Hello Dan,

I had this working a few days ago before I upgraded!

Here is what I get:

$ python2
Python 2.7.7 (default, Jun  3 2014, 01:48:00)
[GCC 4.9.0 20140521 (prerelease)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import pygtk
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named pygtk

>>> import gtk
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named gtk
>>>

Same error:  No module named gtk.

Anyone understand what's wrong?

Thanks!!!
