How to install pyGTK(2)

Hi Pythoneers,

Im interested in trying some gui programming with the GTK2 toolkit. I
found this brief article,(http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6586),
that speaks about utilising 'Glade' to help build these gui.

I downloaded the pyGTK tarball from
http://www.daa.com.au/~james/software/pygtk/ i do the usual ./configure,
make, makeinstall.

Everything goes well, but when i try a sample script python says it can't
import gtk (i did a help, modules and there is no gtk module listed).
After googling for sometime i found a pygtk slackpack (im running slack
9.1 by the way ;)), and installed that instead.

I then tried the sample script again and this time no gtk problems( the
module is now listed). but it now bombs out on the second import line:
import libglade???

I have glade2 installed, and libglade, but i check python modules and
there is no libglade module listed. Ive googled, but now im getting


I'm really just after a step by step guide to what to download and where
to install everything i need to get started building gui's with
glade+pyGTK+pyt hon. This would be much appreciated.

I promise i googled hard, but sometimes i can't see the wood for the trees :/
Getting my pyGTK, pyGTK2+pyGLADE+ python-libglade's all mixed up and just a
little lost.

Any help would be warmly received.

I have two different Python versions on my Linux system (2.2 and 2.3). I cannot remove version 2.2 because many configuration files of the system depend on this version of Python (and its extensions). Now I want to install extension packages for Python 2.3; if the package is distributed via Distutils, this is no problem: 'python2.3 setup.py install' will do the job (i.e. put everything in the 'site-packages' folder of Python 2.3).

On Linux, I need to ask what your favorite installation options are for a PHP app as a kind of poll. In this first part, I discuss the Install Wizard choices. In Part 2, I discuss the database configuration choices. Consider SugarCRM. It's really an SDK that you customize. Knowing that, you might want to download about 4 to 30 different PHP/CRM products, try out which one you like, and then try to customize 3-4 of your top choices,...
