PyGTK ===== Original authors: James Henstridge <firstname.lastname@example.org> Johan Dahlin <email@example.com> Past maintainers: Gustavo J A M Carneiro <firstname.lastname@example.org> Paul Pogonyshev <email@example.com> Gian Mario Tagliaretti <firstname.lastname@example.org> Maintainers: John Stowers <email@example.com> Dieter Verfaillie <firstname.lastname@example.org> This archive contains modules that allow you to use GTK+-2 in Python programs. At present, it is a complete set of bindings up to and including the gtk+-2.24 API. If you have any enhancements or bug reports, please file them in bugzilla at: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=pygtk If you have a patch, file the bug first and then use the "create new attachment" link on the bug's info page. My preferred format for patches is unified diff format (ie. diff -u). Please don't send me diffs which don't have any context, as these make it very difficult to see what the patch does. New Versions ============ New versions of this package can be found at: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pygtk/ Mailing list ============ There is a mailing list for pygtk. You can subscribe to it through the web interface: http://www.daa.com.au/mailman/listinfo/pygtk Requirements ============ * C compiler (GCC, MSVC and mingw supported) * Python 2.3.5 or higher * PyGObject 2.21.3 or higher * Pycairo 1.0.2 or higher * Glib 2.8.0 or higher * GTK+ 2.8.0 or higher (optional) or GTK+ 2.10.0 or higher for 2.10 API GTK+ 2.12.0 or higher for 2.12 API GTK+ 2.14.0 or higher for 2.14 API GTK+ 2.16.0 or higher for 2.16 API GTK+ 2.18.0 or higher for 2.18 API GTK+ 2.20.0 or higher for 2.20 API GTK+ 2.22.0 or higher for 2.22 API GTK+ 2.24.0 or higher for 2.24 API * libglade 2.5.0 or higher (optional) * pycairo 1.0.2 or higher (optional) * numpy (optional) This release is supporting the following GTK+ releases: 2.8.x 2.10.x 2.12.x 2.14.x 2.16.x 2.18.x 2.20.x 2.22.x 2.24.x To include support for the 2.10 API you'll need GTK+ 2.10.0 etc. Copyright Information ===================== This software is covered by the GNU Lesser General Public Licence (version 2.1, or if you choose, a later version). Basically just don't say you wrote bits you didn't. Compilation =========== PyGTK uses the standard autotools for the build infrastructure. To build, it should be as simple as running: $ ./configure --prefix=<prefix where python is installed> $ make $ make install To build the reference documentation, supply the argument "--enable-docs" to configure. If your Python interpreter isn't in the path, or is not called "python", you can set the PYTHON environment variable to the full path of the interpreter: $ PYTHON=/prefix/bin/python $ export PYTHON If configure can't find GTK+, you may need to set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable to help it find the libraries. The "make install" target will generate normal and optimised bytecode for all the .py files. Note. If you're installing to another prefix than the one where python is installed you'll need to set the PYTHONPATH variable to the $prefix/lib/pythonX.Y/site-packages directory created by the PyGTK installation. Tests ===== After having compiled and installed pygtk, you may want to test them. There are a number of example programs available in the examples/ subdirectory. Getting Help ============ If you have questions about programming with PyGTK, you might want to send a message to the mailing list (information on subscribing is above).
