Did you look at the wxPython wiki?


Try that. If it doesn't work, then you'll probably have to install
from source. However, I wouldn't bother with it and Python 2.6 until
wxPython's next release as there are some goofy things going on with
the manifest files. Maybe this doesn't affect Linux users
though...however, if you experience weird issues, that may be the
cause...or you didn't build it correctly.

If you need help building wxPython, please post to the wxPython list.
