Problems compiling, installing and running programs that need PyGTK
a few days ago, I decided to try the Gajim XMPP client. Due some
limitations and the willing to have its current version, I need to
compile it from source. Not a big problem, this is not something so new
But I have a problem with Gajim: it needs PyGTK 2.22+. I have downloaded
PyGTK 2.24.0 source, a few dependencies, compiled and installed it. But
Gajim keeps complaining the same!
The discussion in Gajim dev list is not too long. I ask you to read the
first two messages of that thread (including the quoted previous
messages because the first reply I received was, by mistake, not sent to
the list). The main part of what I wrote is:
4. PyGTK reported, before building:
The following modules will be built:
The following modules will NOT be built:
Numpy support: no
4.1. What should I do to build those in the "NOT" section? Are they used
This item, 4.1, has a question I want to ask here, the first there.
Further, I did what forenjunkie wrote in 2017-06-11 19:09, about the two
python environment commands. With those commands, should I expect that
python reported version 2.24.0, since I installed this version of PyGTK?
Or I would need to compile the gtk module in PyGTK? How? I installed
PyGTK in /usr/local, as you may see in those related threads I point here.
