wxPython

Hello everyone,
I'm new at this so please be gentle. I have Python 2.4 on fc4. I
installed easy_install and Python in my home directory since I don't
have root permissions. It works fine. Now I want to install wxPython. I
downloaded wxPython-src2.6.3.3.tar. bz2 from the site and now I'm trying
this from the commnad line:
easy_install --install-dir
/usr/people/stevenq/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ --dry-run
~/Desktop/wxPython-src-2.6.3.3.tar
and I get this:
error: Couldn't find a setup script in
/usr/people/stevenq/Desktop/wxPython-src-2.6.3.3.tar
Anybody has any ideas?
Best regards,
Steven

I suspect that your version for 2.4 is later than the one I installed a
couple weeks ago. That one was 2.6.1.0 You could possibly have the
one for python 2.5. I had trouble downloading that and pywin for the
p.c. If you don't care about pywin you can consider python 2.5. Even
if it is evident that the version still exsists it may still be in the
search engines.. I don't know if you are after windows or not since I
am not sure what fc4 is but if you are I have the uploads on my site.

I am a newbie with Python. It's a great language, but I would like to be able to present a simple gui menu for some of my scripts; something better than using 'raw_input' prompts. Any recommendations for a program that will allow me to create the gui screens? Something useable in Linux. thanks.
