Problem installing wxremind on Mac

Hi

I've used wxremind before on this Mac (flat-panel iMac), but I  
decided to reinstall my system and now am running into a problem.  
Here's what I've done:

1. Installed Tiger and all available updates
2. Installed the latest Remind (works fine)
3. Installed the latest Python framework build for this machine (2.5.1)
4. Installed the latest matching wxPython (wxPython2.8-osx- 
unicode-2.8.4.2-universal-py2.5.dmg)
5. Dragged wxremind and friends to /usr/local/bin , and added /usr/ 
local/bin to my PATH

And now, if I open a terminal and type wxremind, I get:

$ wxremind
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 13, in <module>
   File "/usr/local/bin/wxremind/wxremind.py", line 32, in <module>
ImportError: No module named docutils.core

What might I have missed or done wrong?

Thanks
David

I also hit that error on OS X 10.4 using the same steps you mentioned.
I grabbed the docutils module and installed it and that seemed to do it.

Re: Problem installing wxremind on Mac

David,

This is a bug in wxremind. I'll release a fix within a day or so. The problem is that wxremind is trying
unsuccessfully to load docutils.core which is needed for yeaGTD. The bug is that it should only try to load
docutils.core if you have yeagtd installed. The easy, immediate fix is to install this module from

	http://docutils.sourceforge.net/index.html

I was going to check out yeaGTD anyway. I've downloaded the docutils  
module and will install and try later.

Thanks

[ANN] Remind 3.1.2-BETA-1 is available

Hi,

Remind 3.1.2-BETA-1 is available from
http://www.roaringpenguin.com/en/penguin/openSourceProducts/remind

There are quite a few changes in the calendar code, so I'd appreciate
it if back-end authors could test this version.

The WHATSNEW doc follows.

Regards,

David.

CHANGES TO REMIND

* Version 3.1 Patch 2

+ MINOR ENHANCEMENTS

- tkremind: Added some key bindings to make navigation easier.

- tkremind: Made calendar boxes use space more efficiently.

- remind: The functionality of "rem" is now built into remind.  If you
  invoke remind as "rem", then it uses a default filename.  The installer
  sets up "rem" as a symbolic link to "remind".

+ CHANGE

Re: [ANN] Remind 3.1.2-BETA-1 is available

David,

Thanks for the on-going efforts on what is already wonderful.

I've check the beta with wxRemind, including the monthly calendar display, and everything seems to work perfectly.

On the other hand, when I run the new tkremind I get:
Application initialization failed: no display name and no $DISPLAY environment variable
Error in startup script: invalid command name "wm"
    while executing
"wm withdraw ."
    (file "/usr/local/bin/tkremind" line 18)

Best wishes,
Dan

??? It works fine for me.  Do you have $DISPLAY set properly?
Are you running tkremind under X?

Regards,

David.

Re: [ANN] Remind 3.1.2-BETA-1 is available

David,

No, under OS X Tiger on an intel macbook. (Sorry, I should have mentioned that.)  tkremind has always worked
fine on my mac before.

Ah... I have no clues about OS X or the Mac in general.

One thing has changed in tkremind: It now depends on tcllib
(http://tcllib.sourceforge.net/)  Most Linux distros have packages.
(On Debian or Ubuntu, apt-get install tcllib)

However, this wouldn't cause the error you're seeing.  I think your "wish"
executable is compiled to require X rather than whatever Apple's windowing
system is called.

Regards,

David.

Tri-monthly reminders

There may be a simple answer to this, but I haven't found it yet:
How do I set a reminder to go off on the first of every third month?
