Windows note:

I have tested and run the viewer on WindowsXP with SP2 only. But it should work on other windows platforms, too.

If you don't have the python, python-gtk and gtk already installed, you'll need to download and install them before runing the viewer.

For gtk, I am using the gladewin32 release. The python-gtk is from here.


To install the viewer from sources you will need, beside the run-time dependencies: Installation uses the distutils module from python. The installation can be tweaked in a couple of ways: If you have both python2.3 and python2.4 installed, be sure you call the setup with the correct python version!

Example 1

python install --prefix=/tmp/foo
does: -> /tmp/foo/bin/
PyComicsViewer    -> /tmp/foo/lib/python-2.3/site-packages/PyComicsViewer
glade & png's     -> /tmp/foo/PyComicsViewer

Example 2

python install --install-scripts=/tmp/foo \
	--install-lib=/tmp/foo --install-data=/tmp/foo
does: -> /tmp/foo/
PyComicsViewer    -> /tmp/foo/PyComicsViewer
glade & png's     -> /tmp/foo/PyComicsViewer
