...some more blabla (i cannot sleep like you do...)
Q: What is wxWindows(wxGTK)?
A: A free C++ library for cross-platform GUI development.
Q: Are there bindings for my favourite scripting languge?
A: Yes, they are called wxPerl and wxPython, work is done on Basic and
(above from: http://www.freiburg.linux.de/~wxxt/)
the best solution would be to let the wxPython module just install
wxPython-bindings and add wxGTK to the DEPENDS of wxPython....
but in the current moonbase wxPython will build wxGTK. we wonder why and
found this unsatisfying answer:
Source code for wxGTK is now included with the wxPythonSrc tarball,
and is the recommended way to get released wxGTK source code if you
plan on building both.
(above from: http://wxpython.org/BUILD.unix.txt)
that would explain why the original (unknown) author of the wxPython
module uses the wxGTK that comes with wxPython....weird that he/she
made it so that both (the standalone wxGTK and the wxGTK from wxPython)
installs in the exact same place...
IMO this change is worth a try:
- the wxGTK module stays as is (for audacity and whatever)
- the wxPython module only installs the Python bindings and DEPENDS on
the wxGTK module
thats clean, nothing gets compiled twice and it solves the audacity
thank you for reading!
i am starting testing this now...
good night for now :-)
