hmm. well still doesn't seem right to me but what do I know. wxglade i'm noticing is a dev tool. is site-packages really a standard install dir for user apps? Perhaps wxglade installs there because it might also be used as a libary and imported into different python apps?

That sounds funny. gramps is an app not a library. Though I'm new to python it seemed that site-packages was for libraries. I don't know how it works on linux / python but windows doesn't normally put apps in a compilers directory tree.

Python does, eg:

 python /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/wxglade/

starts the wxglade app.
