This should work if you are using wxPython as a package, e.g from
"wxPython.wx import *".  In other words, the wxPython directory does not
need to be on the PYTHONPATH, but the directory which contains it.  (And the
site-packages directory is supposed to be there automagically.)

I havn't heard of this one.  What kind of X-errors?  GTK and KDE are
supposed to play nice together and I havn't had any troubles in this area.
(Though I don't run KDE that often...)
