Newbie glade tutorial error

Postby aegis4244 » Tue May 28, 2013 9:18 pm

Hi, I'm new to glade and mostly new to python. Tried this tutorial

got the following error ......

GLib-GObject-ERROR **: cannot create instance of abstract (non-instantiatable) type `GtkBox'
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

Thought I might have made a typo, tried his zipped code. Same error. I'm using Ubuntu 13.04, if that matters.

I'm just trying to learn how to make a simple GUI app that will execute a command when I click a button. Did the same thing in Gambus years ago to build a quick and dirty app to help teach my daughter the alphabet. I would like to use glade or some other RAD tool to do the same. In gambus, I just used EXEC and it was pretty simple.

Is there something similar in python ?

AS I understand it, I first have to create a GUI with glade, then write a .py python script that uses the .glade file, which needs to be in the same directory. Seems needlessly complex for the simple task I have in mind. A simple grid of buttons that EXEC a command when pressed.

Is there a better tool out there for my simple needs ? Maybe better suited for a novice ?

Thanks for the help, sorry for the rambling post.....
