It's done... finally... enjoy...
Please read the install document before doing anything...
Still in Alpha fill free to make it better...

When I first started using Ubuntu I was having a hard time learning how to install things. Thankfully I'm much better now. This is mostly for those people who want to get folding started and are having a hard time doing it.

PLEASE GO DOWN TO POST 4!!!!

Hi,

Thanks for the work, sounds great.
I tried running it but I got the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./Testgui", line 5, in <module>
import wx
ImportError: No module named wx

I am told this is a problem. Someone else complained about this on another site...

Can you tell me exactly what you did, what version Ubuntu you are running, whether its 32 or 64 bits and if you have wxGlade installed.

WOW! I'm retarded... I used an old version of Testgui for the archive... Here's the fixed version. Try it for me.

Installing python-wxglade did the trick. :) I installed it successfully and it seems F&H is running.

It's a good start. You should look into using zenity for completely guificating the installation process, and using "uname -m" to determine if the user is 32bit or 64bit (64bit reports "x86_64", and 32bit I think "i386". It is possible that you might get something other than that (ppc, ia64...)).

Thanks for the ideas. I'm actually going to document the rest of the updates at this location:
http://www.overclock.net/overclock-net-folding-home-team/339776-gui-f-h-installer-linux.html
I get input faster and from a variety of Linux distro users so it helps production become faster. Please feel free to join the forums there and help out. :D

EDIT: How do I open/use Zenity? Do I need to open it?


Installing python-wxglade did the trick. :) I installed it successfully and it seems F&H is running.
I find it strange that wx-glade wasn't already installed...


PS. NEW VERSION IS AVAILABLE AT THE LINK ABOVE.

Hey thanks! I'll give this a try! Will it work in Mac though? (I'm hopeing to develope this so that Linux, Mac, and Windows can use it)

No, it won't. You'll want to learn PyGTK (since as I see your program atm uses Glade-made GTK gui + Python) to continue further. There's a very good tutorial available here (click (http://www.micahcarrick.com/12-24-2007/gtk-glade-tutorial-part-1.html)).
