Any chance of this great piece of software being ported
Logged In: YES
There are plans, but it's not on top of the priority list.
Hopefully it will be done sooner or later.

i really would a windows version. I hate all the other windows ones they are not even on the same feild as you guys!
registering interest in so called windows port ++
this is a great software, even better that ACDSee i think.
saddly it only runs on Linux platform.
btw i tried run it from windoz with installing Python, GTK-dev and stuff.
it can run, but cannot open a file even a .jpg file T_T
please.... make windoz installation of this software
please... i beggin' you m(_ _)m
same, i'd love to have this on windows
can't get it to install though. i got all the stuff it needs to run before i realised it is built for linux.
Comix 4 is a lot easier to get running on windows(32-bit) than the previous versions were(it's still a lot of steps but a lot less editing of the source). Go to the download page of the main site, download these things:
Comix 4 source
Python: stick with 2.5 or 2.6
PyGTK: download the versions of pycairo, pygobject, pygtk that match your python version, follow the GTK+ runtime link and download the GTK+ runtime.
PIL: download matching python version
Install python, gtk+, pygtk, and pil.
Add the python directory(C:/Python25 probably) to your environment path. To do that, open up the start menu, right click my computer and select properties. Select on the "Advanced" tab and click "Environment Variables". Scroll down to the "Path" entry in the system variables panel and click "Edit". Type a semicolon at the end of the value line and put in the path to your python directory.
Open up the python tarball and extract the files to, for simplicity's sake, C:/comix. Go into the src folder and open ui.py and library.py in a text editor. You're looking to comment out or delete all of the lines that have the method "set_tooltip_text". For ui.py, that's lines 282-298; and for library.py they're at: 773, 774, 793, 799, 800, and 806. Obviously the line numbers can change with version changes, just putting them in for some reference. Use the search function of your editor to make sure you get all of them.
If you want to be able to open RAR files, install winrar, then open up the file "archive.py" in the src folder. Scroll down to the bottom, looking for the function "_get_rar_exect()" and insert "return <the path to UnRAR.exe>" directly below the comment.
Open up command prompt and move to the src folder. Type "python comix.py" and it should open up Comix. If it doesn't, look to the debug output for some clue as to why. Once you're sure it works, change the "comix.py" file name to "comix.pyw" and use that to open it up without a console.
I realize this is a bit involved, but I'm not familiar enough with python to really have any idea how to distribute it better, so good luck.
thanks a lot! i will try this
i love comix too but
can make avalible comix for windows please?
and make a instaler please?
Users may also want to try MComix, a fork of Comix that is available for windows
Also if you want to run Comix on Windows you can try following the instuctions here
but MComix seems like the easier option.
