compatibility / pygtk


PyGTK is known to be incompatible with PyPy. There are build issues likely to be shared with other C extensions, namely that the autoconf/automake macro used to find header files doesn't work with PyPy. Aside from that, other incompatibilities remain that prevent a successful build.

PyPy's Issue 625 lists other incompatibilities known so far, including PyPy's lack of PyOS_InputHook (which is also needed by other extensions, like some of those generated by Shed Skin.

PyGTK (including PyGObject and PyCairo) is a dependency for many applications:

- Camelot - Elixir - Gajim - gquilt - GRAMPS - Meld - TortoiseHg - UMIT
