end_graphics() fails to close window

Asked by Tim McNamara on 2009-10-04

My environment:
Python 2.6
Ubuntu 9.04 (GNOME 2.26.1)
gasp version (whichever version is from apt-get install python-gasp)

Am following the very beginning docs at http://www.openbookproject.net/pybiblio/gasp/course/G-gasp.html in the interpreter:

start_graphics() opens a window fine, however end_graphics() doesn't appear to do anything. Nor can I click the close button on the top right of the window or right click > close in the panel. The window does close during garbage collection (quit()), however.

Python 2.6.2 (release26-maint, Apr 19 2009, 01:56:41)
[GCC 4.3.3] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from gasp import *
>>> begin_graphics(width=800, height=600, title="My Game", background=color.YELLOW)
>>> end_graphics()
>>> quit()

Is there any way to run diagnostics to see why the window isn't closing?

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Open' state without activity for the last 15 days.

This is a running problem. There are some issues with figuring out how the quit functionality of the threading works...
