EasyGUI is very limited in what it does--it basically provides some 
canned dialogs, nothing more. It's similar to EasyDialogs from the older 
MacPython days. My guess is PyObjC would be overkill or too complicated 
for his needs (otherwise he'd be writing his GUI in Tkinter).

Running EasyGUI itself is as simple as double-clicking "easygui.py" in 
Finder. It brings up a demo with illustrations of the various 
dialogs/widgets that EasyGUI can implement. Without a bit more 
information about what you are doing, I can't help diagnose the problem.
