Subject description: python is a bitch (!?)
 

The promise of lucid (or precize) puppy is that one can use the Ubuntu repos right? Well, the past year I have tried to install several python programs in lucid puppy from those repos and I learned that it was not that easy. To name a few:

Gourmet (recipe manager)
Griffith (movie manager)
Nicotine (soulseek client)
qTorrent (bittorrent client)
Specto (website monitor)
Taskmanager (enhanced to-do list app)

For all of those exist .deb files in Ubuntu repos but none of those work when installed in lucid puppy by clicking on the deb file.

So what I would like to have is a simple how2 manual on adding these debs in lucid puppy. Many of the most beautiful apps are pythons and puppy can not handle them well yet.

start the program from console and see what is missing.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/gourmet (or any other)
will show you what is needed (for gourmet) and lets you install any missing .deb

simple! Isn't it ?

If it only was that simple! Take gourmet for instance (in lucid puppy 528005). Install every dependency then terminal reports that glade is not installed, but it is.
