Hi, Everyone,

Could someone help me how to install pygtk? I get some problems with

Here is the error I get while install pygtk:

I use python 2.4, I first installed glade-2.0.1-win32_with_gtk, and
then pycairo-1.0.2-1.win32-py2.4, pygobject-2.12.3-1.win32-py2.4, and
pygtk-2.8.6-1.win32-py2.4. Afterwards, I try to setup pygtk-2.8.4, and
got the above error.

Although I did above operations suggested by the information from the
web , I seems that I still do not have pygtk in my computer. I want to
run cankiri.py (which relies on pygtk), and still get the following
error. cankiri.py is used to record screen video , and could be
downloaded at https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/jibohe2/cankiri.py?uniq=-z4xh4m.
Thank you so much !
