    I just finished loading blt2.4 and Pmw and have a problem.
    Everything I tested in All.py that applies to blt says
    "Sorry The BLT package has not been installed on this system. Please install it and try again"

    I find
    /usr/lib/libBLT.a
    /usr/lib/libBLT24.so
    /usr/lib/libBLTlite24.a
    /usr/lib/libBLT24.a
    /usr/lib/libBLTlite.a
    /usr/lib/libBLTlite24.so

    and /usr/bin/bltwish

    after doing make install in the blt2.4 directory

    what Am I missing?

      OK I finally found the answer; or at least a way to make it work.  When building blt2.4z after the .configure --with-shared
      cd to ...blt2.4z/src/shared/Makefile and make the following change
      SHLIB_LIB_SPECS = 

      to

      SHLIB_LIB_SPECS =  -L/usr/lib -ltk8.4 -ltcl8.4 -lX11 -lm -lnsl  -ldl

      then cd to .../blt2.4z

      and type
      make

      make install

      the Pmw demo All.py BLT parts now work.

      God its good to figure out and correct a problem. I worked on building wxPython for a week before giving up and swithing to Pwm.

      Oops that should be

      cd to ...blt2.4z/src/shared/

      and make the following change to the Makefile

      Blah blah blah
