pygtk - Python bindings for GTK ChangeLog

HOWTO


# PyGTK
# =====
# This is not the original PyGTK based on GTK+ 1.2.x  For that one, go here:
# ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/python/v1.2/

# I include several versions below, but keep in mind that I only currently
# (usually) use GTK+ 2.8.x  I'll keep the others current if new versions
# become available, but keep in mind that I have not tried them.
#
# There is a 2.10.x version available for GTK+ 2.10.x, but I'm not running
# GTK+ 2.10.x yet.

# If you ever want to uninstall PyGTK, cd into the source directory and
# run 'make uninstall', then remove the source directory and the tarball.

# Prerequisites (for all versions):
# gawk
# sed
# grep
# pkg-config
# ATK >= 1.0.0
# libglade >= 2.0.0

# The installation prefix passed to configure below (--prefix=) should be the
# same prefix that Python is installed under.  If yours is in /usr/local, use
# that instead.

# Select the appropriate version below for the version of GTK+ that you use.
