#32 idcj-0.8.7 error trying init


Hi there,

First all, thank you very much for this amazing tool.

I already have installed in an Ubuntu this version via repositories apt-get and it is running free of issues.

But, in my personal machine with Slackware 13.37 the troubles begin:

Before installing IDJC (0.8.7) i'd make sure on install the dependencies such as the page says: http://idjc.sourceforge.net/install_build.html

On installation all is okay, first <./env-up>, <./configure>, <make> and finally <su -c "make install">

The directories in /usr/local icon.desktop are created succesfully but trying execute this error comes up:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/idjc", line 26, in <module>
import idjc
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/idjc/__init__.py", line 25, in <module>
import pygtk
ImportError: No module named pygtk

I've reinstalled pygtk over and over again with the same error, also, i've uninstall python 2.7 and install 2.6, 2.7.3 and 3.2.2 with the same error.

Do you have any idea of this situation? I would be very gratefully with some help.

Regards from Cali, Colombia, South America.

    I'm 99% certain that PyGTK is installing under Python 2.6 and your distribution has 2.6 as the standard Python. You need Python 2.7 for this version of IDJC and I assume that's where it's installed and therefore can't find PyGTK.

    Either install PyGTK from source or update to a newer distro or try copying over the modules which are probably in /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/. You want from there pygtk glib gobject mutagen and whatever else happens to be missing from this list. HTH.
