View Full Version : Help! wxPython

December 7th, 2006, 11:28 PM
wxPython only seems to work in my Python 2.4 installation. It doesn't on Python 2.5. It says that the module can't be found. I'm just starting with Python, so I'm not really familiar with what to do.

Maybe don't start with wxWidgets then - get feel of python with text processing. Which book do you use to learn python?

Try http://www.pythonchallenge.com/ or PM me for programming tasks where you don't need program for GUI.

Thanks for the link. :) I've read through "Beginning Python - From Novice To Professional" from Apress from the school library. I've had prior experience in programming already, and looking into the higher level ones - Python and Ruby. I'm taking up python first, and I've run through the basics already the past few days. Now experimenting with GUI.

try online books http://diveintopython.org/ and/or http://www.byteofpython.info/ (both found on http://www.python.org/about/gettingstarted/ page). For sure buy python pocket reference - best spent $10 in my life. If you want to try GUI programming for games, go directly for pygames library - there are many games to learn from.

For applications, cool guys don't do GUI anymore - they do web based apps with AJAX. :-) Django is "official" web application framework, but TurboGears is more fun and AJAXy. Especially if you plan to try ruby (so you do rails - what else is there in ruby?), you should try also python web frameworks.
