GASP not working properly on Windows
I was having the same problem as another user who got the glib...gerror message. So I tried running the installer as the answer to that user suggested. When I ran the installer under Vista, it would give me 3 errors during installation. "Could not create: gasp-py2.6"; "Could not set key value: Python 2.6 gasp-0.3.2"; and "C:\Python26\
However, now when I try to run a simple program using GASP, I get an endless sequence of console errors and efforts to open a window and the window closes. Here is the text of the script I was trying to run:
from gasp import *
I'm wondering if the problem with not getting GASP to work has to do with gtk+. I'm guessing that because the instructions for installing gasp said this:
3. Microsoft Windows
There is an .EXE installer for GASP which can be downloaded from launchpad.net. In order for GASP to work, you must install the following packages first:
Now, PyGTK, PyCairo, and PyGObject all have installers that are .exe and ran without issue on my system. The GTK+ didn't have that kind of installer. Not knowing which gtk+ to download, I downloaded the 23mb bundle with everything and followed the readme instructions to:
Then add the bin folder to your PATH. Make sure you have no other
versions of GTK+ in PATH. Run:
pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0
and verify that it prints out something reasonable. Run:
and verify that it works.
The gtk-demo works fine on my system. The path only has one reference to the bin folder of GTK+. I'm not sure what else could be preventing GASP from working. My thoughts are that I didn't properly install the GTK+.
Also, I think it would be helpful to know what the first error messages are that come up on the console. However, the console only displays so much and I can never catch the scroll bar quick enough to see the first few messages.
I'm running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista on my HP laptop.
Can you help with this problem?
