#668 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Sugar: Native on Mac OS X (10.x)

Reported by: lucian Owned by: lucian
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: Unspecified
Severity: Minor Keywords: mac osx gtk x11
Cc: Distribution/OS: Other (name your distribution in the description)
Bug Status: New

Description

Since OS X is unix-like and has a GTK port (and most of Sugar's other dependencies) it should be possible to get Sugar or at least activities to run there.

First step is to get GTK and pygtk running.

Tried installing native GTK (quartz) with macports, ran into this bug http://trac.macports.org/ticket/18956#comment:9

Got Gtk.framework from http://www.gtk-osx.org/. Does not work well with either macports or fink, must build everything by hand.

After building pygobject, stumbled upon this bug, not in upstream yet. http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=60135

PyGTK quartz builds after adding a patch (see the macports bug for details).

PyGTK hello world runs nicely without starting up X11, albeit with all the usual GTK-on-mac visual bugs.

  • Milestone changed from 0.88 to not applicable

Just removing the milestone as this effort is not directly tied to a specific release.

Not really useful to track this. Patches welcome.
