    Scribes - a new text editor for Gnome?

    Hi all,

    I'm playing with my Breezy preview install, and while looking for great Gnome software I found this new text editor for Gnome: Scribes
    http://scribes.sourceforge.net/index.html

    It's currently at 0.1, but it looks promising. I may try to package it for ubuntu.

    0.2 has just been released. I really like it, I'm using it instead of gedit these days. I considered trying to packaging 0.1, but couldn't find any instructions for packaging a python app that uses setup.py anywhere.

    yes, yes. Please share this packaging information. I desperately want to set up my antispam system (camram.org) as a package for ubuntu. one of the big challenges is figuring out how to automatically change/modify the postfix configuration. I may need to leave that as a human mediated task.

    Hey guys, how can you get this thing to compile? I get

    running install
    error: invalid Python installation: unable to open /usr/lib/python2.4/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)
    When i try to install, I'm sorta new to Ubuntu, I tried looking for that makefile but theres soooooooooo many listings for python2.4 i just gave up.
    Am i missing a package? Is there like a python-source or something?

    nanananana!

    sudo apt-get install python-dev
    /me loves answering his own problems, even if it only happens once every 14 years.
