some days ago, although I am fairly satisfied with my current XMPP
client, Pidgin, I decided to try Gajim. It seems to be more close to use
all the features that XMPP can offer.
There is something a bit unusual - although not a problem, just for what
it is. The machine I use most is old, and has Ubuntu 10.04 in it. It
runs fine, with all the programs I need and like and with a good
I am not too familiar with building processes, although I have done
several of them (since and along years ago).
My current problem is that Gajim complains that it needs PyGTK 2.22+ to
run. But I have PyGTK 2.24.0 installed!
The full story of my process of getting the Gajim source, installing
and/or compiling and installing dependencies is detailed in a
LinuxQuestions' thread. I will give you the thread address, but I will
also summarize the important parts (for this discussion) right after:
1. Downloaded Gajim 0.16.7 tarball:
2. Discovered dependency: installed python-nbxmpp (
https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/python-nbxmpp/ ) from source. A few more
packages were installed through Synaptic (details in post #1).
3. To install PyGTK 2.24.0 (
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pygtk/2.24/ ), pygobject >=
2.21.3 was needed, tar.bz of 2.21.3 here:
4. PyGTK reported, before building:
The following modules will be built:
The following modules will NOT be built:
Numpy support: no
4.1. What should I do to build those in the "NOT" section? Are they used
4.2. PyGTK installer reported (full report on thread page 2, post #21):
Libraries have been installed in:
5. PyGTK 2.24.0 is installed. Gajim still does not work, saying that it
needs PyGTK 2.22+. What to do?
6. Someone said that "Gajim requires: pycrypto, pyOpenSSL,
python-nbxmpp". I have not found this written in any Gajim file I
downloaded. Does my build of Gajim includes support for security features?
I will be waiting for comments or (in the best possibility) the solution
for my problem,
