Google Summer of Code 2009 talk in MMU Cyberjaya

I would like to thank the Open Source Alliance(OSA) of MMU Cyberjaya for organizing the event and everyone who attended. The presentation slides for Umit have been uploaded on the ASEAN Google SoC group. This group serves a medium for interested students within the ASEAN region to exchange thoughts about the program.

PyGTK on Mac OSX

With Python installed, the Jhbuild script enables a myriad of software packages such as GTK+ and GNOME to be built. The script can be download from here. Do run the script once downloaded. After that, run the bootstrap process which should be done once.
# jhbuild bootstrap
# jhbuild build meta-gtk-osx-bootstrap

Build the software:
# jhbuild build
# jhbuild shell
# jhbuild build meta-gtk-osx-python
