Thank you for your patient advice and explanation. Really appreciated!
Oh, well, here is a general advice to all the good guys - don't grow old; the
short term memory gets shot in old age, eventually followed by all memory as
t the departure time approaches... :)
I should have recalled the earlier bash at the installation, but I did not.
And I got the impression that installation from ppa was recommended.
The branching complains about the inability to load plugin 'gtk', as the
following CLI dialog shows:
ak at amd64:~/.bazaar/plugins$ bzr branch lp:bzr-explorer explorer
Unable to load plugin 'gtk'. It requested API version (1, 13, 0) of module
<module 'bzrlib' from '/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/bzrlib/__init__.pyc'>
but the minimum exported version is (1, 17, 0), and the maximum is (1, 17, 0)
Branched 250 revision(s).
ak at amd64:
(I am ak and amd64 is the name of my pc - I think I have the 32 bit ubuntu on
it.) From my CLI:
ak at amd64:/dat/programs/fem/trunk$ uname -a
Linux amd64 2.6.28-13-generic #45-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 30 19:49:51 UTC 2009 i686
The complaint is repeated On attempt to run the explorer with 'bzr explorer'
the complaint about gtk is repeated.
Hmmm- I better look at your earlier mail, Ian. I think there was a mention
about running it under the name of 'main', no? 'bzr main' complains about gtk
and then gives error: `bzr: ERROR: unknown command "main"`
On the happy side, the q* commands seem to run in their own windows without
Perhaps I should return to my structural analysis program suite, but not just
yet - I still feel like bashing my head against a wall for a while...
Thank you everybody for your patience reading this!
