I am a bit stuck in a small project, trying to quit a PyGTK program.
Here are some relevant snippets:
def init_gui (self) :
self.window = gtk.Window (gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL)
self.window.connect ("delete_event", self.delete_event)
self.window.connect ("destroy", self.destroy)
def delete_event(self, widget, event, data=None) :
def destroy(self, widget, data=None) :
Seems pretty standard so far... Now, I want the following: if a
certain condition has been met (categories run out...), the program
should quit, exit status 0.
if len(categories) == 0 :
The error message I get is the following:
RuntimeError: called outside of a mainloop
So I suppose that I should send a signal or event to the main loop,
which will terminate it by some magic on its own. But how do I do
Thanks in advance for your time!
