Pyvon is written entirely
with Python, Tkinter (the integrated graphical toolkit) and Pmw (
which is an extension of Tkinter).
On most Linux, Unix and FreeBSD systems, Python is very likely to
be already installed on your system.
: You will need Python 2.2 for
Pyvon to work properly. You are going to encounter errors if you
use it with previous release.
Just type python in a console
to check if it's installed.
If so, you will get a >>>
prompt. (Ctrl+D or C to exit).
If not, go to www.python.org to download it.
Once you have downloaded the archive, do the following :
- untar the archive to the directory you want ( with writing permissions)
: tar xzvf Pyvon_****.tgz
- go to the newly created
directory : cd Pyvon
- type the name of the little
script that starts it all : ./Pyvon
If you have already downloaded
Pyvon before :
As all the parameters are stored in Pyvon.ini it may be a good idea
to make a backup of it. You can replace the Pyvon.ini file found
in the archive with yours.
