? Perhaps I'm missing something here but I just can't seem to make any headway here.

I'm currently using a virtualbox ubuntu setup (was using fedora before having problems there too) and I now run into this error...

 
 The installation of wxWidgets is finished.  On certain
 platforms (e.g. Linux) you'll now have to run ldconfig
 if you installed a shared library and also modify the
 LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or equivalent) environment variable.
 
 wxWidgets comes with no guarantees and doesn't claim
 to be suitable for any purpose.
 
 Read the wxWindows Licence on licencing conditions.

This is pretty basic -- you either don't have the Python headers installed:

Do you have the "*-devel" or whatever they are called packages for
python installed?

Or they are installed, but the wx build can't find them.

Oh you! Taking my overly complicated explanation of the problem and basically telling me hey you forgot to plug in the power cord!

Anyway, thanks a million! It worked wonderful after installing the python-dev* stuff.

Hmmm... It looks like wx/gtk/private/win_gtk.h was removed from the list
of files to be installed, although it is still there in the source tree.

A quick workaround for you would be to manually copy that file into the
appropriate destination folder, and also wx/gtk/dc.h which is also
missing, and then run build-wxpython.py again.

I'll look into doing a permanent fix and perhaps a .1 release...

I've uploaded a new patch file that will fix this problem to
SourceForge.  You can get it here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/wxpython/files/wxPython/2.9.4.0/wxPython-src-2.9.4.1.patch/download

Since this affects only source builds using wxGTK I'm not going to make
new binaries for OSX or Windows, or do a full release.

The "wxPython" package was dropped in 2.7 and replaced with some
compatibility modules, (which were pretty much not working by the later
2.8 releases.)  In 2.9 it was dropped entirely and there is now only the
"wx" package.  What do you get if you run "import wx" ?

Hi Robin,

I have already installed the stable version 2.8.12.1 and I can work with wxPython, however I'm facing issues with Boa constructor. I will try to come back in 2.9.4.1 later and I will post here the result of changing from wxPython.wx import * to import wx (actually my code includes both lines). Thank you Robin!

Daniel.
