I've downloaded wxPython-src-126.96.36.199.tar.bz2 from http://www.wxpython.org; right now I'm trying to follow the build instructions on http://www.wxpython.org/BUILD.html. I've managed to build it using
$ python build-wxpython.py --install without errors so far. The problem is I can't run it:
import wx will return
ImportError: No module named wx, everytime..
My system has multiple Pythons using virtualenvs. After running the build these files can be found together with other packages which I use on a usual basis (in my site-packages folder):
wx.pth wxPython_common-188.8.131.52-py2.7.egg-info wxPython_common-184.108.40.206-py2.7.egg-info
I suspect that I've installed it in the wrong location somehow, and I need to specify the location before building it. But I don't know how.
This is the build options:
Usage: build-wxpython.py [options]
Options: --version show program's version number and exit -h, --help show this help message and exit --build_dir=BUILD_DIR Directory to store wx build files. (Not used on Windows) --clean Clean files from build directories. Default is all build files. Specify 'wx' to clean just the wx build, 'py' for just the wxPython build, and 'pyext' for just the built extension modules. --debug Build wxPython with debug symbols --extra_make=EXTRA_MAKE Extra args to pass on [n]make's command line. --extra_setup=EXTRA_SETUP Extra args to pass on setup.py's command line. --force_config Run configure when building even if the script determines it's not necessary. --install Install the built wxPython into installdir or standard location --installdir=INSTALLDIR Directory to install wxWidgets to. --mac_framework Build wxWidgets as a Mac framework. --mac_lipo EXPERIMENTAL: Create a universal binary by merging a PPC and Intel build together. --no_config Turn off configure step on autoconf builds --osx_cocoa Build the OS X Cocoa port on Mac (experimental) --prefix=PREFIX Prefix value to pass to the wx build. --reswig Allow SWIG to regenerate the wrappers --unicode Build wxPython with unicode support (always on for wx2.9) --wxpy_installdir=WXPY_INSTALLDIR Directory to install the wxPython binaries.
Can someone explain to me: what's the difference between
Which other parameters should I include to
$ python build-wxpython.py --install?
