sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.6

Which depends on python2.4

You do know aptitude, which displays dependend packages so that you can
browse from python2.4 through the dependand packages and find e.g. wx in
the correct version?

And I repeat: Copying will lead to severe problems! You're talking about
binary extensions here, that depend on a specific libpython.
