    Having problems with pygtk

    Hello! I'm having problems with the pygtk package. I believe that it is properly installed but when other programs try to access it, it can't be found. On the Synaptic Package Manager it says that python-gtk2-dev version 2.24.0-3 is installed but when I trying importing it in python it says the package cannot be found( I found out that this is one way to verify if the package is installed correctly). I've tried re-installing it a couple times but It hasn't seemed to fix the problem.

    I'm a newbie to Ubuntu so any and all help would be appreciated.

    It seems that you have missing dependencies. Do, 'sudo apt-get build-dep python-gtk2' which will download and install all required dependencies.

    Thanks shafi. This command definitely updated a few things but still no luck with pygtk when I try to import it in python. . Any other ideas??

    Still looking for some assistance here. Not sure what I should do.

    Just tried this basically: http://faq.pygtk.org/index.py?req=sh...=faq01.010.htp

    but didn't really change anything apparently.
