Can't install GASP

Asked by JFoster on 2009-09-01

This is the Traceback I get when I try to import GASP

IDLE 2.6.2
>>> import gasp

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
    import gasp
  File "C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\gasp\__init__.py", line 15, in <module>
    from api import *
  File "C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\gasp\api.py", line 14, in <module>
    import backend
  File "C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\gasp\backend.py", line 20, in <module>

    from _gobject import type_from_name
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

I get a different Traceback with Python 3.1:

Python 3.1.1 (r311:74483, Aug 17 2009, 17:02:12) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.
>>> import gasp
Traceback (most recent call last):

    import gasp
  File "C:\Python31\lib\site-packages\gasp\__init__.py", line 15, in <module>
    from api import *
ImportError: No module named api
>>>

Any advice that you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Gasp does not currently work well outofthebox on Python 2.6 on Windows.

Can you install Python 2.5 and try again?

JFoster (pharmacyguy42) said : #2

Hi!

Thanks for getting back to me.

I installed Python 2.5 as you suggested and then installed GASP from this link: http://edge.launchpad.net/gasp-core/0.3.x/0.3.2/+download/python-gasp-0.3.2~win32-2.exe

This is what I get now:

Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Sep 19 2006, 09:52:17) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.

IDLE 1.2

Hope you can help!

Thanks in advance.

You are supposed to "import gasp", not GASP, as module names in python are
canonically lowercase.

okay, I downloaded multiprocessing-2.6.2.1.win32-py2.5.exe? and when I tried to import gasp I was told that it needed the cairo module. I downloaded an earlier version of cairo that worked with python 2.5 (pycairo-1.2.6-1.win32-py2.5.exe) and that seemed to fix that situation but now I get this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
    import gasp
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\gasp\__init__.py", line 15, in <module>
    from api import *
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\gasp\api.py", line 26, in <module>
    import backend
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\gasp\backend.py", line 26, in <module>
    import cairo
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\cairo\__init__.py", line 1, in <module>
    from _cairo import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

I appreciate your help.

thank you
