After poking around I found more than one approach to installing GTK+. It looks a little involved to me so I will put in on the
back burner for a little while. I am surprised that the Glade windows installer did not install everything it needs
I have plenty to learn/do just with Python, but using the Linux PC I am interested in additional learning with GUI for Python and Linux. I think that is the best way to get even simple programs useful if you need interactive code for the user. Using the interactive mode seems ok for simple task but not where interaction is needed with the user.
To explan that, as a task, I wanted to convert a VB 2008 Express program to run under Python (w/GUI). I am thinking that would be a starting place to go to the next step in learning to use Python in a Linux environment.
I am also investigating pygtk as a method to get a GUI working , but Glad is working just fine on the Linux PC.
Yoriz: I did install a msi file on the WIndows machine, thanks for the link. However, I get an error message that GTK is not found. I am now thinking that may be a PATH issue for modules(?). I think that if the GTK 'stuff' doesn't work , then I will not be able to do any gui coding, even 'hand coding'.
Thanks again for your input.UPDATE
I have been experimenting using pyGTK and looking for additional clarification
on adding multiple buttons to a Vertical or Horizontal box.
Is the best way to add several buttons to a horizontal box is to divide it into multiple
vertical box's and use each vertical box as the container for buttons or individual widgets?
I found some information on using a button box, is that the better way to go?
