How can I make CairoPlot work in Windows?

Asked by Victor Westmann on 2009-10-14

I've already installed (remember I'm on a Win32 machine (XP to be more precise))

1. Python (python-2.6.3.msi),
2. PyCairo (pycairo-1.4.12-2.win32-py2.6.exe),
3. Cairo (from the "Official GTK+ for Windows page" cairo_1.8.8-2_win32.zip ),
4. Bazaar (bzr-setup-1.6.1-1.exe).

After all this I downloaded the CairoPlot through bazaar (bzr branch lp:cairoplot) and builded it. (python setup.py --build)
Now what? What am I missing here?

Any help is welcome!

If someone help me making CairoPlot work I'll make a nice article/tutorial about it (step-by-step, in baby steps in my blog about it). I just want to get to make this sweet piece of software to work in order to give it back to the comunity. Thanks in advance!

I'd say you're missing some dependancies. Install the GTK+ for Windows libraries from this link: http://gtk-win.sourceforge.net/home/index.php/en/Downloads, it does include cairo.

Then try running tests.py fro inside the cairoplot directory, many test output svg files should be generated.

Does it help ?

Thanks Karel Kolman, that solved my question.
