I'm having trouble getting KernelCheck to run for me on Kubuntu 10.04.

If I try the straight dev method listed on top it all goes fine until I try to run
sudo kernelcheck
At which point I get back

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/kernelcheck", line 9, in <module>
    import os, gtk, sys, getopt, shutil
ImportError: No module named gtk
As far as I can tell, gtk is installed already.

And when I try using the .deb from stevenpusser I get

Error: Cannot install 'python-glade2'
From Package Installer.

So I try to find python-glade2 which says it requires python-gtk2 which says it needs python2.5-gobject.

Attempts to install meet with

Package python2.5-gobject is a virtual package provided by:
You should explicitly select one to install.
E: Package python2.5-gobject has no installation candidate
So I do some digging around and find out that this is already depreciated and I have the newest version already. So I'm not entirely sure where to go from here.

The overarching reason for all of this is my laptop doesn't realize when it's plugged in and others with the same make and model have fixed the problem by compiling their own kernel with certain parts as modules. So if anyone can either help me get KernelCheck working or get my laptop to realize it's plugged in it would be much appreciated.
