I installed python 3.2 but with I try to run things with python3 I get a
symbol not found error for PyCObject_asVoidPtr... whatever that is... so I'm
going to stick with python.
Hmmm, okay. I tweaked the PIL install, then reran it, and made some
progress. In setup.py I changed *JPEG_ROOT = None* to *JPEG_ROOT =
Hmm, the readout seems okay, though I don't know what FreeType2 is -
--- TKINTER support ok
--- JPEG support ok
--- ZLIB (PNG/ZIP) support ok
*** FREETYPE2 support not available
jpgs work now! But pngs still don't. "Unable to load background.png". The
png is definitely there; I've tried it on like six different ones ><.
Thanks for taking the time to look at this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
