View Full Version : [SOLVED] Ubuntu, PyGTK and PyGObject

April 12th, 2012, 09:30 PM
I read on http://developer.ubuntu.com/get-started/
We recommend using PyGTK to create applications for Ubuntu. We have created a tool called Quickly which gets you up and running with PyGTK and all the tools you need right away.
and then I read on http://www.pygtk.org/
PyGTK-2.24 will be the final major release of PyGTK. Additional bug-fix releases may appear when necessary to maintain compatibility and stability with the GTK-2.24 series.
New users wishing to develop Python applications using GTK+ are recommended to use the GObject-Introspection features available in PyGObject.
Existing authors of PyGTK applications are also recommended to port their applications to PyGObject to take advantage of new features appearing in GTK-3 and beyond.

I am just curious, in future must I prefer PyGObject to develop for ubuntu and existing ubuntu PyGTK application will be ported to PyGObject ?

sorry for poor english )))

Hi Yoh0xFF, (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=1442927)
I asked developers about these issues and here is the answer:
1) Quickly 12.04 (released along with Ubuntu 12.04 just today) supports GObject introspection and GTK+ 3.

And you can read here the whole answer:

So, Quickly is really a good way to start, but its marketing is a bit confusing.
Please, change the topic to solved
