    Installed:
    SuSE9.1
    wxPythonGTK2-py2.3-2.5.2.7-RH9.i386.rpm
    python 2.3.3

    I get the following traceback:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/drpython/drpython.py", line 45, in -toplevel-
        import wx, wx.stc
      File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/wx/__init__.py", line 42, in -toplevel-
        from wx._core import *
      File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/wx/_core.py", line 4, in -toplevel-
        import _core_
    ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/wx/_core_.so: undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS2_AsWideChar

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling wxPython according to a previous message detailing the same problem.  So far it doesn't work.

    Am I missing other packages?

    Thanks,
    Barry Drake

      Forgot to mention, I'm using

      drpython-3.6.9

      Thanks,

    • Well, I have a few suggestions:

      1.  try 2.5.2.8.
      2.  Make sure you get the package directly from the wxpython site.
      3.  Try GTK, instead of GTK2 (Much faster anyway).

      The GTK version does not support unicode, and therefore may not have this problem.  The GTK2 port has had problems throughout the 2.5.x branch, however they are being addressed, and should at some point result in a port as stable as GTK and Windows.

        Thank you very much.

        1. unstalled the GTK2 version of wxPython 2.5.2.7
        2. installed the GTK version of wxPython 2.5.2.8

        drPython is running!
