Crash on startup - Archlinux

Postby clement » Sun Mar 06, 2011 18:14

Hello there,

Doing some datamining school project, I would like to give Orange a try (actually, the UI looks better than Knime's :-) ).

I'm running Archlinux, so I simply downloaded the latest nightly and runned
Code: Select all
sudo python2 install

as specified in README.txt.

Then running
Code: Select all

I got nothing but the startup-loading popup ("Register Widget x..." etc.), and a brief blank window.

So I searched a bit through this section and found some other problems that looked like mine, mainly related to PyQt version, and PyQt's binding.

I did
Code: Select all
>>> from PyQt4.QtCore import qVersion, PYQT_VERSION_STR
>>> print qVersion(), PYQT_VERSION_STR

That brought me the following results :
Code: Select all
4.7.2 4.8.3

And I don't know what to do now.
Can you help please ?

Does the orange-canvas script print any output. Also can you post the contents of "~/.orange/OrangeCanvasQt4/outputLog.html".

This is probably the same problem as

Thank you for your time.

orange-canvas does not print any output.

As for outputLog.html, here is what I get :

Indeed, it seems related to the problem you are pointing (I also run sip version 4.12.1). I will try to rollback sip to a former version.

but you would also have to install qwt5 and py-qwt5 (or whatever it is called on Arch) ...
qwt5 is a Qt plotting framework/module/...

Yep, I already fixed that part of the problem :)

You are going to hate me... Now the compilation halt on "pyxtract - no such file or directory"

Thank you anyway :)
