    First download the software from the downloads page; either Glade4 (Python 2.x) or Glade5 (Python 3.x).

    Unzip/untar the file to a directory and follow the README.txt instructions.

    Does it support CentOS 5? I cant install it there, writes 'import site' failed. You may see picture in the attachment.
    Thank you

    Sorry, not yet. I have only compiled and tested on CentOS 4.7

    I'm running glade under LSF and get a Qt error message:

    % bsub -Ip -R x64 glade
    Job <237539> is submitted to default queue <long>.
    <<Waiting for dispatch …>>
    <<Starting on xxx>>
    'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
    _IceTransSocketUNIXConnect: Cannot connect to non-local host xxx
    Qt: Session management error: Could not open network socket

    the machine from which the job submitted is and the job on which it ran have uname:
    Linux xxx 2.6.9-67.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Nov 7 13:56:44 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    How do I clean up the IceTransSocket issue?
    the Qt issue?
    the import site issue?

    Thanks for your help.

    The 'import site' error usually occurs if you have not got Python set up correctly – check your PYTHONDIR / PYTHONPATH.

    As to the _IceTransSocketUNIXConnect error, this has something to do with session management (try googling it). Check that you have permission to display on a remote host (xhost cmd).

    I downloaded the Ubuntu 32bit version, and made this file:

    export GLADE_HOME=/…../glade4_linux32_ub10
    export PATH=$GLADE_HOME/bin:$PATH
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$GLADE_HOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    export PYTHONHOME=/usr/bin/python3
    export PYTHONPATH=$GLADE_HOME/bin:$PYTHONHOME
    alias python='python3'

    when I source this setup file, then try running glade, I get:

    ImportError: No module named site

    My system has both python 3.2.1rc1 and 2.6.7 installed.

    Suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Jim

    This is all I have in my Ubunto setup:

    export GLADE_HOME=/home/keith/glade4_linux32_ub10
    export PATH=$GLADE_HOME/bin:$PATH
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$GLADE_HOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:$GLADE_HOME/bin
    export PYTHONHOME=/opt/ActivePython-2.7

    From the Python documentation, modules are searched according to PYTHONPATH:

    When a module named spam is imported, the interpreter searches for a
    file named spam.py in the directory containing the input script and
    then in the list of directories specified by the environment variable
    PYTHONPATH. This has the same syntax as the shell variable
    PATH, that is, a list of directory names. When PYTHONPATH
    is not set, or when the file is not found there, the search continues in an
    installation-dependent default path; on Unix, this is usually
    .:/usr/local/lib/python.

    It looks like you need to change your PYTHONPATH so Python can find the site module.
    For example, mine is at /opt/ActivePython-2.7/lib/python2.7/site.py

    Hello Glade-Supporters,

    Glade 4.1.68 (RHEL 64bit version) does not start on my openSUSE 11.3 linux OS (64bit).
    (however some older versions of Glade did)

    My start script looks as follows:

    #!/bin/bash
    pushd ${HOME}/CAD/glade/_work
    export mach_type=`uname -m`
    export GLADE_HOME="${HOME}/openSUSE/tarballs/glade4_linux64_rh4"
    export PATH=${GLADE_HOME}/bin:${PATH}
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${GLADE_HOME}/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:${GLADE_HOME}/bin
    export PYTHONHOME=/usr
    #strace glade >& glade.strace
    glade
    popd

    Error message is:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site.py", line 519, in <module>
    main()
    File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site.py", line 502, in main
    known_paths = addsitepackages(known_paths)
    File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site.py", line 268, in addsitepackages
    sitedirs.append(os.path.join(prefix, sys.lib,
    AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'lib'

    Python installation path is /usr/lib64/python2.6/..

    When running strace for glade, the relevant messages before aborting are:

    If you've not got the current ActiveState Python installed on your machine, don't set PYTHONHOME.

    On CentOS 4.x if I set this to /usr, I get the similar error 'ImportError: No module named site'.

    If PYTHONHOME is not specified, then Glade should start up OK.

    Thanks.

    Glade still fails to start when not setting PYTHONHOME:

    #!/bin/bash
    pushd ${HOME}/CAD/glade/_work
    export mach_type=`uname -m`
    export GLADE_HOME="${HOME}/openSUSE/tarballs/glade4_linux64_rh4"
    export PATH=${GLADE_HOME}/bin:${PATH}
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${GLADE_HOME}/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:${GLADE_HOME}/bin
    #export PYTHONHOME=/usr
    #strace glade >& glade.strace
    glade
    popd

    Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
    Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
    Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]

    It would seem that it's still finding the system /usr/lib64/python2.6 stuff.

    Can you do a printenv | grep PYTHON and see if anything is getting set elsewhere?

    The alternative is to install the activestate python 2.7 and set pythonhome to point to that.

    #1043

    I just checked on Ubunto 10.4 and the behaviour is as you describe if PYTHONHOME is not set.

    Glade is currently statically linked to version 2.7 of python. So you need to make sure you have the same version on your system. If there's a way round it checking for the site packages it would be helpful, I'll see if there is.

    #1044

    I've rebuilt the linux builds of Glade to use Python 2.6. Please try the versions (same build ID, 4.1.68) on the website and see if this helps.

    Hello,

    Thanks a lot. Glade 4.1.69 RHEL / 64 bit works perfect with openSUSE 11.3 / python 2.6 now.

    Good job!

    BR,

    Ewald

    Thanks for reporting the problem, Ewald. Looks like something was broken in the ActiveState Python 2.7 release.
